PDF-XChange Lite V8 is the lite version of our best-selling software for the creation and virtual printing of industry-standard PDF files - PDF-XChange Standard V8. It's compatible with files from almost all Windows applications such as MS Word, Excel and AutoCAD. PDF-XChange Lite features an optimized, hybrid conversion engine that significantly increases the quality of conversion for images and image-based text characters and prints to both GDI and XPS. Converted files are smaller in this version too - allowing for faster uploads/downloads, a reduction in storage space and increased data retention - even at high levels of compression.
PDF-XChange Lite installs as a virtual printer that generates fully-compatible, industry-standard, native PDF files. The files that PDF-XChange Lite creates feature searchable text, which greatly increases the efficiency of searching, selecting and editing files.
When PDF-XChange Lite is installed, select files to print virtually and click Print. Select PDF-XChange Lite as the printer to be used. Documents will then print virtually to PDF. There are a range of adjustable settings that determine the parameters of created documents. For example, it is possible for documents to retain the name of the document from which they were created, and macros have been introduced to increase workflow efficiency.
PDF-XChange Lite requires no additional 'plug-ins' or software. However, we recommend installing another of our products, PDF-XChange Editor, for the viewing and manipulation of files created using PDF-XChange Lite. It's completely free, and the two products are designed to work in tandem. A free download of PDF-XChange Editor is available at the download page of our website, which is available here.
We offer several further cutting-edge applications for the manipulation of PDF and image files. See the Tracker Software Products Page for more information.
