PDF-XChange - 64 bit Windows ** Free** upgrade

PDF-XChange Version 3.5093 now includes 64 bit Windows Drivers released as a 'Gold' product for both End Users and Software Developers.

This a free upgrade/addition for all our licensed users.

Please note that whilst we have included the 64 bit drivers in the default download for Software Developers 'Client Installer' - there are separate downloads for our 32 (Windows 95 thru to Windows XP) and 64 Bit Windows End User installations (Windows XP64/Vista) in recognition that this adds size to the download file and will not be required as frequently (for now) as it will be by most Software Developers using our products.

Tracker PDF Viewer Announced - have your say !

We are pleased to announce the development of a rival to Adobe's Reader to view Acrobat PDF files.

Aware of a growing dissatisfaction from both general PC users and Software Developers alike with the latter versions of Adobe's own Acrobat PDF Reader, Tracker Software have announced 2 new Reader applications will be released in the late Spring with a 3rd due out later this year.

The first release will be a freely available Reader for general purpose viewing of PDF files with all the major functionality available in Adobe's reader, with some unique features and functions too to set it apart.

Combating the frustrating file opening times of Adobe's Reader and ensuring the viewer is not resource hungry will be key features - as will ease of use and the avoidance of bloated irrelevant features - however - this will still be a fully featured Reader, capable of all the essential functionality.

The 2nd of the initial products released will be aimed at Software Developers and provide a comprehensive means to incorporate within a developers software applications, the viewing and printing of PDF files - at an affordable price.

Both general users and software developers are invited to offer their opinions as to what features and functions are important to them, in a new topic area on our User's support forums - you must fill in the simple registration form to view and post

New feature: Add-in for MS Office Users

PDF-XChange Version 3.4065 and later, (both Standard and Pro versions) has benefited from a useful new feature Add-in for MS Office Users.

Now if you select the optional MS Office Add-in when installing and have Office 97 or later Toolbar buttons will be added for PDF Creation, Bookmarks/Hyperlinks Selection based on Office styles and Settings - as well as a general settings button to allow you to control most of the PDF-XChange printer drivers options and variations.

Create clickable table of contents links embed URL hyperlinks in your documents - i.e. text such as 'Click Here' can have an embedded Internet or Email link.

This includes unrivalled compression and optimisation when converting your documents to PDF, in recent independent tests PDF-XChange converted users CAD files to PDF and the resulting file was up to 90% smaller than our nearest rivals - including Adobes own conversion tools!

As always this upgrade is provided free to existing Version license owners. To evaluate PDF-XChange Version 3 please click here.

Note: The above feature is not available in PDF-XChange 'Lite'
