PDF-XChange Standard V8 is the latest installment of our best-selling software for the conversion of industry-standard files formats to PDF. It's compatible with files from almost all Windows applications such as the MS Office applications AutoCAD. PDF-XChange Standard V8 features an optimized, hybrid 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 Standard installs as a virtual printer that generates fully-compatible, industry-standard, native PDF files. Generated files contain searchable text, which greatly increases the efficiency of searching, selecting and editing document text. (Please note that source files must be text-based in order to be converted into editable text). PDF-XChange Standard installs and is used in the same manner as a standard printer. Simply open files, select the option to Print and then select PDF-XChange Standard from the list of available printers. The document will then be converted into PDF. There is a wide range of customizable settings available that can be used to enhance and edit converted documents, as detailed in the later chapters of this manual.
PDF-XChange Standard requires no additional 'plug-ins' or software. However, we recommend the use of PDF-XChange Editor for the viewing and editing of files created with PDF-XChange Standard. These products were developed simultaneously and they are designed to work in tandem with each other. The evaluation version of PDF-XChange Editor is completely free and two-thirds of the features are available. Our downloads page is located 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.
