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.

Old PDF Files and Out-of-Date Software – What to Do

In 1996 I desktop-published a field guide to cloud forest trees. I am trying to figure out how to prepare and edit my old files in order to print an updated, third edition. With changes in operating systems and software, I am left with PDFs and PostScript Type 1 fonts with no method of efficiently editing text in these files since the original DTP software I used for the project is no longer viable on my Mac with OS X.

I searched on the web for free or reasonably-priced software that would help me out. I wanted robust text editing–not patching up or annotating–something that would open my old PDFs, allow me to edit the text without changing the format, without changing fonts, etc. I was optimistic a couple of times when I found programs that SAID they could edit text, but, in the end, they all had flaws. One program would allow me to edit the text but it would shift lines and alter spacing and justification. Another could not deal with the Helvetica font (it would substitute Arial). All of this was very frustrating.

Finally I came across Iceni Infix, downloaded the trial version, and found it did everything I wanted it to do regarding text editing! I really like being able to highlight text and see the font name and size displayed in the Text Format toolbar. The Search and Replace feature will be invaluable in my work when I update scientific names. Infix will greatly facilitate the preparation of my files for this, and other, book projects.

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.

Command-line utilities replaced by Infix PDF Editor

At the office I use a legacy system from which I get reports in PDF format. The system is not flexible enough to make changes as needed. Infix has allowed me to edit those PDF reports without effort. This results in a product without artefacts which looks so good that is suitable to be sent to my clients.

Infix is easy to use, lightweight and automatically creates backup copies of the edited file. Although I recommend saving the edited file with a new file-name, this feature proved to be very useful to me several times.

I have been using several other applications, each best at what they do, to split or collate documents, re-arrange pages, change page order, rotate pages, etc., but I find Infix is the one package that can do it all. It is difficult to justify using any other software now that I’ve got used to Infix’s many features. Thanks to Infix I won’t be using command line applications any more!

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.

How to Make Infix Portable

Traditionally, most software applications have been limited to the PC or laptop they have been installed on. But many people work in an environment that may require them to use more than one device, or to regularly ‘hot desk’ and spend limited amounts of time at each workstation.

Some applications may only be used for brief periods on the computer before another user takes over that machine. System administrators are understandably nervous of letting users install their own software in case the PC becomes littered with unwanted applications.

There’s also an issue around software licensing; it usually requires an application to only be installed on one device at a time, so if you want to install the application on several devices, you need to buy several licenses. Businesses can often end up with with more licenses than are needed, which isn’t particularly cost effective.

But there is another way.
