Help with filling-out PDF tax returns

I help non-resident landlords with their tax returns and find Infix PDF Editor incredibly helpful for filling out forms for companies and individuals. It’s very easy to use and makes editing forms quick and hassle free; I used to do drafts by hand for clients with multiple accounts – there is now no need to as I can simply make changes to the form on my PC and email clients their drafts.

Fantastic product that I can highly recommend for home or office use! Very good for those that do self assessment.

Windows 10 Introduces direct Print to PDF Function

Microsoft have finally caught up with MAC OS X and included Print to PDF as a direct feature for any document in Windows 10 that is open in a text editing program that can be printed from, such as Microsoft natives Word or Notepad, or third party programs like LibreOffice. This also applies to any file, not just text documents.

Creating a good password

If you’ve ever spent a long time creating a document you want to ultimately keep safe, then you’ll understand how important a password is! You’ve invested time and money into the writing and creation of your content, so keeping it safe is top priority – but you must remember the golden rules of creating a good, solid password first!

Effective Watermarking

You’ve got a document that you and your staff have slaved away on for hours, making revisions, edits and numerous versions as back-ups, and now you’re ready to release it to the world. It could be an infographic, a report, a study  – whatever it is, it’s your work and you don’t want other people using it without your permission (especially if you’re intending to charge for it to be downloaded and used publicly).

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.

Preventing Data Breaches & Loss of Information

 

Breach of data is a nightmare that every company dreads – we’ve all heard the horror stories; Facebook’s year-long breach exposing 6 million user’s email addresses and telephone numbers in 2013, the major leak of O2 customer information sent in website code to servers when users were browsing the web in 2012, and even mega brand Google exposing full contact lists of Gmail users in 2006!

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!
