PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.311.0 Updated

Midas on 30 Oct 2014
  • 19MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Myles

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.

Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths and is bundled with the OCR plugin and help.

Note: The free version of PDF-XChange Viewer is missing some features of its commercial siblings, but is otherwise fully functional and totally free for both private and commercial use.

Midas: thanks for the reply. A while back, I had posted this issue on the PDF-XChange Viewer forum and was told of their switching to the Editor. Of course, I tried to get the Editor to install (no Portable edition available), but that wouldn't work either.

The Editor page does say that XP is supported. I'm hoping someone using the recent version of either the Editor or the Viewer might have some suggestions.

Just tested the 2.5.309.0 version of PortableApps' PDF-xchange ... it doesn't appear to include the OCR tools.

My favorite part about the free version of PDF-XChange Viewer is the Security encryption options. Free 256-bit AES PDF protection! Otherwise, you'll have to use some awful PAID software for that security feature.

If you have UnityPDF version 1.0.1.0 don't update it, 'Remove (clean) metadata' feature has been disabled in the free version.

smaragdus on 2014-08-25 14:14

UnityPDF 1.0.5.0 has been released. Since version 1.0.4.0 UnityPDF is completely free without any limitations:

ExifToolGUI v5.15 Updated

webfork on 3 Sep 2014
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

ExifToolGUI is a tool for viewing/editing metadata inside a long list of file types including document, audio, video, image, PDF, and more. For images, the program can both view and edit metadata information such as camera/device used, settings on the device, and even map the location the picture was taken if the camera has GPS capability. The program also supports IPTC and XMP tags, has batch capability, and can import/export all tags.

For privacy (and file size), the program can remove all metadata from selected files.

The program is a front-end for the cross-platform ExifTool. It extracts the content of ExifTool.exe to a temp folder under the user's folder, along with thumbs, if enabled.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7

Everytime I use it, this program surprises me away with a LOT of data about files. If ever you want to try and understand the history, author, or other details about a given file, ExifTool is a great place to start.
