Power PDF is the smarter value in PDF software. Now there is an alternative to Adobe Acrobat with an intuitive Office based user experience that allows users to work in the same experience they are familiar with, along with an impressive array of features specifically designed to make business users more productive. With Power PDF you get all the tools necessary to annotate, markup, secure and compress PDF plus additional features only available from Nuance for document conversion, search, connectivity and more.
Turn paper into PDF more productively
Create PDF files directly from your scanner with time saving one-click scanning to PDF. Scan to standard image, searchable, or editable PDF formats. Scan and highlight, cross-out or underline—all in a single step.
Create PDF files from any PC application that can print
Instantly create 100% industry-standard PDF files with security options that are fully compliant and compatible with all PDF viewers. You can even add bookmarks and transfer hyperlinks when creating PDF documents from Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Don’t retype your documents
If you must work with PDF documents in other applications, don’t waste valuable time recreating them—convert them. Complex layouts with columns, tables and graphics are faithfully reproduced in Microsoft® Word, Excel®, PowerPoint® and Corel® WordPerfect® documents. You also get exceptional spreadsheet control and features to allow you to combine all pages of a PDF document into a single Excel worksheet to eliminate tedious cutting and pasting. You can even select, copy and convert only the selected areas of text you need from a PDF document.
Combine and assemble documents with ease
Combine files and remove or replace pages with drag and drop ease. View and select pages from a source document—such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, JPG, BMP , TIF, or XPS—to insert into a target document. Just drag and drop the pages add them into the PDF file. Use batch tools to automate repetitive tasks and improve efficiency throughout the workplace.
Produce more professional-looking documents
Deliver documents that look as good in print as they do on screen—no matter where you send or view them. Combine any type of file and/or folder into striking PDF Portfolios—with attractive cover pages that guide your audience—that can be viewed with any popular PDF reader. You can even add pictures, graphics, movies, audio or 3D drawings to PDF documents to communicate your message with attention-grabbing style.
Connect your documents to the Cloud
Now you can save and access your stored documents in the Cloud by connecting directly to Box, Google Drive™, Windows Live® SkyDrive®, Evernote® and Dropbox®. This gives you access to your documents anytime, anywhere through the web or by the applications of supported mobile devices.
Speak your notes
Use integrated Dragon Notes to easily speak and see your text created as notes within your PDF without typing—it’s fast, accurate, saves time and increases productivity.
Collect information with forms
Don’t let the hassle of filling out long forms slow down your business. FormTyperTM automatically converts non-fillable forms into fillable PDF forms that you can complete, save and email. Create forms from scratch using easy to use form drawing tools. Export information in filled in forms so you can sort, search and analyse the data using popular database and spreadsheet file types such as XFDF, XML, TXT and CSV files.
Perform smarter searches
Get the most accurate conversion to searchable PDF available with any PDF solution. Search everything in a document— even the contents of bookmarks and comments—so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Use the intelligent Looks Like SearchTM capability to quickly find content, like phone numbers, email addresses and credit card numbers, via an alphanumeric pattern rather than exact text. Automatically highlight, cross-out or underline search results for faster, easier PDF editing.
Enhance document security
Add passwords with secure 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption and permission controls to PDF files to control document viewing, printing and modifications. Use the advanced redaction capabilities and automatically inspect documents and remove sensitive data for safe, secure document sharing. Authenticate document owners using self-signing, Microsoft Crypto or third-party digital signatures. Or flatten everything in a document, including signatures, stamps, mark-ups, annotations, filled form fields and graphics for enhanced document security. This feature is especially useful for limiting document modification during archiving or e-filing.
