  1. Using OCR

    I often scan documents that have both typed text and handwritten text. When performing OCR, the previous version of PDF element would not change the look of the handwritten text so I could still read it in the OCRed document. Now it displays the output of trying to perform OCR on the handwritten text - a bunch of random characters - so that the text is no longer readable in the ORCed document. I now need the refer to 2 documents. Any way of changing this? I couldn't find anything in the preferences. Thanks, Ric
  2. Optimize PDF

    When your PDF file size is too large to be sent or uploaded, you can use the Optimize function in PDFelement 6 Professional to get a smaller PDF file. 1. Windows version After opening your PDF document in the program, please click the File>Optimize button to select the DPI as you want to optimize directly. If you click the Custom option, you can customize the DPI as you want directly. 2. Mac version After opening your PDF file in the program, please click the File>Save As Other>Optimize PDF button on the top menu, in the pop up window, select the DPI as you want to optimize.
  3. Hi - I'm new to PDF Elements and recently purchased PDFElement 6 Pro for Mac OS. It's a very clear and intuitive interface - thanks for that. I've created my first form with fields that the user will complete. I have added default values for some of the form fields but not all (e.g. senders address field has default values present). When I inspect the form within PDFElement it looks fine. However, when it's used and opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader with the intention of completing the form and sending it onwards, all fields appear empty. I'm aware that I'm new to the application and mindful that it might be me doing something incorrectly but I've checked and been through the Community here. I wondered if anyone had any suggestions? Thanks very much for any ideas anyone might have. Steve
  4. I don't see where PDF Element 6 Pro allows one to choose the font size in a form field. The article at URL http://smallbusiness.chron.com/change-font-size-pdf-form-field-46427.html discusses doing this. Am I overlooking something?
  5. If you have a PDF that has the same text on every single page and need to remove it, then you can use the "Find and Replace" function to meet your needs instead of removing each text page by page manually. After opening your PDF file in the program, click the Ctrl+F keys to open the find box, then enter the keyword that you want to remove, click the Replace With button, and do not need to enter any new word to replace. You just need to click the Replace button, it will find out the key word, and replace it with a blank space. In this way, it will help you remove the keyword as you want. 1. Windows version: 2. Mac version: In the Mac version program, please click the Comment+F keys to open the Find and Replace window. And do the same above steps to find the keyword and replace with a blank space.

  8. PDFElement "de-registered"

    El Capitan OSX 10.11.6 I have PDFelement 5.6, and use it quite often. I see PDFelement 6 is out and wanted to upgrade. I noticed that I had not put my PDFelement serial number in my serials flle and so went to Help/Register, where I could see my registration email (xmarc999@comcast.net) and a Registration Code. I double clicked on the Registration Code intending to copy it. It disappeared, along with my registration email! Now the product appears as unregistered. 1) Is there a pref file or something I can restore to recover the Registration Code? I have full Time Machine backups. 2) Is it possible to upgrade to PDFelement 6? Thank you, Marc P.S. I do use this a lot and the watermark makes the output unusable. Thanks for any help.

    Your product, PDF-Element looks like a nice product. However, your advertising in the Apple Store and on your website is misleading. First, your Apple Store application says it is FREE. There is NO indication that an in-app purchase is required. Thus, after almost one hour downloading and installing this app on my at-home [slow] network, spending another hour creating a document I ATTEMPT TO SAVE IT AND YOU SPLASH YOUR MASSIVE WATERMARK ACROSS EVERY PAGE OF MY WORK. NOW, FOR THE FIRST TIME, I LEARN THAT THIS IS ONLY A "TRIAL" VERSION AND THAT IN IRDER TO REMOVE THE WATERMARK, I HAVE TO SPEND $99 TO PURCHASE YOUR SOFTWARE. THIS MAKES ME FURIOUS. PEOPLE HATE FEELING TRICKED!!!!!!.
  10. When you create a text field for others to fill with some special format of numbers, you can use our program PDFelement 6 Professional to set the special format as you want. 1. After clicking the Form>Text Field button to add the text field, please double click it to open the Properties window. 2. In the Format tab, you can chooses a number category as you want. 3. If you choose Special, then you will get more types: Zip Code For a five-digit U.S. postal code. Zip Code + 4 For a nine-digit U.S. postal code. Phone Number For a ten-digit telephone number. Social Security Number For a nine-digit U.S. Social Security Number. Hyphens are inserted automatically after the third and fifth digits. Arbitrary Mask Changes the format category to Custom and makes another text field available, in which you can type a custom format. Use this option to specify which types of characters the user can enter in any given position, and how the data displays in the field. A Accepts only letters (A–Z, a-z). X Accepts spaces and most printable characters, including all characters available on a standard keyboard and ANSI characters in the ranges of 32–126 and 128–255. O The letter “O” accepts alphanumeric characters (A–Z, a-z, and 0–9). 9 Accepts only numeric characters (0–9). For example, a mask setting of AAA--p#999 accepts the input BOE--p#767. A mask setting of OOOOO@XXX accepts the input vad12@3Up.

If you have a PDF file with multiple pages, PDFelement 6 not only supports to help you convert PDF files to Excel files, but also allows you to decide to convert all pages into a single excel sheet or convert each page into a single excel sheet as you want to manipulate the data. There are two methods to set the choice when you convert by the Windows version program. Method 1. After opening your PDF file in the program, click the Home>To Others>Convert to Excel button to convert. Then in the pop up window, click the Setting button to choose the option as you want. Method 2. After opening the PDF file in the program, click the File>Preferences button, in the Convert>Excel tab, choose the option as you want to convert.

    The Optimize entry does not appear on my PDF Element 6 Pro for Mac. It was there a couple of weeks ago, I got it specifically for that, but now it does not appear. Is there any dependency on file content or something like that? Thanks!

  20. Keys

    Hello, I've been using PDF Element for a while. My laptop was stolen and I'm trying to activate the software on my new laptop. I realize I should have saved the keys in multiple places. I purchased keys for 3 devices. I tried to retrieve the registration via the support center. However, when I enter my email and then click submit, the page doesn't load anything else. I attached a screen shot without my email address to show where on the support center this is referenced. Also, I have two tickets on my login account showing me interacting with customer support when I purchase the software back in 2016. There's evidence that I purchased the software fortunately. Please let me know how to best resolve this issue and obtain access to the purchased software. Thanks in advance!

  22. One of PDFelement's most practical features is its ability to convert a PDF document (or several) into an Excel file. This saves countless hours of having to retype and recreate spreadsheets. But you may need to adjust a setting or two to get the most out of this feature and reduce the amount of spreadsheet formatting required after conversion. Start by loading up a PDF and click To Others on the Home Tab, then Convert to Excel. Choose your file output destination, then click Settings. Here’s where the magic happens! Try adjusting the different options of the top four settings. Enabling or disabling the “Retain Values without formatting” option can make a big difference in the appearance of your converted file. Also, enabling the “Combine all pages into a single Excel sheet” option can reduce the amount of time you spend copying and pasting data from one part of your spread sheet to another. The same settings apply if you are batch converting PDF files into Excel. Just click on the wheel and adjust your settings. Happy converting!

  24. Working on MAC Sierra, Version 6.10 I'm having the same problem as others from this community post, how to make the "interactive fillable" forms From PDF element function as regular PDF. I think I'm doing the adding of text, text fields and check boxes and radio buttons but they don't seem to work on PDFs or when exported as PDFS the pages are blank.or optimized to shrink the file size the interactivity doesn't work. Are there better tutorials, manuals or online descriptions of the "PDF form" creation process? Reviewed the existing materials is marginal.
