PDF-XChange Editor - Download Notes

Please note that, in order to keep the size of the installer files as small as possible, the PDF-XChange Editor manual comes as a separate download from the product installer. The PDF-XChange Editor manual is available at the following links:

PDF-XChange Editor can be used to create new PDF files from third-party document formats such as MS Office, images files, plain text (*.txt) and many more. If you want to convert documents of these formats into PDF format then simply open them in PDF-XChange Editor and they will convert automatically. If you want to create PDF files from other Windows applications that can print to paper, then you should use the PDF-XChange Lite virtual printer that is included with PDF-XChange Editor. You can also use PDF-XChange Editor to convert scanned paper documents into PDF format, and to view, edit and annotate PDF documents.

If you are unsure of which download is applicable to you, then you should use the zip installer as it will identify the version of Windows that you are using and download the correct installer for you. Note that this installer is a .exe file wrapped in a zip file, which is a necessary step as some download management software blocks .exe files. Alternatively, you can use the .msi installer - but in that case it is necessary to download and install the correct version for your operating system.
