If you work at a computer a lot, PDFs are a part of daily life. It makes sense — PDFs are reliable and look great on a wide range of devices, making them ideal for a huge number of uses. But since the text, images and other information comes baked into the document, not unlike a printed page, doing anything but reading a PDF can be tricky.
The latest version of PDFelement includes a range of tools and tech that make any PDF so easy to alter, it’s as if you got your mitts on the source document. That means working with PDFs as though they were Word documents, with every element made fully editable.
PDFelement 6 can do this thanks to its powerful set of form- and character-recognition tools, which give you the ability to bend PDFs to your will.
PDFelement 6 features
Easily create fillable PDF forms
One cool feature is the ability to create fully functional PDFs out of a range of other document formats.
Say you want to create a PDF form to be filled out in an office survey. Just lay out the document in an application you’re familiar with, like Word or Excel. Then, load it in PDFelement 6, select the form tool from the menu bar at the top, and trace the fillable areas for your survey.
Then just export, and you’ve got an interactive PDF complete with all the original formatting, fonts and images.
Export form data into Excel instantly
PDFelement 6 also includes a new intelligent form-automation system. That means you can scan and extract key information from any PDF document, and dump it straight into an Excel sheet. It takes just seconds and you won’t need to know a thing about coding.
Also, using optical character recognition (OCR), PDFelement 6 can automatically read mountains of documents and transmit them into a variety of Office formats.
Smarter, faster text editing
Using PDFelement 6 is basically like turning a PDF into a Word document, an experience that feels seamless but which rests on a lot of technological wizardry.
On the user end, though, it brings the benefit of an editing experience that feels quite familiar. Alter, add or subtract text, change fonts and formatting, add or crop images — the software learns every detail of the PDF so you can make changes as you see fit.
All this functionality flows from the software’s ability to “see” everything baked into the PDF, then un-bake those elements so they can be changed.
This translates into a much faster workflow in any digital workplace. PDFelement 6 was designed to fit in aesthetically with Windows, but is built for Mac as well.
If you’d like to know what it feels like to possess these sorts of document superpowers, you can try PDFelement 6 for free. If you ever get stuck, you can take advantage of hundreds of YouTube videos for help (as well as user guides and a bunch of community forums). People really seem to dig this software. But then what would you expect from a powerful app that turns PDFs into putty in your hands?
