PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.312.1 Updated

Midas on 13 Feb 2015
  • 19MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Feb 2015
  • 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.

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.

I can't get the "select tool" or the "Highlight tool" to work. Anyone else have this problem?

webfork on 2015-02-13 00:14

Allen: They work fine but you need to have the text identified within the file.  Some PDF files come WITH text but others are essentially just images.  Fortunately this program has an option for a worthwhile OCR program to help pull out that text.  After that, the highlight tool should work.

Softpedia has portable UnityPDF v1.0.10.0: http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/Office/PDF/Portable-UnityPDF.shtml (choose Softpedia mirror download, the external link points back to the expired domain).

ExifToolGUI v5.15

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.
