May 30, 2013 in Software
[prMac.com] Parede, Portugal - SintraWorks has announced the release of PDF Nomad 2.0, an update to their easy-to-use, carefully crafted PDF Editor, made especially for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and up.
Antonio Nunes, Founder and Director of SintraWorks, said, "This latest version of PDF Nomad sets another milestone for our powerful yet efficient PDF editor. Let alone the other new features and enhancements, it is quite significant to have another OCR capable app for Mac!"
PDF Nomad 2 allows users to scan sources directly into PDF documents, and perform OCR to extract text and/or make the documents searchable. It will even OCR 'ordinary' PDF documents to recover text, if trying to copy text from those documents produces garbage. (It happens!)
You can now automatically deskew pages with single command. (Especially useful for scanned documents.) The all-new bookmarks feature allows users to manage a Bookmarks menu with links to their favourite documents, so that they can have an ordered quick-access reference library. PDF Nomad 2 introduces extensive AppleScript support. Automate your workflow through the many options provided by the extensive scripting dictionary.
Easily resize whole documents to a different page size with a single command, or resize individual pages with drag and drop, shifting page contents as needed.
Export individual pages as bitmaps (jpg, png etc.) or create spoken audio files from the document's text. Split documents into even/odd pages, or explode documents into single page PDFs. Merge pages side by side or on top of each other. Split pages in half or tile them to print them onto multiple pages to be assembled into posters. Merge documents, interleave documents and even overlay documents on top of each other. Create and fill out PDF forms. Markup text and annotate pages with rectangles, ovals, arrows, lines and more.
