A big improvement over version 7. Back to being a fine Adobe replacement,

This review is from: PDF Converter Professional 8.0 (DVD-ROM)
I have been using PDF Creator for years. In my opinion, the company has gone through a couple of poor versions of the product. Version 7 for me, was a disatster. It was unstable, slow, and unpredictable. We had to bail on Ver 7 and go back to Adobe. But Nuance is back on track with Version 8. We create, read, and edit Adobe PDF files extensively at our office every day. After some frustration with Adobe, I switched back to Creator Pro 8 and have been very pleased. The interface and features are more intuitive than Adobe's product, and Creator Pro 8 seems to everything that I could do in Adobe. I also like that the program connects with Evernote and Dropbox directly (although it is missing SkyDrive connectivity at this point). The PDF Converter feature is still available and is a great tool. It also me to convert PDFs to a Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, or RTF file. I can pick the format... Standard page, legal size, or Excel. Accuracy, especially for converting to Word, is excellent. There is a lot of other functionality, such as advanced editing, secure signatures, note dictation, and others; but the main thing is that Converter Pro 8 is very stable and has been an excellent Adobe replacement. No crashes or unexpected results yet.
UPDATE after a few weeks: Using it every day at work. Holding up very well. No compatibility issues, nor freeze-ups or bugs, and just as fast as Adobe. Happy with it.

Does it have the ability to redact text, such as social security numbers for example?
