PDF Studio 8

December 20, 2012 – Qoppa Software, a leading producer of PDF software, announces a major new release of PDF Studio, their powerful, easy to use, cross-platform PDF desktop tool. PDF Studio 8 adds javascript support in PDF forms, faster rendering, improved text selection, and user interface improvements.

PDF Studio 8 greatly refines the user experience when working with all features of our advanced PDF application: when rendering PDF documents, when reviewing and marking up documents with annotations, and when filling interactive PDF forms. Our goal at Qoppa is to continue to offer the best deal on PDF software: ahead of the competition when it comes to features, but at less than a third of the price! When you consider that PDF Studio is also cross-platform, this makes it the best choice for enterprise deployments.” says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software President.

Formatted fields in javascript

JavaScript Support: Filling interactive PDF forms in PDF Studio 8 has become even easier with JavaScript support which adds:
+ Form field calculations to automatically compute the value of given fields from other fields.
+ Form field validation to prevent invalid data entry and ensure that all required fields are filled in.
+ Form field formatting to facilitate the capture of special fields such as dates, social security numbers, postal codes, phone numbers, etc…


OCR for Windows, Mac and Linux: PDF Studio 8 offers a new OCR function allowing to create searchable PDFs from scanned documents. OCR which stands for Optical Character Recognition can be applied to existing PDF documents or at the time of scanning to convert paper documents directly into searchable PDFs. The text added can be searched, edited or marked up with highlights, underline, cross-out or caret annotations. The OCR function is available to Windows, Mac OSX and Linux users. Supported languages are English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.


Cursor-based text selection with column detection

Text Selection: PDF Studio 8’s new text model delivers major enhancements in the way text is extracted, selected, and marked up in the application:

  • Text extraction and selection now support column detection in documents with multi-column page layout such as articles, magazines, and other publications.
  • The new cursor-based selection and highlight tool follows the natural order of text within pages and handle selection across columns. An alternate rectangular selection mode is also available as a fall back to when selecting non-consecutive text on a page.
Nimbus Look And Feel

Improved User Interface: PDF Studio 8 offers new graphical skin options to choose from when customizing the appearance of the application, including the Substance and the Nimbus look and feel. Professionals in the print, graphics, and construction industry will also enjoy the new Pan and Zoom tool which allows zooming inside high-resolution documents and moving around a page while keeping a view of the overall page on screen.

Rendering Speed: Qoppa has implemented a new tile based rendering approach which greatly improves the user experience when working with graphically intensive PDF documents and delivers:

  • Huge performance increases when rendering documents and drawing annotations.
  • Better responsiveness when scrolling, navigating, and zooming in PDF documents.

Responding to user needs, Qoppa Software has added many other significant enhancements to PDF Studio 8, including the ability to remove watermarks, headers and footers; an advanced undo function; a window cascade / tile function; and the option to save a PDF document as linearized for fast viewing over the web.

Qoppa Software Announces PDF Studio 7, Cross-platform PDF editor, with Content Editing and Enhanced User Interface

December 20, 2011 – Qoppa Software, a leading producer of PDF software, announces a major new release of PDF Studio, their powerful, easy to use, cross-platform PDF editor.  PDF Studio 7 augments the collaboration power of PDF with new content editing capabilities, enhanced user interface, new PDF viewing options and additional PDF functionality.

“This release takes PDF Studio to the next level!  PDF Studio 7 is a full featured PDF editor, comparable to the best editors on the market but at less than a third of the price.  When you consider that PDF Studio is also cross-platform, this makes it the best choice for enterprise deployments.” says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software President.

PDF Studio 7 Pro lets users edit the content and manipulate the objects in a PDF document.  Users can make small modifications such as correcting typos and misspellings, changing font properties or rearranging images before final publishing.  The new Edit Content tool works with single or multiple objects, including text, images, or path objects.

Redaction, removing text from a PDF document and replacing its location with a black rectangle, is a newly available function in PDF Studio 7.  Redaction is relied on by professionals in many industries to protect confidential information within PDF documents.

PDF Studio 7 offers an improved user interface.  Users can now choose their favorite Look And Feel for the application and customize the toolbars to suit the way they work.  Professionals who need to examine small details in a PDF document will be glad for the new Loupe Tool and the ability to do a side by side comparison of two versions of a PDF with the sophisticated “double loupe tool”.

Users working on small screens, in a dark room, on an airplane, or at night, will love the new PDF Studio 7 function to invert colors when rendering a PDF document.  For typical documents, the display will change from “Black on White” to “White on Black”.

Responding to user needs, Qoppa has added the ability to email PDF documents directly from the tool.  Users may collaborate electronically and efficiently by easily sending individual PDF documents from within PDF Studio.  Those enrolled in online fax services (such as myfax.com or efax.com) will now be able to fax directly from the tool.

Conversion to PDF from Word files, image files, and text files can be done individually or in a batch.  Word to PDF conversion was enhanced in this release to include support for the latest Word format (.doc or .docx).
