A true PDF spell-check – worth the admission price

Just the spell check alone is worth the money.

As far as I know, there is no other PDF application nor plug in can really spell check the actual contents of the PDF, not even Acrobat itself. All others product claims to preform check can only check the “Comments” field.

Some even suggest to go back to the original document file to run spell check there. Which is unpractical as most of us receive PDF file without the access to the original and we need to spell the PDF file.

All the other features in Infix [are] just as good as Acrobat if not better. The “Contents Text Box” works well for extracting text from various part of the document and replace back to same file. Good for contents requiring translation.

A time saver for this type of task if you need to have a few rounds of translation edits.

Your product is simply wonderful.

We’ve tried most products regarding PDF conversion and editing but none offer the flexibility and ease of use as Infix.

We restore books of antiquity and create new pages without the blemishes, library stamps and the like. Your product makes our job much easier and we are able to produce wonderful replicas of works of beauty restoring books of old.

The additional features regarding tracking revisions and document protection are perfect for our business or any business that wishes to protect their PDF content on-line that has a collaborative workforce working on various aspects of a document.

We especially like the “lightweight” impact on our systems meaning your product loads fast, does not slow down any operating system, and is compatible with office production and work-flow programs.

We highly recommend Infix Pro for small or large projects.
Please consider Infix Pro as your company standard for PDF editing. We did.

Help with filling-out PDF tax returns

I help non-resident landlords with their tax returns and find Infix PDF Editor incredibly helpful for filling out forms for companies and individuals. It’s very easy to use and makes editing forms quick and hassle free; I used to do drafts by hand for clients with multiple accounts – there is now no need to as I can simply make changes to the form on my PC and email clients their drafts.

Fantastic product that I can highly recommend for home or office use! Very good for those that do self assessment.

Windows 10

Windows 10 Introduces direct Print to PDF Function

Microsoft have finally caught up with MAC OS X and included Print to PDF as a direct feature for any document in Windows 10 that is open in a text editing program that can be printed from, such as Microsoft natives Word or Notepad, or third party programs like LibreOffice. This also applies to any file, not just text documents.

Google Drive

PDF Functionality within 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.

Replacing embedded fonts in PDF

I used Infix PDF editor to fix a problem with font embedding.

The problem was simple – I had a long (250 pages +) ready PDF file compiled of a number of separate shorter PDFs from multiple authors, with multiple fonts used. Part of the fonts were such that I do not have on my computer and such that require a license (non-free fonts). These caused a problem, because I needed all fonts to be embedded in the file, but getting the fonts re-encoded with all fonts embedded was out of the question. At the end of the day I had 6 different fonts to be “taken care of” with hundreds of occurrences all over the long document!

I tried a number of tricks and hacks, but nothing seemed to work, then I found Infix PDF editor that allowed me to _easily_ find and replace the problematic fonts used with non-problematic fonts automatically, with an automated feature of the Infix PDF editor software. After replacement the problematic and unusable file became usable and my problem was resolved very easily.

My situation was in “natural” language in English that is the text was not mathematical characters or the sort – for that circumstance Infix was a perfect tool.

Wonderful PDF editing in Venezuela

I am a Professor of Eastern University of Venezuela.

My experience with Infix since 2010 when I was enjoying my sabbatical year at the Centre of Simulating and Modelling-University of the Andes, Venezuela has been wonderful.

Infix proved a valuable tool in my routine academic work as Tutor and Co-Tutor of Engineer and Biomedicine Students, highlighting the possibility of modifying texts in PDF or Latex that otherwise would be impossible.

Likewise, It has allowed me to correct versions of manuscripts submitted for publication in professional journals and heavy documents for which I have recommended to many colleagues who were unaware of their wide versatility.

Student avoids bookmark pain in gluteus maximus

Hello, I´m an university student from Germany.

For my lectures there´re a lot of different books I have to read, so it´s very useful that my university offers some of them as eBooks (PDF).

Unfortunately most of them don´t have integrated bookmarks and it´s really a pain in the ass if you have to create them manually. So I tried some PDF-tools, but most of them don´t have the option to create bookmarks automatically and if [they did] it got messy, because they p.ex. made for mathematical formulas extra bookmarks.

With Infix you can select the fonts, which you only want to accept as bookmarks and get easily the results you desire.

I can finally just get my literature I need and just start studying without dealing with the nonsense of creating bookmarks manually, which is reason enough for me to use Infix.

Web search offers solution to old papers

I found Infix software in a “change embedded font in PDF” search.

My non-profit organization has old paper documents that it wants to archive, and we want to make searchable versions available to our members.

These paper documents were created with fonts that are not accurately recognized by OCR software, so simple “scan to PDF” functions or image file format conversions do not work by themselves. OCR suspects aren’t necessarily recognized in Acrobat.

This is where Infix comes in. The EDIT/FIND & REPLACE/REPLACE FONT functionality can replace all fonts with a commonly recognized one such as Times New Roman. After fixing a few OCR errors to hidden text with Infix OCR CORRECTIONS, search functions work as needed. Documents appear as originally created.

Making PDF’s searchable is only one of the useful editing functions in Infix. More generally, the value is being able to edit the content of a PDF without having the source file available.

Frustrated by a dose of sheets

I just recently started using the Infix demo software, and I must say that I find this to be the best software available for editing PDFs.

What I like about Infix is that it allows you to directly edit the text of a PDF. All other PDF editors I have used do not actually allow you to edit the text of a document. They only allow you to add objects over the document that then can be edited. It’s not an actual edit of the document. It’s more similar to a transparent sheet being placed on the document, that can then be manipulated.

Infix is a better solution because of what I mentioned before, the ability to directly manipulate the text of a document instead of having to figure out a workaround.

Personally, I maintained a database that consisted of thousands of PDF files of news articles, and I found it a pain, if not downright impossibility, to format and edit these articles for ease of reading. Now with the Infix software. I can easily change what I need to in an article. No workarounds.

If you regularly work with PDF documents and need to edit them, then definitely consider getting Infix. It’s vastly superior to other PDF editing software packages.
