pdfforge GmbH is known for its free PDFCreator, which is installed by more than 25 million users per year. The main office is located in Hamburg, Germany, where PDFCreator is developed, tested and maintained. The company was founded back in 2009 as pdfforge GbR by Philip Chinery and Frank Heindörfer and was converted to a GmbH in 2013. In 2012, pdfforge introduced the full-featured Editor PDF Architect.
PDF Architect 8 shines with a completely new and redesigned user-interface. Editing your PDFs will be more intuitive, quicker, and easier. Discover what’s new and take a look at some of the most important changes in our short summary below.
More intuitive and easier navigation
To give you a much more intuitive experience when you edit your PDF files, a lot of the features have been moved or renamed. Some features have been combined to make it easier and quicker for you to navigate straight to the functions you are looking for.
Many Edit and Comment features are now available via a dynamic toolbar that appears once an element is selected and provides easier access to related properties. Three newly added keyboard shortcuts will help you to jump to the next pages of a single document or if multiple documents are open you can cycle through them one at a time.
Speed things up by doing multiple things at once
PDF Architect will make completing tasks as simple as possible for you. Quick Search is moved from the bottom of the screen to the top. All panels now provide a + icon in order to access their context menu options.
Basic tasks like ‘Add Comments’ or ‘Protect your PDF’ now have more default options on the home screen. At the same time, the Quick Access Menu on the upper top left of the screen now includes the option ‘Send by e-mail’.
The page module has a new interactive graphical interface allowing users to preview all pages in a document at once. Document pages can be moved via drag and drop or get selected in order to facilitate page functions such as Extract or Replace.
More batch-processing can be done with the Batch Compress feature, which has been added to the Batch module enabling users to reduce the file size for multiple documents at once. In addition, PDF Architect’s Duplicate feature in the dynamic toolbar, facilitates the reuse of content. It duplicate copies and pastes the selected object onto the same page, enabling users to re-create intricate objects with specific sizes, colors, and formatting
E-Sign and OCR features improved
Lastly, our two most popular features, E-Sign and Optical Character Recognition (OCR), have both been improved.
The E-Sign interface has been completely revamped with streamlined options and a floating panel to quickly place signatures, initials, and forms onto a page. E-Sign’s Advanced Send features are now available under Request Signature while Quick Send features are available from Sign your Document.
OCR comes with a new engine, offers an improved usability, and a simplified workflow, as some less important options have been removed to help you focus on the strengths of this feature. A big difference is that in addition to recognizing text, the new engine can restore a structured document. That saves you a lot of time because you get presented with an editable file instead of having to rebuild and restructure the whole document yourself.
