PDF Studio 9 lets you create rich, interactive PDF documents by converting other formats (Word, text, image files) to PDF, converting paper documents to PDF (scan-to-PDF), adding searchable text to scanned documents (OCR in Pro version only), merging or assembling documents, adding bookmarks, watermarks, headers, footers, and more!

Professionals working with customers or consultants can boost productivity with a consistent workflow. PDF Studio 9 lets you add and change a document’s annotation review status as it moves from draft to final version, and secure your PDF documents with encryption and passwords. Or by using PDF Studio 9 Pro to add your own digital signatures.

But that's not all! You can also easily fill interactive forms with PDF Studio 9. Got a form that isn't interactive? Use PDF Studio 9’s typewriter tool to annotate your answers directly onto the page.

VLM Are comments and other markup created in your software usable in Acrobat Reader, and vice versa? in other words, If I am using your software and working on a project where some users/reviewers are using Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, can we all work together with ease?

Leila H. Yes, PDF Studio is totally compliant with the PDF format and will read annotations created in Adobe products and vice versa.

VLM Thank you. One more question ... does it use menus or ribbons. I already have ribbons in Nitro PDF, don't need more of those! :)

Bertie Brummel @ VLM: When you watch the video in full screen mode you can easily see the menus ... I have Nitro PDF too, but hardly use it anymore.

Joel Dubow Can this program convert PDF to word? Thanks.

Al Johnston What are the key differences from Pro Studio 8 and this new version? Is there an upgrade discount?

Leila H. @Joel PDF Studio can convert from Word to PDF not the other way around. This is not the easiest way to do it, but PDF Studio can convert from PDF to a text file that you can then open in your Word processing software to organize and format. Also it is important to note that Word 2013 will open PDF files and convert them to PDF on the fly.

Leila H. @Al The big new features in version 9 are: Interactive Form Designer (pro), Advanced Redaction (pro), Annotations Enhancements, PDF/A Validation and Conversion (pro). See the full release notes: The bitsdujour promo is only valid for new purchases.

Leila H. @vml Permanent redaction is used to black out and remove sensitive information such as SSN in a document before distributing it. It is a pro feature. The tool chest (look for a tab called "My Comments" on the left side) stores all recent markups so you can use them again without having to recreate them. Users can also save their favorite comments. This is a Standard feature not restricted to Pro.
Qoppa Software - Nov 26 2014 at 6:38am Copy Link
VLM So the Tool Chest is somewhat like a clipboard cache for markups, does that sound like a reasonable description? Does it retain its memory upon closing and reopening the application?

I have a couple of additional questions, if you don't mind.

1. How many "recent documents" can the application support? I ask because it's quite common to find this limited to 10 documents, which is an absurdly small number for anyone who does serious research online. Honestly, I have never understood the need for any limit at all.

2. If the program or the system (more likely :) crashes, upon reopening the application, does it fully recover the last session?

3. Is there a means for fully recovering the last session, regardless of size, even when the program is properly shut down?

Frankly, I don't know of any PDF application that handles these things well. But I don't know of all PDF applications, so I'm hopeful that yours does better than the rest WRT these matters.

Thank you!

Leila H. Okay, I just stepped away from my family and installed the program. With the holidays, no time to test properly today, but I do have a few quick questions.

1. Will there be tabs in v. 10?

2. The menus are crammed so close together as to be visually almost indistinguishable. Any plans to space these out a bit?

3. VERY few of the menus or the menu items have apparent shortcuts, and I see no underlined letters, as in alt-f, o for file > open. Can this be controlled via the UI? (Again, sorry, no time to look.) We love menus, but only if we can use them via the keyboard. One more program that sends us to the mouse constantly is not in the cards. Honestly, I can't understand why you wouldn't want lots of shortcuts for your won use. :)

Thank you!

Leila H. Oh no! I clicked on the reply link in a private response from the company, and my reply ended up looking like it came from Leila. I hope this one doesn't!
Qoppa Software - Nov 26 2014 at 2:51pm Copy Link
Leila H. @vlm so many questions and I just have a few minutes to respond

Recent Files: I believe we are showing about 20 recent files in v9. In v9, we will be showing 200 organized by "This Week", "Last Week", etc...

System Restore: We don't have a system restore at the moment. But when PDF Studio saves, it saved to a temporary file so if there is any issue during the save, the original file is not overwritten.

Conversion: PDF Studio can convert from Word, images and text to PDF, as well as from PDF to images, text but not Word.

Menus: We are adding more shortcuts for version 10 but we are not changing the spacing in the menus.

Tabs: There will be no tabs in version 10. Read this KB entry:
