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.

Chinese Translator’s Time Saver

I am a professional English – Chinese translator and sometimes I get source files in PDF format. Before I tried Infix PDF editor, I used to do the formatting manually using Microsoft Word. Although similar end results can be achieved using Word, it takes a long time to draw the tables and insert logos, etc. I find Infix PDF editor to be very useful, because I only need to edit the text rather than worrying about the formatting, which saves a lot of time for translators like me.

Here is a summary of the advantages of Infix PDF editor that are particularly useful for me:
1. The software supports Chinese characters so I am able to produce documents in Chinese without any problems (unlike some other software).
2. There is “check spelling” and “find replace” functions, just like Microsoft Word.
3. The software is very useful for filling out PDF forms, without the need to physically printing out the forms, saving time and paper.

By looking through the menu options, there are many tools I have yet to explore (e.g. crop tool, stamps, etc.). I am sure that these will be useful for my work in the future. I highly recommend this software to everyone.

Broken Piggy Bank

Warning: You’re losing money by not using a PDF editor

The title of this post may sound a little strong, but it’s true – if you or your staff are having to recreate documents saved as PDFs every time changes are needed, then the cost of “bums on seats” and time spent will be extremely high compared to the cost of investing in PDF editing software that can make the changes you need extremely quickly and even offer added functionality such as translation, redaction and even sort out typos should they be missed!

Awesome software!

I tried many others – downloaded, tried, un-installed – but could not get the result I wanted. On Infix – it was so easy and a breeze to change.

E-Signature

Is this how your e-signature could look?

E-Signatures – Why Do We Use Them?

You may have heard the phrase “e-signature”, but do you know what it means? An e-signature, also known as “e-siggy” for short, is an Electronic Signature used when working with electronic messaging services, such as e-mail. It takes the place of a physical signature and is most commonly used on programs such as Outlook and Thunderbird when sending emails, as well as within documents such as contracts sent electronically.

Days searching for a PDF editor!

Dear all,

I was trying to adapt one PDF containing text and images, namely to replace the original text by its translation to my own language and to keep the layout and mainly images untouched. It was a page from downloaded catalogue.
I spent more than 2 day searching on internet to find any product being able to do that. Later I found that the original text was not most probably created as pure PDF but was changed to PDF format by some technique (I am not specialist in that field). Anyway the PDF Editor of Iceni was the only program which allowed me to do that task.

It took me 2 days searching, but it was worth it. Thanks to Iceni.

Best regards, Zbynek
