PDF-XChange Viewer is a free, downloadable, PDF reader for Microsoft Windows developed by Tracker Software Products. It is essential in our modern times to possess the ability to read PDF documents. Thankfully, we have access to a program that completes simple functions, like allowing PDF’s to be viewed, to more complex tasks. PDF-XChange Viewer is a necessary program to own.
PDF-XChange Viewer is touted as containing more features and being smaller and faster than any other program of its kind. This software turns the owner into an artist, allowing the ability to actually construct their own original PDF document. Created documents can also be emailed directly from the program. Users are able to create PDF files directly from any image file or scanner. The program is also able to convert other files types, such as .rtf and .txt, into a PDF. Miraculously the software is able to export to an image, allowing the user to save a PDF as a digital picture in 15 supported formats, such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, TGA, BMP and GIF. An impressive feature allows users to OCR image based PDF’s enabling the ability to make text searchable for the PDF file.
The user interface is customizable, allowing you to choose only the tools desired to be displayed. This not only reduces clutter, but eliminates the need to search through unused items to find the one you actually want. The option to customize is located in the Tools drop-down menu. Other features located in that menu include markup and comment tools, zoom tools and measuring tools. Located in the Settings menu are handy tools such as rendering, forms, file associations, security and search providers, snapshots, performance, identity, commenting and page display.
The user inter face is tabbed, similar to an internet browsing session, with the ability to have several documents open in the same window simultaneously. Type directly onto your PDF documents in Typewriter mode. Large documents are easily searched with the use of Pan and Loupe Window tools, making document navigation a snap.
