Security Vulnerabilities in Open Source Programs

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.

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.

A PDF editor for closing property deals

I receive so many documents in PDF format and find that I cannot edit or sign them.

Presently I am trying to do a closing on a property in Florida and I am in New York. All the documents are being sent to me in PDF form and the only thing I can do is read and save them. I decided to download this program to see if it would solve the problem.

Editing invoices in PDF – simplified with Infix

I run a business as a middleman between supplier organisations and end user corporates. The normal way of doing business is for the supplier to invoice the middleman (me) directly and then I raise an invoice for the corporate. Each invoice could run to hundreds of lines and to save myself time I would find it easier to simply edit the PDF Invoice from the supplier with my logo and company details than to create a whole new document with the same 100 lines.
I also receive innumerable quotes from different suppliers which I need to forward to the corporates but I need to do this bearing my company information. Again I don’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time re-creating these documents.

I was looking for an easy programme that can edit PDF documents and have tested many but found INFIX PDF Editor the easiest to use to edit documents.

Infix – boldly editing PDF where others fears to tread

How can Infix make it so easy to search and replace occurrences in a PDF file but Adobe can not?
Wait, didn’t Adobe create the PDF format? That would be like another soda company improving on Coke and Pepsi.
Why am I even asking when it took care of my search/replace in about 3 seconds! Amazing.
I have used a plethora of “PDF” editing [applications] but so far, this has been the easiest that I have ever used and before today, I had never heard of this product.
I am going to tell all my friends and associates about this really great program. The cost does not even approach the extremeness of the “well seasoned, well established” PDF players.
I will definitely recommend that everyone purchase this inexpensive indispensable tool.

Infix OCR proves a success at college

I am an older college student who has accumulated a number of documents over the years, and I have been scanning them into PDF’s.

I sought a program to meet all my demands, something that would help with the college pre-written PDF’s I needed to work with. Yet, it also had to meet my needs with all of the other PDF’s I dealt with as well.

I tried numerous programs, wasting my money. I repeatedly hit a wall when trying to edit documents. Prior to Infix PDF editor I had to settle for a majority of pages being correct, instead of all of them.

Then I tried Infix PDF editor (professional). It was easy to install, and it did not ask me to install any other programs with it. I personally did not need to read any instructions, the program is setup to be easy to use, and Infix PDF editor did what I needed without any complications.

I ran Iceni Infix through the paces. I tried editing PDF’s in ways that other programs balked at, such as editing one page out of a multi-page document without it altering any other pages. Iceni Infix worked like a charm. I then tested it in regards to opening a document that was well over 1000 pages, I suffered no “hang-time” like I had with other programs.

I then exported a multi-page PDF into a JPG, the result was almost instantaneous and was clear in every regard. I continued tinkering with Iceni Infix, by joining multiple files, adding pages to an existing file, extracting pages and deleting them.

Iceni Infix allows me to import pages directly from my scanner; saving me one step from my previous PDF editor. I also used Iceni Infix to print pages from my email straight to PDF, clearing out all my mailbox clutter into one PDF.

I used the OCR recognition function on a scanned text file, and when it found editable text already present, Iceni Infix prevented me from inadvertently losing that text. I followed up with the OCR corrections mode, which enabled me to edit everything I needed.

Unlike any of the numerous programs I have utilized in the past, Iceni Infix PDF editor did everything I needed it to do, without any hesitance or issues. I strongly recommend Iceni Infix, and I have already started telling my friends and family about this extremely efficient program.

Skeptic won-over by PDF Translation Technology

I’m reviewing the Infix PDF Editor. I was very skeptical, to be honest, because I just couldn’t see how it would manage to do all it boasted.

My business deals with translations. Many clients send PDF only material which we then have to translate. The process involves having to extract the text, translate the text, and then create, or re-create, the format for them. This process is time consuming and even with extra costs being compensated, it is a huge time management fiasco!

Your software setup was quick, the instructions were simple, and the process was painless.

First, I exported the text into XML format. It asked to save the file, so I simply added a number 2 to the end of the file name. Then I processed the translation as usual, and once done, I imported the text back into the Infix software. Wow, there it was! I did have to tinker with some layout, and I did have to move some text around a bit, but THERE IT WAS!

I think this will be ideal for smaller projects without a lot of formatting issues, but it will certainly be a step-saver even for larger projects.

A PDF Editor for Freelance Writers

I’m a freelance writer and editor and work with PDFs in the course of my work every day, but I’ve never found a quick, easy and self-explanatory way to edit a pre-written PDF until today when I came across Infix PDF editor.

Often when you need some software quickly a search online using Google (or whichever search engine you prefer) will successfully turn up what seem to be the answer to your needs, but hours later you’re stuck with a selection of poorly designed or inaccessible software products on your laptop that you don’t want and still left scratching your head as to how to solve the problem, or worse, find that you’ve inadvertently downloaded something which is untrustworthy or damaging. I can’t count the number of times this has happened to me.

So I was so pleasantly surprised to find that Infix does what it claims to do, doesn’t install any unwanted extras in your computer, and is straightforward to understand, which is essential if like me you’re downloading it to use while on a deadline. I was able to select the part of the text that I needed to remove and replace it with the new lines in a couple of seconds without reading any manuals or watching any tutorials – I’ll be recommending this product to anyone who asks me for a reliable PDF editor in future.

That’s when my troubles began.

I’ve been using Infix on and off for a few years now and never had any regrets. It all started when I had to translate a brochure from English into Russian while maintaining the original style and layout.
 
That’s when my troubles began.
 
Lacking a proper professional Adobe Acrobat software I’d gone through a number of third-party PDF editors but even my favorite Foxit Phantom couldn’t handle the layout properly. In some cases text boxes needed resizing, in others Cyrillic symbols were not available, some editors would break down the original into too many objects making it way too tedious.
 
That’s when I stumbled upon Infix and was stunned by the number of tweaks and features I gained control over that at times it felt Adobe itself couldn’t have done a better job. Moreover Infix’s interface is originally designed around editing needs making it very convenient with all the needed tools accessible from a single toolbar. In terms of text editing, Infix flexibility makes me feel like I’ m working in a Microsoft Word environment while objects manipulation reminds of the Page Maker control over page layout.
 
To make it short, Infix became to me a one-stop solution for all my PDF editing needs.
 
Thank you, Iceni!
Regards,
Andrei
