Portable Document Format (PDF) is currently establishing itself as the most widespread and commonly-used format in both the online and offline world. It's used in almost every sphere of life and alternative formats are becoming obsolete. If you want to keep up with the pack then you need a method to edit and update your existing files - not to mention create new ones. PDF-Tools is the method for you. It's the only software you need for the creation and manipulation of PDF and image files. It can be used to convert files of almost any format to/from PDF, as well as perform a huge range of additional editing options. This is one of the most advanced and customizable PDF applications available worldwide – a dynamic and user-friendly solution for all your PDF needs. PDF-Tools is compatible with large PDF files and can also handle a huge number of files simultaneously – batch conversion is its strength.

Tracker Software is proud to announce that version seven of PDF-Tools was released on 01/12/2017. The latest build includes nineteen new tools and thirteen new actions in the Actions Library. There are several new features, such as the Watch Folders feature, which monitors folders and performs tool operations on files moved into them, and the Tool Report feature, which provides a step-by-step breakdown of tool operations - and a host of additional new functionality and improvements,. This includes the input files recall, which remembers the files used for tool operations in order to speed up the process when the same group of files is used with many tool operations, expanded OCR options and support of MRC (Mixed Raster Content) and TWAIN 32-bit scanners in 64-bit environments. Please see below for an extensive list of all available features and functionality. 

There are fifty-one Default Tools that can be used to convert, enhance and customize documents/document pages, as well as functionality to clone and edit these tools and their variables as you desire. Use the Actions Library to fully customize your tools and the Tool Actions Sequence to determine the order in which they perform operations. Combine fifty-five available actions to create your own tools - out of billions of possibilities.

No plugins required – just download, install and launch. All features are fully operational in the free version but they will create watermarks when files are converted. Please see below for an extensive list of available features and functionality.

* Note: Though many users have virtualized some of our component products such as the PDF-XChange Viewer and PDF-Tools application using XenApp, we do not support this at this time. Particularly the printer drivers are not designed to work in a virtualized environment.

** Limitations to product support for Windows XP

To experience the best performance of our products on all Windows operating systems, the onus is on users to ensure that they have all the latest available Microsoft Windows Service Packs & Updates installed.

Please feel free to try any, or all, of our evaluation version; none have any kind of time limitation or restrictions to their respective feature-sets. The only caveat is that that any documents converted to a PDF will contain a demo stamp/watermark. (see below)

Should you decide to purchase the product in question, all new content is created without this watermark and your pages will be free and clear of such an evaluation image.

We guarantee that none of our evaluation products require registration, nor do they contain Spyware, Adware or any other invasive content. Each product allows you to easily uninstall at any time from the Windows Control panel - 'Add/Remove software' option!

    Ottimo per salvare e modificare file pdf

    With pdf-tools you don't need an expensive duplex scanner! All you need to do is scan the odd pages into a single pdf, flip the pages over and then scan the even pages into a single pdf (the order is backwards but read on). Then with pdf-tools (split/merge), reverse the order of the pdf with the even pages, split the odd page pdf to separate pages using a, split the even pages to separate pages using b and then merge these - in alphabetical order - into a single document. I love it. It takes me all of 45 seconds. Fantastic.

    Thank you for your prompt help installing. The information you sent to me was very helpful. I believe that I was trying to run the software before 1st saving it. PDF tools is now working correctly and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me with this application. Again, thank you very much. Have a wonderful new year.
