As with other PDF-Exchange products the editor doesn't disappoint, it works as advertised and does all I want and more :)

I had a document with both text and pasted images. While Acrobat Pro kept complaining there was rendered text and wouldn't OCR the available images, PDFXChange got right to it.

Categories classification:

Currently, WindowsFileAnalyser can be looked up under 2 categories
- Files -> Miscellaneous (25)
- Security -> Privacy Tools (42)

Would it be appropriate to expand the list with the newly created "Security -> "Forensic Tools" subcategory ?

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

PAFuser on 2017-06-30 15:11

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).

PDF-XChange is the PDF reader I use, but make sure You configure it
right before executing the programm.(fx. disable Java).
Foxit Reader doesnt have the tools I like that comes with PDF-XChange.

MIKLO on 2017-12-24 16:02

@CornHolio the Gringo agreed PDF-XChange is what I use for anything PDF and have been using for many years. Although I don't mean to take anything away from Foxit cause its good software in its own right. Even thought its been a few years since anyone has posted this is still an important download for anyone looking for a good PDF Reader that's Portable :)

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux. Functional on 64-bit Windows.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you manually add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

MoisheP on 2018-06-17 01:13

DocFetcher indexes many formats, such as LibreOffice documents, that Microsoft Search (aka Cortana) does not, or does incompletely. It also uses far less CPU time, once the initial indexing is completed, than MS. DocFetcher also runs on Linux. Results can be sorted by likelihood of match, as well as filename, type, date etc. Only downside is that it requires Java.
