About Editing PDF Documents

Most of the following editing options relate to Searchable PDF or Normal PDF files. When you open an image-only PDF file in PDF Converter Professional, or one that has image-only pages, the program auto-detects this and offers to make it a:

  • Searchable PDF: this keeps the original page images, so the appearance is conserved, but adds a searchable text layer.

  • Normal PDF: this is the second option, so original page images are discarded.

  • PDF Form: done by running FormTyper on it to create active form controls.

  • PDF file that remains as it is.

Packages contain only PDF files in a single hierarchy; non-PDF files are converted to PDF to enter the package. Files of any type can be added to a portfolio; their file types are retained and they can be arranged in a folder hierarchy. Portfolios are managed through a modern Flash-based user interface.
