pdfDocs 4.4 is a major update that offers improvements to DMS integration, dynamic XFA PDF forms handling, and streamlined interaction with Microsoft Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Improved DMS integration
Integration with document management systems has always been a key strength of pdfDocs and this version brings substantial improvements for users of iManage, NetDocuments, SharePoint, and OpenText Content Server. UK customers will appreciate the new built-in support for Laserform documents.
Re-engineered handling of dynamic XFA PDF forms
In pdfDocs 4.4, the handling of dynamic XFA PDF forms has been completely re-engineered. Users can now open, work with and save these files.
PDF editing abilities
Significant improvements have also been made in the editing of PDFs including the ability to flatten PDFs and copy to/from the clipboard.
Streamlined integration with Microsoft Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint
Users will enjoy a better and more streamlined interaction with Outlook thanks to a new right-click on attachment workflow that opens attachments directly in pdfDocs. pdfDocs now also retains hyperlinks and bookmarks from Excel and PowerPoint, preserving formatting and saving users time adding them in retrospectively.
Commenting on the update, President and Co-Founder of DocsCorp, Dean Sappey, said: “We are thrilled to provide these further significant enhancements to pdfDocs, resulting from our continued investment in R&D to ensure pdfDocs remains the world’s leading PDF management tool for document management professionals.”
