Nitro PDF Pro v6 US $40

This not the one with OCR built in, but for a good PDF program, it's a good deal.

I have no use for such a  program, but it's nice that all proceeds from this sale go to charity.  :up:

What do you use for PDF, Innuendo. Just curious is all.
I still use Nitro but would use Adobe if I needed to.
Printing to the Nitro printer is easy and comes out very good.
I use that for saving things that I need to save for a while,
as well as for communication when needed.

Well, I don't use anything for PDF...other than Foxit Reader. I have no need to create PDFs, only read them.

However, for those needing to create them, this certainly looks like it may be the way to go.

I bought it mostly because I have been using their PrimoPDF free export-to-pdf tool (tested a few and this one worked most consistently) - it had a few features that seemed handy and why not buy from the people who give a good free tool? (they have several single focus freeware apps=

At full price Nitro was a bit too much (i could use some features but many are lost on me) but with the rebate it was a better fit.

My main PDF needs besides just "save as" has been with °§¬|@ expense reports. Theoretically I'm supposed to scan receipts, upload them into the system, then print a summary report, sign it, scan it back and send it to india for checking... Alas I am on the road a lot on this project and finding and using printers and scanners are not what I want to waste time on. So I have been combining different tools (digital camera, photo editor, pagemanager) to avoid using a printer or scanner.

What nitroPDF adds that I didnt have with pagemanager is the ability to swap a page within the PDF if I got something wrong. What I hoped it would have that it doesn't is the pasting of a vector version of my signature - for that I still have to use Inkscape. But as Inkscape only allows single page PDF editing, the page swapping of nitro helps :)

Would it be acceptable to have a separate PDF of your signature, and add it to the end of the main data PDF using, say, PDFTK, if you want a freeware?

It probably would be - the first time I did my expenses I hadnt figured out the inkscape trick so I just sent my signature in the email recopying the "this expense report is correct and accurate" blah blah, and it went through :)

Right now I open the one page that needs a signature in Inkscape, paste and resize my svg signature on the dots where the document expects it (converted from an old wmf i did years ago), save the one page to a new file, and open the original file all in nitro to replace that page with the new one in the document.

Sounds like a lot of work? you should hear what I have to do with the receipts to emulate a "scan to pdf"

I would say the deal is (almost) awesome! Nitro is so much better quality than any other pdf editor you can have for $40.

Sounds like a candidate for a macro!  :)
