Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) October 6, 2007
Nitro PDF Software (http://www.nitropdf.com), the company that revolutionized the PDF software market with its launch of the world's first true alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®, today announced a major new update to its multiple award-winning Nitro PDF Professional.
The latest 5.3 release comes packed with performance enhancements and brand-new features, and continues the company's mission to make affordable, reliable, and easy-to-use PDF software for business professionals. All current Nitro PDF Professional 5 customers can update their software free of charge from today.
The release extends functionality and improves usability. The creation engine now makes PDF file authoring even faster, the new exporting engine enables users to re-save PDF files into different formats for reuse in Microsoft® Word, WordPerfect, OpenOffice and other applications, and the batch processing engine gains full support for exporting and Bates numbering tasks. New commenting tools and industry-leading image editing tools make it a must-have update. Also new is a comprehensive Getting Started interactive product tutorial.
"For new or inexperienced Nitro PDF Professional users, the new Welcome screen helps you learn about and then complete tasks without ever having used Nitro before," said Sam Chandler, CEO, Nitro PDF Software. "Whether you need to quickly find out how to copy text from a page or start designing a complex, interactive PDF form, the range of Getting Started tutorials guide you from start to finish."
"The behind-the-scenes improvements we've made also help ease the pain business users sometimes experience with the PDFs they receive," said Chandler. "Nitro PDF Professional now comes with built-in support for Chinese, Korean, Japanese (CJK) and Central European (CE) font viewing, copying and editing, and when poorly created PDFs are received, the new auto-repair functionality can fix them on the fly, allowing users to view PDFs that may not open with other PDF viewers. For enterprises the newer, lighter Nitro PDF Professional weighs in at a fraction of the size of Acrobat and it installs in a fraction of the time."
Competitively priced at $99.00 and available now direct, online at http://www.nitropdf.com and from leading retailers and corporate resellers/VARs around the world, Nitro PDF Professional 5.3 gives users full control over PDF documents, including commenting, form-filling, authoring, text editing, advanced document manipulation, PDF-to-Word conversion, one-click creation from Microsoft Office, and more. Another highlight is the all-new "ribbon" GUI. Similar to Microsoft Office 2007's interface, complicated menus and toolbars are replaced with organized tabs and commands relevant to the task at hand. Plus, Nitro PDF Professional fully integrates into Microsoft Office, so there's no need to open another piece of software to create a PDF.
