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


Don’t start from scratch – edit the PDF!

Hello Infix Team,

I recently edited a PDF file and submitted the material back to the university with over 300 corrections. The producer of the article told me it would be quicker for the graphic department to redesign the article than to fix all the corrections, and, because we did not have the original Word file, it posed a great problem for us all.

How to correct the file without going to a complex designer program? With Infix, that’s how! I was delighted to find your software exists, and I was able to download the file and edit it with ease. My whole department is appreciative of the time this has saved us from starting from scratch.

Thank you, Infix, you belong on every editor’s desktop!

Sincerely,

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!

Redacting PDFs – easy and secure with Infix

I just wanted to send off a quick note to you – I am so impressed with your Infix PDF Editor. I am not the most savvy tech person out there, so I think that if I am able to use your product, most anyone out there should be able to do so as well.

I was looking for a program that would allow me to black out text in PDFs. I really don’t have the budget for a higher priced solution at this time, so I was thrilled to learn that you had an option for me.

Previously, I had to pull up PDFs in an image editing program (not Photoshop as that is waaay above my head) and fiddle around with stupid black boxes to cover up the sensitive information. Again, I know that I’m not the smartest when it comes to graphics and all of that, but it was something that I could on my own. Then I read that it would be possible to somehow strip away the boxes I made and see the information underneath? Scared the daylights out of me, to be honest.

I AM pretty good at web searches at least, and I saw your Infix program while looking for a more secure method. It looked to be something that I could handle, so I gave it a try. I was really, really impressed at how easy it was. All I had to do was select the text ( I CAN copy and paste…lol ), then pick redact text I think it was and the sensitive information is covered up. I will have to take you at your word that it can’t be removed to see the information underneath, as I have no way of testing that on my own.

So, a big thanks for making my life a little bit easier and more secure. I highly recommend this program…was very easy to use and really no learning curve at all. Keep up the great work!

Edit: Please be assured, redaction is completley secure in Infix – once blacked-out, there’s no way anyone can reveal the original text or image.


Editing educational PDFs – a user perspective

In my job, I have many documents that I use which need to be altered. I often need to delete text, and objects, to protect identifiable information, I also need to editorialize the documents to explain and educate.

I prefer to use PDF format files. They are easier to work with when I scan and they are universally accepted as a final product. Infix is great, because there are never any issues with the documents looking presentable when someone is using a different program to open the PDF, which is often an issue when using word, google docs or open office to edit the documents.

I use the program in its advanced version, since I’d like to access all the features. It’s still fairly simple to use most features, though, if I’m honest, there’s so many advanced features that I’ve had to refer to the user manual more than once. The user manual is well written, very readable and demonstrates how to achieve the desired effects. So far I’m very happy with Infix.

A pocket review of Infix PDF Editor

Pros:

  • Easy to edit and create PDFs.
  • Lot of functionality.
  • Different editions to suit your tasks and budget.
  • Russian menu.
  • Navigation is clear if you’re familiar with any standard word processing program.
  • Comparably low price.

Cons:

  • Watermark is embedded into saved pages or new files in demo-version.

Extremely handy tool for creating and editing PDF, with OCR, spell checking, CAT-related capabilities and much more. Main menu is similar to word processors’ one, it’s very simple and there’s even no need for detailed downloadable user’s manual. This software is that an impressive as there almost no full-featured free PDF editors right now, most of them are shareware with strict limitations

If you simply need to create PDF you can use a wide variety of programs, but in most cases you can’t directly edit the result afterwards, or you have nothing to do but print PDFs you got. Or, suppose, you received some questionnaire in PDF and don’t want to print it out, then fill it in, then scan it into, then… In such a cases the Infix PDF Editor is indispensable, and even unregistered version will not apply a watermark when working in form-filling mode!

Editing label templates in PDF using Infix PDF Editor – a success story!

I am disabled, so to earn a bit of extra money, I design logos and labels for products that regular people sell.
I normally buy my labels from a specific company which I will not mention here. They provide templates for their labels in different formats and the only two I was familiar with were .doc and .pdf. I tried the .doc templates only to find out that the real template settings sometimes extended to 4 digits and Word can only handle 2 and it rounds up or down apparently randomly so by using that type of template, the labels always printed off the label.

I decided to try the .pdf templates and tried many different programs including Adobe Illustrator at a friend’s house. I spent 3 days (overstaying my welcome using his computer by quite a lot his son finally told me) and the learning curve to use Illustrator was just too much for me.

I finally found Infix PDF Editor. The tool-bar was laid out logically and the images describing what tool was what were very familiar to me. To say that Infix PDF Editor is user-friendly is a severe understatement.

I loaded up the .pdf template and Infix told me that this .pdf file might not be editable due to some reason I don’t remember, but there was a button to click to fix the issue so I clicked it and POOF, problem solved. I then easily found how to add an image to the .pdf template, and again, POOF, there was my image. It happened to be too large to fit into the templates so I chose the familiarly labelled Object tool which had a handy pop-up that informed me that I had chosen the tool to select, resize, or move objects. Once that tool had been chosen, my image now had the familiar ‘grab’ squares at the corners and centre of sides of my image. Within seconds, I had resized my image to fit into the label selection circle (I was using a 2 inch round label). At that point, it was a simple matter of copying and pasting my image into the following label selection circles.

With Infix PDF Editor, in less than 5 minutes, I was able to accomplish what I had been trying to do with a multitude of other programs for about 2 weeks.

I would highly recommend purchasing Infix PDF Editor especially since all the free ones I tried either had the same issue with rounding off label spacings or were just too difficult to learn to use in the time I had to get my order printed and out to the customer. The non-free programs I tried were essentially the same, the learning curve was just too long, or the program was so limited that I could not even do what I needed to do to even evaluate the software. If you get Infix PDF Editor, you will not be disappointed.
