Create interactive PDF forms with Infix PDF Editor

The latest update to Infix adds a set of new tools and functionality to enable creation of interactive forms with buttons, check-boxes, lists and other useful widgets. As well as creating your own, you can also edit forms created by other people in other applications and import/export data to and from forms in standard XML format.

To start using the forms tools, make the new toolbar visible by choosing: View->Toolbars->Form Editing. To help you get the best layout when designing your forms we recommend showing the grid, enabling snap-to-grid and guides. That way you can ensure all your form elements line-up nicely.

If you have an active license or subscription to Infix, just let it update itself or download and install the latest demo. If your license has expired you won’t be able to get the new facility, sorry.


Coloured Pencils

Find and Replace Colours In PDF

Whatever software they use to create, graphic designers more often than not save their finished products as PDFs.

File compression, image preservation and, of course, straightforward mobility make PDF an ideal format for sharing and distributing posters, display adverts, newsletters, booklets, brochures and so on.

But say the PDF file arrives with a client and the colour shade on the company logo is not quite right. Or a printer spots a discrepancy in colour over a couple of pages. Do you have to take the time to send it back to the designer?

Or what about the general office user who wants to use existing PDF files as a template for a company newsletter, but would like to change the colour scheme around a little?

Just a few clicks

Infix PDF Editor 7 makes it really easy to change colours anywhere in a PDF document. Background fill, shapes, text, graphics – all can be altered with a few clicks of the mouse.

Simply use the Object Tool to select an area, click on the Colour Picker, and you are away.

Infix 7 lets you choose entirely new colour schemes from the inbuilt palette, or you can use the Swatches tool to pick colours from within a document. This is great for matching up shades accurately.

Most conveniently at all, you can change colour schemes throughout a document with a single click. When you select an object and open the colour options, you can use Change All to find other places where the same colour is used, and change these too.

You can even decide whether you want to change fill or stroke (line) colours only, or graphics or text, or all of them.

This provides a fantastic flexibility for tweaking colour schemes straight in a PDF document, without having to go back to source on expensive graphic design software.

Translate scanned PDFs with TransPDF

We all know TransPDF makes the job of translating PDFs faster and easier than it’s ever been. If only it could handle our scanned PDFs, it’d be so much better…

Well now it can!

We’ve added automatic conversion (OCR) of scanned PDFs to make them fully editable and translatable. Simply upload your PDF to TransPDF and you’ll get beautifully clean XLIFF in return.

There’s no additional charge for the service but we do deduct your final-PDF fee at the start of the process rather than at the end like normal, even for users with a valid Infix license.

Try it now, it’s fab!

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.

“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.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop

As a 50+ techie dinosaur who struggles to keep up with 10 year olds I find your PDF editor really easy to use.

I work in Education with vulnerable pupils in different establishments who have the concentration span of a newt and an aversion to most things pen and paper.

Having invested years in preparing antiquated sheets I am not yet ready to let them go and the newts are not yet ready to manage without them.

We now combine their love of tech with my love of antique. We work on a laptop with the same enthusiasm that I experienced with pen and paper all those years ago. We fill in prepared sheets and comment on all sorts of things.

I am not yet able to show colleagues how wonderful your product is because I use my own laptop and work uses other software. Ease of use and price normally persuades bosses and I’d love to try. A free licence would impress them enough to allow an install on my equally antiquated laptop and an expansion of users on the ‘Monkey see Monkey do’ principle.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop. Win Win.

Editing PDF Landscape Plans with Infix

Ok, I’m writing this because want the free licence, and I do like the software. I’d not bother otherwise.

Why’s that? Because this is the first pdf editor which I tried that did exactly what I wanted in under 2 minutes, without me having any prior experience with it at all. That was after spending a good few hours looking for and trying various different pdf editors from all over the web. How frustrating!

Search & replace through hundreds of PDFs

I tried several PDF editors before giving Infix PDF Editor a try, and I’ll never have to try another! I even have Adobe Acrobat Pro, which I assumed would cover all of my PDF needs, but it’s glaring lack of a single feature which I assumed would be available, and commonly required by many users, sent me searching for a better PDF solution.

I had a batch of hundreds of documents, all of which were titled with our university department’s name. When the department consolidated and changed it’s official name, I needed to perform a simple search and replace from the old name to the new, on all the documents. This is a simple batch procedure, and I was amazed that Acrobat Pro did NOT have this capability. It seemed so obvious I was tempted to ask Adobe for my money back! After seeing positive reviews for Infix PDF Editor online, I downloaded the trial version and was blown away! The interface is incredibly intuitive. Without reading any documentation, it took me about 2 minutes to figure out how to set up my batch find and replace, and the whole job executed within minutes. The replaced text flawlessly adopted the font style and size of the original text, and flowed perfectly.

Sorry Adobe, I paid for your product and it came up short. Infix PDF Editor is the ticket!
