I've not discovered any issues or challenges with the software so far. I'd argue this is a great pdf creator/ editor with a huge suite of functionality that should cater to most users. Compared to some I looked at prior to this software it is streaks ahead, I mean some editors really do not have a user friendly interface, or very appealing. Where as I could understand very quickly what was what and how to get on which the task I needed to fulfil.

Pros

Clean layout, intuitive, similar look and feel to Adobe Acrobat which made the conversion over much more seamless. Also the features and functionality is snappy, in that there isn't a delay, where other software's struggle with this especially switching out content such as imagery/ text etc.

Cons

Not much...the only suggestion I've found to improve the already great features is that on the page navigation panel selecting multiple pages you cannot click a page, then shift click one further along to select a range of pages. Ctrl click works which is still really great, I'm not being a [SENSITIVE CONTENT] here, just a small opportunity to improve an already well catered for product :).
