  1. Set Special Code for Numbers

    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.
  2. Poor Signature Module

    Hello. I am on the road often and the Electronic or Digital Signature portion is important for me to return signed documents while on the road. The Mac app is pretty good but lags behind in one key element for me. The "signature module" of the app for creating or modifying electronic representations of your signature is very cumbersome and hard to use. I tried all the different options to try and get a good representation of my signature to keep on file but I was not able to achieve a credible one. Tried the photo and the file options but it just copies a photo that is very hard to place on a document. Used the mouse/keypad with a special stylus and after about 20 tries I gave up. I reference, I also have the PDFExpert app and although PDF Elements has more features, the "Signature Module" or feature of this app is far superior and I could achieve very good results and document placements for my electronic signature
  3. I want to use pre-filled default values in the form. I need several lines. If I use "multiple lines" or "scrolling with long text" I see nothing in the form. I then have to click in each box after the automatic pre-fills to see the text, the multiple lines I can only use if I write at least 1 letter in addition. But I do not want to click through the form, it should be filled immediately with the record. Is this problem known? Single line boxes work. If I use an other product (not Adobe) it works. But as I paid for this program I want to make it work either. Can you help? In this sheet there are 4 forms, in the beginning you only see one. But if I tab all forms and add 1 letter or number, the other 2 (multiple line forms) appear. See the screen shots please. I tried different documents.
  4. Print Notes

    Is there a way to print notes? In Preview for OSX you can click in the print dialogue "show notes" and then the sticky style note print on the left side margin of the page. You can also save a pdf with the markup showing. Is there a way to do this?
  5. Preserve Aspect Ratio of Phot

    I am evaluating PDFElement as a solution for inserting image files into PDFs. So far I like what I am seeing. However, I am having trouble preserving the aspect ratio of photos when I add them. The documentation says I should hold shift key while adjusting the size, but that does not work for me. Instead, what happens is either: 1. If I depress the shift key *after* clicking on a size-adjustment handle, it is as if my shift key was never pressed. The aspect ration changes freely. 2. If I depress the shift key *before* clicking on a size-adjustment handle, the handles disappear and the image is frozen. (A blue outline appears around the image, but there are no size-adjustment handles, and the image cannot be moved.) I have tried also option and control, but these seem to have no effect. Please advise how I can resize a photo without changing its aspect ratio.

  9. PDFelement 6 Pro fails to update

  11. Registration Failure

    I registered my copy of PDFElement a couple of days ago, and it seemed to be working well. When I opened it today, I received this error dialog box: It reads: "Note: Connection timeout, please try again." I clicked "OK" to dismiss the dialog box, assuming that it was a simple glitch, but when I tried to save some PDF changes, I found that my copy of PDFElement had become unregistered. When I attempted to re-register PDFElement using my licensed email and registration code, the "Registered Successfully" web page was opened; however, in the app itself, the same error dialog was presented again, and the application remained unregistered. My network connection is very fast, and working just fine for all other communications. At this point, I'm completely stuck, and I find this behavior ridiculous and infuriating. The app shouldn't immediately un-register itself when it can't contact a server somewhere, and it shouldn't rely on such a fragile registration mechanism. Please advise how to proceed. Thanks.
  12. Hi community, desperate for some advice, have tried everything I could think off already! I want to make my PDF fillable for my clients, and I want them to be able to write 10 lines or so. I provide them with an exercise, than ask them to reflect below. Simple as that...only it isn't in PFD element, for me at least! Because even if I click 'multiple lines' and make the text form big, all my clients get to fill in is one line. What can I do? Grateful for any tips!

  14. So everything was working well when I was editing my PDF. The font was the same, it looked the exact same, but after I saved the document and emailed it to myself I was able to see everything I edited. Every word and number I touched was darker than the original font. I was running late for work so the only thing I could do was go back and edit other items to make it all blend. Now that's a waste of money if every time I edit a document it's still going to show my edits and not make the PDF blend like the original. Any suggestions??
  15. Empty text boxes?

  16. I am using PDFelement Pro 6 for macOS. I have a large scanned book that I would like to make searchable. When I run OCR against it, the result is indeed searchable. But all the pages have been changed to 25.63x33 inches instead of 8.5x11. Is it possible to run OCR to make a file searchable without in any way modifying the scanned images inside it?
  17. I am running the latest version of PDF elements pro and the latest version of high sierra and i now cannot set or change the tab sequence order on my PDF form What is happening with this paid for software... I urgently need an effective response please?
  18. Mr

    I have tried the Wondershare Support page and have chosen "I have suggestions to product manager", but the page does not work. You can't submit, so I write here about Scanning: "There is a saying that says: "Once you go Mac you never go back". But every time I have to scan multiple two-sided documents, I have to start my old Windows Laptop and use Adobe Acrobat, where the program itself sorts pages after scanning front and back pages. It would be nice to have this facility in PDFelement Pro".
  19. I am trying to extract data from large number of scanned PDFs, each is a "spreadsheet" but none are identical in layout. Arguably these are not very good scans as they are downloaded "as is" from United Nations archive files but these are the only versions I have access to for these periods of time. I have attempted to use the Data Extraction tool and am selecting individual rows, groups of rows, and even an entire portion of the page. This is an effort to eliminate unneeded data, etc. None of my attempts has been successful. The .csv file presents the data out of order, does not reflect proper spacing (allowing me to use "text to columns" in Excel), and is some cases the grid from the spreadsheet itself is recognized as text and is inserted into the data. I have tried using OCR before Data Extraction and the results are even worse. I've attached an example of one file. The first page has a red box the shows the data I'm trying to extract. I have also attempted to use the Export to Excel feature but this too is not working well - I'm still having to spend as much time moving data to the correct column/row as it would take to retype the entire spreadsheet. Because I have hundreds of pages to go through I was hoping to find a faster solution. Any assistance would be appreciated. feb-1993.pdf
  20. Hi guys, I am new to PDFelement and would like to know if I can start working on my iPad and continue on the Mac. I do not how to have all the files in all the devices. Is it possible? If yes, please let me know what I need to do. Thanks
  21. I have a new computer (MacBook Air (13", 2017)). Using Migration Assistant and a Time Machine backup, I have PDF Element working on the new computer and have uninstalled it from the old computer (MacBook Air 13 mid-2013). Will I receive update notices on the new computer? If the answer is no, please give me instructions on the steps to take to have update notices appear on the new computer.
  22. Does PDF Element work with OS X 10.13.3?

    I have PDF Element Pro 6.4.4. I think it's "for Mac" but there seems to be no way to tell if it is or not. What I do know is that I cannot get editable files after using OCR on PDFs. This is the only reason I bought the software and I can't seem to find any help, support, or contact information on the site. Does any know if the 6.4.4 is supposed to work with OS X High Sierra, or how to tell whether the program I was sold is meant for a Mac at all?

  25. OCR not editable

    I purchased PDF Element last year, was able to successfully OCR and edit one document, now it's not working well enough to be useable at all. I am running the latest OS High Sierra on a MacBook Pro. Looking at help menus I have tried trashing and reinstalling the program twice, and I now have what I believe is the latest edition of PDF Element 6.4.4.3233. Depending which set of directions I follow I either get a complete blank when I perform OCR on a PDF document, or I get a version of the original that is not really editable. The formatting comes out all cockeyed -- the margins, the spacing, the fonts, the formatting just a mess, and trying to fix it by further editing just makes it worse. I am attaching two examples of the results I get when I try to "convert PDFs to editable text" -- one is to Pages format, the other to Text Edit. I have gotten good use out of some Wondershare software I've used in the past, but this program is not working for me. What's the matter?
