How To Use iOS 3D Touch Function to Print to PDF

If you’re using an iPhone model 6s onwards, then you’ll be able to use the 3D Touch functionality to do all sorts of commands, depending on the app you’re using. Introduced in June 2016, 3D Touch allows users to select from different options depending on how hard they press down on the phone screen; for example, a slight touch on an email in the Mail app will open a preview, whereas a slightly harder push will open the message completely. This feature is used across a wide range of apps for different purposes, one of the most common being the “Print” function.

Keep a Natural Work Environment for Increased Productivity

A cluttered desk often means a cluttered workload, but does that mean if your desk is bare then your day will be more productive? A recent study by scientists at the University of Exeter and Cardiff University’s School of Psychology has shown that productivity in the office can actually be improved by 15% if plants are introduced to the environment, rather than enforcing a minimalist environment.

Confused. A college student is confused by her class notes

Confusing Instructions? We Agree!

We love Infix users who tell us what they think – even if it’s not all roses.

One blogger has gone the extra mile to point out the good, the bad and the ugly in Infix 7. roserodent highlights some glaring omissions from our on-line user manual, particularly when it comes to selecting multiple objects on a page. Oh and a really confusing explanation of how to delete objects across pages – even we found that confusing when we re-read it this morning.

The great thing about the new on-line manual is it’s easy for us to change and all users see the updates straight away. So the confusing text is now gone and we hope the explanation of how to select multiple objects is now clearer.

Roserodent has lots of other suggestions for how we can improve Infix – some of which we plan to include in the next update. Some will take us a bit longer.

Visit roserodent‘s blog now for a really informative report of her experiences with Infix 7.

SDL’s Paul Filkin takes a look at Infix 7

Language Division’s Client Communities Director – Paul Filkin gets to grips with Infix 7 and TransPDF.com to translate a real-world PDF.
It’s fair to say he likes what he sees both with Infix 7 and the XLIFF translation facilities of TransPDF.com.

“This is really a wonderful tool even without the translation options.”

Paul helpfully includes screenshots and a short movie showing his efforts translating a highly styled car brochure.
Finally he ends with his own wish-list for features he’d like to see in future from us.
You can read his full and informative blog post Paul Filkin’s blog.

Key On Computer Showing Privacy Password Or Unlocking

PDF Certificate Security

You may think that using a password on valuable PDF documents is enough, and to some degree, password protection does give security against unauthorised access by people not allowed to view the file. However, passwords can be guessed or shared accidentally, so enabling certificate security is the next step up, and ensures that the person’s identity is verified before they can view the document. This will help prevent against tampering and eavesdropping from unauthorised personnel.

Don’t let an awkward PDF get in the way of a dream home

I work for a large real-estate broker and have need of a solid, reliable, easy to use PDF editor for replying to banks, counter-offers etc. I have tried at least 15 other PDF editors including ‘cloud based’ editors (which concern me a little because of confidentiality).

I found the Infix PDF Editor in a review of several other editors, after using the Infix PDF Editor I am amazed that it took me so long to hear about it.
I have shown it to many professionals and they all agree it is the best PDF editor option they have seen, balancing ease of use, power, options, speed, local processing (security), and reasonable price. The interface is easy to use and my secretary only needed a few minutes to begin using it efficiently.

Overall, I would recommend Infix PDF Editor to everyone who needs to edit/create/fill-out pdf forms, it is a great product.
