Don’t let an awkward PDF get in the way of a dream home

I work for a large real-estate broker and have need of a solid, reliable, easy to use PDF editor for replying to banks, counter-offers etc. I have tried at least 15 other PDF editors including ‘cloud based’ editors (which concern me a little because of confidentiality).

I found the Infix PDF Editor in a review of several other editors, after using the Infix PDF Editor I am amazed that it took me so long to hear about it.
I have shown it to many professionals and they all agree it is the best PDF editor option they have seen, balancing ease of use, power, options, speed, local processing (security), and reasonable price. The interface is easy to use and my secretary only needed a few minutes to begin using it efficiently.

Overall, I would recommend Infix PDF Editor to everyone who needs to edit/create/fill-out pdf forms, it is a great product.

Under the hood

Infix – it’s real power is under the hood

Under The Hood of a PDF Engine

Infix is one of the few PDF editors which gets things done.

First of all, very useful in my line of work is the option to export the PDF for use with CAT tools (xml only so far, but probably other options will be available in time).

Second, I was amazed by the many options for manipulating the text. Replacing fonts is easier than ever, resizing, splitting or joining textboxes is just a child’s play. You can rebuild a textbox just with the selected text, split a textbox in several others containing a paragraph each, and most important, formatting of the text almost never fails.
After translating the exported .xml, importing the translation is just a breeze and in less than a minute you have a document with the exact same look as the original. And very accurate, too.

An intuitive interface might let you think that Infix is just a simple tool, but don’t be deceived:
it’s real power is under the hood.
It’s not perfect, but it’s still one of the best .pdf editors I’ve tried

You should try TransPDF.com for PDF translation – it uses the same PDF engine as Infix but has been super-charged for translators offering XLIFF import/export and superior handling! – Guy.

Spelling Errors in Academic Texts

Minding Your Ps and Qs in Academic Papers

In my work, I frequently produce documents such as scientific papers in PDF format from text setting systems such as Latex or Docbook.

The problem: With each of these documents, I need to run a spell checking before the document can be released. With the typesetting systems I use, the source from that the PDF is created is a mixture of the actual text content that I’d like to spell-check, and directives or XML elements that control the type setting systems. Running a spell checker on the source would thus give me tons of false positives in the non-text parts of the source.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop

As a 50+ techie dinosaur who struggles to keep up with 10 year olds I find your PDF editor really easy to use.

I work in Education with vulnerable pupils in different establishments who have the concentration span of a newt and an aversion to most things pen and paper.

Having invested years in preparing antiquated sheets I am not yet ready to let them go and the newts are not yet ready to manage without them.

We now combine their love of tech with my love of antique. We work on a laptop with the same enthusiasm that I experienced with pen and paper all those years ago. We fill in prepared sheets and comment on all sorts of things.

I am not yet able to show colleagues how wonderful your product is because I use my own laptop and work uses other software. Ease of use and price normally persuades bosses and I’d love to try. A free licence would impress them enough to allow an install on my equally antiquated laptop and an expansion of users on the ‘Monkey see Monkey do’ principle.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop. Win Win.

Cloning Across Briefs Encountered

 

Working in the legal industry, I encounter many briefs and other PDF documents that may require watermarks and headers or footers to be removed before they can be distributed.

Considering that those documents can run to thousands of pages, and may be brought to my attention at very short notice, modifying a document one page at a time has previously been challenging and tedious at the very least.

Features of Infix, particularly “Clone Across Pages” and “Delete Across Pages” have the capacity to negate a menial task, meaning my attention can be focused on far more important and complex issues.

Infix appears to be just the standalone program that I and many colleagues have been looking for – the alternative to date has involved multiple programs and complicated workflows. In Infix it’s as simple as point, click, delete and save.

Based on my experiences with Infix to date I have no reservations about recommending the program to anyone who needs .pdf editing as part of their professional toolkit.

Translator’s joy after 15-year quest

I’ve been using PDF editor for 15 years now. Paid, unpaid, free or open source. None, and I mean none of the well-known names in this market provided me with this combination of easy-to-learn, easy-to-use translation related processes.

My main need today is translating PDF docs from English to Spanish to take advantage of a wealth of literature in the Safety industry that it is not transferrable to Spanish-speaking environments.

As an educator and consultant, this ability that InFix provides is invaluable.

Infix aids editing landscaping plans in under 2 minutes!

Thanks a lot for application! Very easy to use and really effective! Infix helped me to edit the pdf file in my university and not to type it again. Because this is the first pdf editor which I tried that did exactly what I wanted in under 2 minutes, without me having any prior experience with it at all. That was after spending a good few hours looking for and trying various different pdf editors from all over the web. How frustrating!

I must confess there was one other pdf editor that also did what I wanted, but it was all in German so took several minutes of trial and error to figure out, and plastered water marks all over my pdf. The other editors either crashed or were so basic they wouldn’t let me do the one thing I wanted…

My task was really simple. I have this landscaping plan which I now want changed slightly. It is in pdf format, and all I want is to replace “paving as selected” by “permeable paving” in a label pointing to the yard. That’s really simple, you’d think. At least I thought it would be.

While other pdf editors choked on this, the Infix PDF Editor just worked. Great!

Infix helps engineers manage automation equipment maintenance manuals

I am an engineer at the glass factory in Russia. My main activity is to manage the automation equipment maintenance. Among different things I have to prepare manuals and procedures for technical maintenance. We use many types of machines produced outside our country and I have to translate into Russian many docs “how to”. Most of them are in pdf format. It is not convenient to convert them into *.doc because in many cases it is enough just to add comments in Russian and add some pages comments or photos from other sources to make the described in the pdf procedure clear for our technical staff. Moreover many pdf to doc convertors change the structure of the final document practically not editable. Very often it becomes necessary to merge some pdf’s. That’s why I prefer to use the Infix Pdf Editor which completely satisfies my needs. I recommend this convenient software to all specialists doing similar work.
Sincerely,
Alexey POZHIDAEV
