May 2 2014 – Qoppa Software, a leading producer of PDF software, announces version 9 of PDF Studio, their powerful, easy to use PDF editing software for Windows, Mac and Linux. PDF Studio 9 adds an interactive form designer, an advanced redaction feature, conversion to PDF/A and numerous digital signatures and annotations enhancements.
“PDF Studio 9 adds many advanced features for business users.” says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software President. “The enhancements in version 9 make PDF Studio ready to deploy to the enterprise and integrate into document workflows, from creation to archiving, through revision and approval process. Our goal is to provide an all-in-one, affordable PDF solution for all businesses and organizations, whether they are running Windows, Mac or Linux.”
The advanced redaction function helps remove sensitive information from PDF documents prior to publication or release. Redaction annotations are first added to cover confidential areas on page, then applied as a second step, or “burnt-in” into the document, to permanently delete the underlying text, images or shapes.
For long-term storage and archival of documents, governments, publishers and bigger organizations are converting PDF files to PDF/A. It is a strict subset of the PDF format which helps ensure that documents will render the same in the future as when they were saved. PDF Studio 9 provides PDF/A compliance verification as well as the ability to convert existing files to PDF/A format.
PDF Studio 9 adds various enhancements around digital signatures with new support for certifying signatures, time-stamps, Windows and Mac certificate managers, the latest AES 256 encryption, and other security features such as enforcing and clearing usage right enablement, and accessing server protected textbooks.
With version 9, it is also easier than ever to review and comment PDF documents using PDF Studio 9’s new quick properties and alignment toolbars, and user-friendly color picker.
