As with other PDF-Exchange products the editor doesn't disappoint, it works as advertised and does all I want and more :)

I had a document with both text and pasted images. While Acrobat Pro kept complaining there was rendered text and wouldn't OCR the available images, PDFXChange got right to it.

Created PDF with Table, and end product resulted in far right of table not shown on PDF even though I justified it to center.
