Text documents are usually to compose and edit, but it’s not the same when handling PDF files. These are preferred for their level of security, and possibility to hold different types of content. In this regard, PDF-XChange Editor comes as a powerful PDF editor which bundles a variety of features to work on existing documents and save with new changes.
File support and view options
Files first need to be loaded to be able to use any features. On the bright side of things, the application supports an impressive variety of formats besides PDF, such as XMP, BMP, GIF, ICO, JBG, PBM, PGM, TGA, PCX, DCX, PNG, JPG, TIFF, EMF, RTF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, PPT, TXT, and a few more. Each document you open is at a mouse click away in its own tab.
View options make it possible to adjust page display for a more comfortable experience, with options for single or continuous pages. Thumbnails can be enabled for preview, rotation is included, zoom helps analyze details, while the ruler makes it easy to measure specific elements or better align objects inside the document.
Content editing and exporting
Document content benefits from a decent array of manipulation tools. It’s possible to extract multiple pages, and even have them replaced. Furthermore, you can limit editing to content itself, with options to insert and select text, add pictures, barcode, or draw directly on the page using dedicated brush tools and shapes.
In case you’re working with freshly-scanned paces, the OCR component attempts to translate readable text, which you can then fine-tune with the built-in spell check tool. You can take snapshots of the documents and save as pictures, and measure perimeter, distance, or area.
Export possibilities aren’t that abundant, but make it possible to generate a new PDF, or even PPT file with all changes you make. Additionally, documents can be sent via email, or saved to SharePoint servers, or cloud services like Dropbox or Google Drive.
To sum it up, PDF-XChange Editor is sure to suit most PDF document manipulation needs. Although it’s packed with a great variety of features, these are neatly organized across the interface, making accommodation easy for individuals of all levels of experience. File support is impressive, while saving can also be done to your preferred cloud service.
