pdfEdit995


PdfEdit995 is part of the Pdf995 Suite of products. As a group, they offer a complete solution for your document publishing needs, providing ease of use, flexibility in format, and industry-standard security. And all at no cost to you.

Pdf995 is the fast, affordable way to create professional-quality documents in the popular PDF file format. Combined with pdfEdit995, it offers the following features:

  1. Create links.

  2. Bookmark pages.

  3. Automatically attach a PDF to an email message for sending. (This requires that a default MAPI compliant email client such as Microsoft Outlook is specified.)

  4. Combine multiple (2 or more) documents into a single PDF document. This can be used to create PDF documents from multiple applications, such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and even other PDF documents.

  5. Web View. Optimize PDF documents if you plan to post them on web servers that support bit streaming. This may increase PDF file size.
    Compress Existing PDF - This tool will apply compression to reduce file size of a PDF. The new PDF may not be viewable in older PDF viewers.

  6. Rotate page orientation by 90 degrees, resulting in a "landscape" orientation. This is particularly useful when printing PowerPoint presentations and Excel charts.

  7. Create stationery: create letterhead, an embossing, or backgrounds for PDF documents.

  8. Include pdf995 and pdfEdit buttons in the Microsoft Word toolbar. Facilitates automatic transfer of links and Table of Contents to PDF.

  9. Autoname provides 3 options-
    a. Name and specify location of the PDF document using the "Save As" dialog (default).
    b. Automatically name the document based on the originating document and save it in the pdf995\output folder.
    c. Save all PDF documents to the same filename. When this is selected the user is prompted to specify a PDF filename. This can be helpful when pdf995 is incorporated into automated workflow systems.

  10. Embed fonts.
