Munich, Germany (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
The whole world is becoming digital. Documents are no longer distributed on paper, but sent on their way electronically. To eliminate compatibility issues between the sender and the recipient, the PDF format was devised. Any type of file that uses this format can be opened, read or printed from any computer, but cannot modified.
This is where PDF Annotator comes in, to put an end to a forced passivity where dealing with PDF files is concerned. In the words of developer Oliver Grahl: "Users can process PDF's as if they were documents lying on a table in front of them. They can use any white space to insert comments, and they can point out important sections by underlining or highlighting them or correct mistakes by crossing words out." Whenever a document is presented in PDF form, PDF Annotator is the tool of choice when it comes to searching text, collaboration, or editing.
The software was first made available to users of Tablet PC's and graphics tablets in order to let them make corrections in place using a stylus.
PDF Annotator Version 1.5 has just been released. This means that PDF Annotator can now run on any desktop PC -- a request made by many users who wanted to be able to use this clever program on their office PC.
PDF Annotator 1.5: Just start typing
Now you can just type in corrections anywhere using your keyboard. This makes it possible to thoroughly comment a document without having to do it by hand. Just click any spot, and start typing. The text that you enter becomes part of the document, but you can also use PDF Annotator at a later time to change what you've added. Once you've made all your changes, you can integrate all of your comments into the document with a single click. But that's not all: the new version contains many interesting new features.
For example, you'll find that Version 1.5 lets you add images and photos to a PDF. Text and images can be brought into a PDF through the clipboard. You can also add any number of drawings to a PDF and mark up text. Version 1.5 gives users a palette of customizable drawing tools. Of course, PDF Annotator 1.5 is ready for Vista.
According to Oliver Grahl: "The most notable enhancement in PDF Annotator 1.5 is clearly the ability to enter text through the keyboard. This makes PDF Annotator available for use on any desktop PC. Our customers are always telling us that PDF Annotator is one of the few essential tools that they use every day."
