    More power to Infix’ Find & Replace functionality

    I had 72 PDF files of satellite antenna patterns to modify. Surprisingly, my version of Acrobat X Pro had no find and replace capability. I started searching for a solution to PDF find and replace text in batches and found Infix Pro PDF Editor. It is perfect for editing, finding, and replacing text data in a multi-level directory file system. I selected the top level directory which had six sub-folders with 12 files with all unique names. The program identified and modified all the PDF files and ignored the text files in the same directories that I did not want to modify. Each find and replace on 72 individual PDF files took less than two minutes for all 72 files! Amazing PDF editor!

    Infix helps users fix and convert Word files to PDF format

    It’s a great program. Often I get information in PDF files, which should rule. It’s all sorts of documents related to my work. If not for this program, I would have to manually retype all of the text in a Word, bringing to fix and then convert them into PDF format. With such a great program, I can immediately correct this in pdf format. This greatly facilitates the work and saves even more time and nerves.

    Original Stamp

    You’ve got a document that you and your staff have slaved away on for hours, making revisions, edits and numerous versions as back-ups, and now you’re ready to release it to the world. It could be an infographic, a report, a study  – whatever it is, it’s your work and you don’t want other people using it without your permission (especially if you’re intending to charge for it to be downloaded and used publicly).

    PDF Functionality within Google Drive

    Google Drive

     

    Google Drive (previously known as Google Docs) has been through a number of changes and iterations since it went live in 2012, both to design and functionality, including the launch of two Professional Editions, Drive for Work and Drive for Education, in 2014. Comprising of 3 free web-based programs; Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides, these make up Google’s office-suite offering and allow for real-time collaboration and editing with other users that have access to the documents in question. Both desktop and app versions are available, but the app does not allow for download of documents in the same way as desktop; on the app, users can choose to Open files in different programs installed on their devices, and then Save from within those apps. Adobe is one such app, or PDF Reader for Android.

    Editing Chinese PDFs

    工作中经常会有需要更改PDF文档的时候。本软件比较好操作,刚接触就能很顺利的使用,删改,复制很方便,也可以在不同的文件之间互相复制粘贴。很方便。而且文字编辑也很方便,之前用过一款PDF编辑器,文字输入很麻烦,要通过输入代码来实现,更改字体字号也很复杂,经常搞的人头大,而本软件的操作感觉几乎和WORD差不多,很方便。真是一款不错的软件。

    – 刘伟

    Translated, this testimonial talks about how easy Infix is to use and edit PDF documents with!

    Get Maximum Performance from PDFs on your Website

    PDF on website

    You’ve built a site and you want to add a PDF or multiple PDF documents to aid user experience – maybe you want to add your brochures for easy download (and in a format they can’t then easily be edited), or a full version of your paper catalogue to save on sending copies through the post – whatever the reason, you don’t only want users to view them, you want search engines such as Google to be able to index them too! This way, you stand a chance of your PDF pages appearing in the search result pages for matching queries, and as such, an increased click through rate to those pages directly!

    Security Vulnerabilities in Open Source Programs

    Open Source

    Using open source software can have its benefits – the quality can be better than when using proprietary programs, as more than one development team can work to iron out bugs and glitches. End users can also have more of a say in the future development of the software, including custom elements and flexibility with compatibility to different operating systems. Some of the most popular software in the world is open source, including Linux, WordPress, Firefox, Magento and Thunderbird, and typically the response is good, but there are some potential pitfalls to be aware of! Security is a big concern, and it’s important that both developers and users of open source software know how to protect themselves.
