The smarter PDF solution

Over the last two years, the number of opened PDFs has grown exponentially by more than 300% to reach a total of nearly 20 billion documents per year, according to the PDF Association: a clear indicator of the necessity for a modern PDF tool.

2. New export option added to compare documents: exporting comparison results into Microsoft® Word with track-changes mode.

4. Make an impact across the organization: improved options for virtualization scenarios and roll-out automation.
