  5. Playing badly with Windows 10 Snap Assist

    Hi, as the title says, PDFElement takes up more than its half of screen real estate when "snapped" to one side of the screen, rendering the snap assist feature of windows difficult to use. Any plans to help the program work with this useful windows feature? Also, while I know document compare is in the works, how about simple side-by-side viewing of two pdfs? Sometimes I need to go back and forth between a couple of documents by eye. This, along with snap assist, would be a useful feature for me. Thanks!

Release the mouse click and drop the selected pages in the thumbnail panel of this second opened PDF file. You can also choose the position where to insert the pages, just put your mouse click on the correct page position in the thumbnail, then release your mouse click. After inserting the pages, you can still move the page to the correct place to change the order as you want. Here is the video for reference: Video_2017-07-10_151403.wmv
  12. Windows 7 Pro, Wondershare PDF Editor.. I have a large PDF file (15.1 MB) with a mixture of landscape and portrait pages. Converting to PPT truncates all the landscape pages!

  15. The newly added feature "Scanner to PDF" from PDFelement 6.1 allows you to hook up your scanners with PDFelement, so you can import the scanned documents directly from scanners to PDFelement, you can also OCR the scanned image into editable text. This feature is quite straight-forward. But do you know that you can also apply this same technique practically on any devices with image-capture capability, including... Yes, your smart PHONE! First, you took a photo of a hard-copy document with your phone. Then you connect the phone to your computer. (Make sure the computer has the driver of your phone properly installed.) 1. Launch PDFelement and go to Home > From Scanner 2. Click on the scanner drop down menu, you will find a list connected devices in the selections, including your phone, Go ahead and select your phone as the data source, and click Scan to proceed. 3. The "scanning" process will take awhile, if you have tons of photos stored in your phone. My iPhone storage has about 3000 photos, it took PDFelement less than 30 seconds to complete the scanning process, so I think it's pretty darn fast! 4. Now select the photo that you want to converted to PDF from your phone, and proceed with Get Photo. 5. After that, it will ask you if you have done all the selections or you want to continue with selecting more photos. After you finished with all the photo selections, click Yes. 6. PDFelement will convert the photos into PDF, with the option to OCR the scanned content into digital searchable and editable text. (Tips: Make sure your document is not upside-down or on its side before performing OCR. You might wanna rotate its layout to the upright direction first with the Rotate options from the PAGE tab.) 7. Now you know, you have a super convenient "Scanner" with OCR capability right in your pocket, no matter where you go. If all these are too complicated for you, there is always a short-cut. PDFelement is available on iOS too. (The Android version is also coming in a few months) PDFelement for iOS: https://pdf.wondershare.com/pdfelement-ios/ or get it directly from Apple App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id1150215996?mt=8 You can create PDF directly from your phone camera with this app (with so much more neat functions to discover). However, if you need to OCR the content, you still have to transfer the PDFs to the desktop version to get it done. Hope all these hope.
  16. Hello. I am currently on the free trial & comparing the site to my current provider DocuSign. I noticed your Main Page states we can create reusable templates, which is a big requirement for the work that I do. Unfortunately I can;t seem to figure out how to create the templates on your website. Do you happen to have a video or some other document which explains the process? Thanks!
  17. Resizing Thumbnails

    I like to use the thumbnail view while reading PDFs because it gives me quick access to the Edit and Comments toolbars if I need to make some immediate changes. If you’re like me, you skim through the thumbnails looking for recognizable colours, shapes and blocks of text in order to jump to a specific page of the document. This can be really challenging if the thumbnails are too small. Did you know that you can make those thumbnails much bigger? First, ensure that the thumbnail window is visible on the side of your screen (step 1). Step 1 Then, right-click on any thumbnail and select Enlarge Page Thumbnails (step 2). Step 2 Finally, drag out the edge of the window so that your extra-large thumbnails sit comfortably (step 3). Step 3 Happy PDFing!

  19. Sizing of watermark

    Hi, I would like to add the same watermark (.png or .bmp file) on numerous documents of varying formats using the batch function. The watermark should always be of the same size when printing the document later on. When configuring the watermark there are only 2 options given: - the watermark will cover the whole width of the document - the watermark will be scaled to a certain percentage of the document. non of which leads to the desired result. Does anyone have a solution to this issue? Regards Torsten .

  22. Hi, I'm trying pdfelement 6 pro ( (trial) I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) with 8 GB of RAM and AMD A10-5800K APU (my PC is quite fast) a) After booting the system / restarting the system, If I open a pdf file in pdfelement it takes 50 seconds to 1 minute to open / load any pdf file. I tried with multiple pdf file and many times but same result. b) In general it takes around 10 to 15 seconds to open any pdf file in pdfelement. Sometimes I use pdfelement just to read a pdf document. Please increase the speed of opening the pdf file in pdfelement. (Foxit Reader / Adobe Reader is quite fast in opening a pdf or loading a pdf file. It is almost instant) Thanks Aren
  23. Hi there, I'm having trouble with calculating fields. I have a handful of numerical fields that need to be added together. I created a "total" field, set it to calculate a sum, and included all of my numerical fields. However, when I try changing the numbers in the fields that are added together, the total doesn't update/calculate properly. Sometimes when I enter a value, the calculated field doesn't add it to the total. Sometimes when I update a second field, the total will reflect the first change I made but not the change to the second field. If I then remove all values, meaning the total should be zero, the total stays at whatever the last calculated value was. I just can't figure out how a simple sum could go so awry. The values I'm adding together are themselves the product of a calculation. Could that be causing the problem? I don't see why it should, but I can't figure out what else could be causing the glitch.

  25. Hi, The PDF Element Pro 6 Form creation has a bug in it, that the forms only work on a computer and cannot be 'displayed' correctly when using an IOS device and software like PDF Element IOS, or even Adobe Reader. If I create a form vi PDF Element, I can view and modify the form easily using my computer + Adobe etc, If I were send this form to the IOS Device and try to use a PDF editing software to fill in the form, yes the form is fillable - however you cannot see the text as the blue fillable box sits over the text, so it is a bit pointless - as you cannot see what you have written, checked for spelling mistakes etc etc. I have attached a video of the issue, please fix it as this is a critical reason why I purchased the PRO version. If I use software like Adobe Form Creator, it works on all devices fine and has not immediate issues for me to see. Can you please issue a fix for this as soon as possible, I created a large amount of fillable forms - it now looks like they are not going to work on most devices except computers now. So I will have to recreate them all.
