[prMac.com] Interactive PDF forms are not something you create every day, which means that the corresponding software has to be very intuitive and easy to use on-the-fly. The latest version, pdf-Office Professional 6.0, from Germany's UNIVERSE Software has improved, simplified handling, and still boasts a variety of new functions.
The easy and fast way to a complete form
Images and drawings can now not only be imported from all common graphic formats, but also created directly in the software itself. This functionality offers users an ideal way of extending existing templates to interactive PDF forms, if not already completely created using pdf-Office Professional.
Simply draw your own graphics
The integrated drawing function gives you a range of possibilities in drawing lines, circles, rectangles, cubes, ellipses and so on. You can fill and colour them, using pdf-Office like a graphics program. The drawings can be applied to imported images, giving you a fast and convenient way of emphasising, marking or otherwise graphically enhancing your visuals.
Integrated document security giving you up to 128 bit AES encryption will always ensure that the users can only ever fill out the form fields as intended. The forms themselves always remain completely tamper-proof and therefore authentic.
Other improvements affect the redesigned user interface to make using the program even simpler, along with more effective form field handling and improved field copying and alignment as well as optional letter-spacing in field text, where the text alignment automatically adjusts to the length of the field.
The program is available for Windows 95 and later, MacOSX and Linux, and costs $133.00. UNIVERSE Software has kept to its usual practice of including updates and upgrades in the price. A free test version is available for download at www.pdf-office.com.
