PDF Editor House Loan Happiness

Another insurance agent referred this product [Infix PDF Editor] to me and I absolutely love it!

There are times when a mortgage company needs an immediate update to a form that our system may take a day or two to update. This has solved that problem for us and improve our service!

We can now quickly response and provide an updated document within seconds. It is very easy to use and the price beats its competition by a long shot. I will definitely be recommending this product to others!

Thanks!

Editing Greek PDFs

I have received a sample price list in PDF and I tried to make some necessary changes as to to change names and description of the products into my language (Greek).

I tried to do by using edit command of Acrobat but it was impossible.

Then a friend of mine suggested to try to download infix PDF editor.

I did it and in minutes I corrected all the names to Greek. It was the easiest, fastest more accurate work.

I would like to suggest to anyone who wants to make changes on any PDF document to try Infix PDF editor.

A true PDF spell-check – worth the admission price

Just the spell check alone is worth the money.

As far as I know, there is no other PDF application nor plug in can really spell check the actual contents of the PDF, not even Acrobat itself. All others product claims to preform check can only check the “Comments” field.

Some even suggest to go back to the original document file to run spell check there. Which is unpractical as most of us receive PDF file without the access to the original and we need to spell the PDF file.

All the other features in Infix [are] just as good as Acrobat if not better. The “Contents Text Box” works well for extracting text from various part of the document and replace back to same file. Good for contents requiring translation.

A time saver for this type of task if you need to have a few rounds of translation edits.

Antique books restored with PDF editor

Your product is simply wonderful.

We’ve tried most products regarding PDF conversion and editing but none offer the flexibility and ease of use as Infix.

We restore books of antiquity and create new pages without the blemishes, library stamps and the like. Your product makes our job much easier and we are able to produce wonderful replicas of works of beauty restoring books of old.

The additional features regarding tracking revisions and document protection are perfect for our business or any business that wishes to protect their PDF content on-line that has a collaborative workforce working on various aspects of a document.

We especially like the “lightweight” impact on our systems meaning your product loads fast, does not slow down any operating system, and is compatible with office production and work-flow programs.

We highly recommend Infix Pro for small or large projects.
Please consider Infix Pro as your company standard for PDF editing. We did.

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.

Green workplace

Sustainability in the workplace; 6 months on

We wrote back in March about reducing the environmental impact of offices and workplaces, but nearly 6 months on, has this really taken hold? Saving paper, working electronically and buying environmentally friendly paper are all great ideas and sound great in theory, but do they actually work in practice, and have retailers and offices made an effort to reduce their environmental impact?

This also applies to any file, not just text documents.

Google Drive

PDF Functionality within Google Drive

 

Google Drive (previously known as Google Docs) has been through a number of changes and iterations since it went live in 2012, both to design and functionality, including the launch of two Professional Editions, Drive for Work and Drive for Education, in 2014. Comprising of 3 free web-based programs; Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides, these make up Google’s office-suite offering and allow for real-time collaboration and editing with other users that have access to the documents in question. Both desktop and app versions are available, but the app does not allow for download of documents in the same way as desktop; on the app, users can choose to Open files in different programs installed on their devices, and then Save from within those apps. Adobe is one such app, or PDF Reader for Android.

Replacing embedded fonts in PDF

I used Infix PDF editor to fix a problem with font embedding.

The problem was simple – I had a long (250 pages +) ready PDF file compiled of a number of separate shorter PDFs from multiple authors, with multiple fonts used. Part of the fonts were such that I do not have on my computer and such that require a license (non-free fonts). These caused a problem, because I needed all fonts to be embedded in the file, but getting the fonts re-encoded with all fonts embedded was out of the question. At the end of the day I had 6 different fonts to be “taken care of” with hundreds of occurrences all over the long document!

I tried a number of tricks and hacks, but nothing seemed to work, then I found Infix PDF editor that allowed me to _easily_ find and replace the problematic fonts used with non-problematic fonts automatically, with an automated feature of the Infix PDF editor software. After replacement the problematic and unusable file became usable and my problem was resolved very easily.

My situation was in “natural” language in English that is the text was not mathematical characters or the sort – for that circumstance Infix was a perfect tool.
