Infix Server offers unrivalled facilities for automated manipulation of existing PDFs from page imposition to full-on content manipulation.
The unique advantage of the product is that it can seamlessly integrate new content into existing PDF documents – changing images, reflowing and justifying new and existing text.
It also offers full document assembly including insertion/replacement of images or other PDFs – all specified using an XML control file.
It's ideal for use in a web-based PDF editing system such as a corporate stationary management solution. Take a look at some live customer sites using our technology for just this purpose.
I’m really happy on where the product has gone in the last few months dealing with you guys. The good communication / feature enhancements have really made a huge difference. So I thank you very much for that.Brett, Australia
Using an existing PDF as a template, Infix server can reflow and justify new text into marked areas as well as replace existing artwork & photographs.
PDF templates can be easily created in a matter of minutes using Infix Pro. All template
information is then stored within the instrumented PDF documents.

One use for this facility is to allow your customers to create their own advertisements on-line. Presented with a selection of example ad-types (PDF templates), users would upload images and text and then instantly review fully print-ready PDF ads generated from their data and template choices.
Place existing PDF pages onto other pages. Placed pages are positioned using x,y coordinates and can be scaled to fit within a bounding box. Scaling can be controlled within pre-set limits to ensure pages are not over or undersized during automatic placement.
Publishers and repro houses can use Infix Server to automate the generation of folios without the need to revert to the original page source or applications such as InDesign or Quark.
When integrated into a publishing workflow, the software can instantly respond to changes in magazine layout by automatically re-generating all affected folio lines.
Folios may be as simple or complex as required and can even be created to allow for changes to left/right layout when pages are moved within a publication.
A very simple folio for changing page numbers:
“[P] The Green Review”
A more complex folio for changing page number, magazine name and date on either left or right
[lpageno] [lmag] [ldate] [rdate] [rmag] [rpageno]
Infix Server searches for the tags you request and replaces them with your alternative text maintaining the font and style of the original tag text. It also offers full control over text alignment and reflow behaviour.
Infix Server can search for and replace text within an existing PDF, seamlessly reflowing and rejustifying the completed text.
By adding simple macros or “call-outs” such as
existing document, sophisticated variable-data documents can be prepared. Call-outs can be added
source document (InDesign, Illustrator, MSWord etc.) or to the PDFs you produce using Infix.
Using Infix Server's unique PDF text reflow engine, callouts can be placed on their own, within existing paragraphs or even within text that flows across columns and pages.
Accurate reflow & automatic text fitting ensure that text replacements occur seamlessly and are undetectable by the customer.
Place existing PDF pages onto other pages.
Placed pages are positioned using x,y coordinates and can be scaled to fit within a bounding box. Scaling can be controlled within pre-set limits to ensure pages are not over or undersized during automatic placement.
You may have a library of corporate media that needs updating to reflect new premises or company ownership.
Use Infix Server to process the entire batch of PDFs - it will handle any number of documents, performing the same text and image replacements on each - all without needing anyone to watch over it.
