In the Pro version of Infix PDF Editor, you can take any PDF and export it in a HTML format, effectively converting it into a self contained web page. This is a handy feature if you want to quickly place content online without forcing people to download a PDF file.
Today marks the anniversary of the High Performance Computing Act of 1991 (HPCA) or Gore Bill as it is commonly referred to, having been the creation of Senator and Vice President Al Gore, with the purpose to ensure the United States maintained their leadership in high-performance computing, through a coordinated Federal Programme.
Gore is noted by many, including internet pioneers Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf, for his significant contribution in supporting the development of the internet, with Gore recognising very early on the potential impact the internet could have, and the wide-ranging educational and economic benefits it could bring, and influenced by a report by Leonard Kleinrock, a member of the team who created the ARPANET.
The passing of the bill would result in the establishment of the National Information Infrastructure (NII), also known as the Information Superhighway. In addition to the NII, the HPCA also provided the essential funding for a National Research and Education Network (NREN).
Following the promulgation of the Act, the impact on the development of technological advances would be vast, and see the creation in 1993 of the Mosaic web browser, following the Bill’s funding of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Marc Andreessen, Founder of Netscape, was part of the team working at the University of Illinois and Andreessen would later conclude that left to the private sector, it would have taken years to achieve the results seen following the Gore Bill’s implementation.

In Infix PDF Editor, we can rotate a variety of different objects on the page. We can even rotate entire pages – or the entire document (when we want it to be displayed in landscape or portrait mode).
Infix PDF Editor allows us to create interesting and unusual layouts when we rotate individual objects like text boxes or images. In this document, we’ll look at a few of our options for rotating PDFs and individual selections within them.
Highlighting is a handy feature for reference work, but there’s a range of applications where highlighting comes in handy:
- If you’re reviewing someone else’s work, highlighting helps them pick out important passages for correction.
- Highlighting is useful for studying; you can mark passages easily for revision or reference.
- You can highlight sections of a brochure and pass on the file another department, such as marketing, allowing a consistent use of information across your business.
In this article, we’ll look at how highlighting works in Infix PDF Editor and go through the steps needed to apply and label highlights. The features we’ll cover are available in both Standard and Pro editions.
Congratulations to Rasmus Lerdorf, the renowned programmer responsible for creating PHP scripting language, who celebrates his 45th birthday today.
November 20th 1985 marks the 28th Anniversary of the release of Windows 1.0, Microsoft’s first version of an operating system which supported multi-tasking together with a graphic interface for PC’s. Microsoft’s working name for this new operating system was Interface Manager, but they replaced the name to reflect the new multiple computing windows which the system featured.
While editing a PDF, you might need to change the fonts to match your company branding or to bring a dated document in line with current branding guidelines. You may have been sent a document with an unusual font which you don’t have on your own PC (if the document contains subset fonts, it may not include every available character, so editing can be troublesome).
You may simply prefer the look of an alternative font and want to swap fonts in your PDF to improve the appearance.
Whether you’re changing a font in a single sentence or throughout an entire document, doesn’t have to be a laborious process using Infix PDF Editor.
I am a screenwriter and film producer and I’m often dealing with PDF documents that require amendments, alterations, changes. I have Adobe Pro, but it’s always a supreme hassle dealing with changes and with sensitive documents needing attention the tool I turn to is Infix.
One of the many essential uses I’ve found for Infix is the excellent document signature option. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been in transit with a document needing to be signed NOW. Without a printer and a scanner the seconds turn to hours and that’s often too late. With Infix, I can place my scanned signature right on the dotted line.
As a writer, I’ve used Infix to make changes to screenplays and books that were virtually impossible to alter in ACROBAT. All in all, it’s a great and flexible program.
