The first versions gave users an effective way to convert PDF files to Microsoft Office documents and back again, create PDF files from multiple sources and edit them easily.
Next-generation solutions delivered other innovations, such as voice recognition that lets users add notes to PDF files simply by speaking, support for touch-enabled Windows 10 devices, and the ability to connect with document management systems and cloud services.
PDF solutions also focused on security. For example, leading PDF software let users add password protection to important files, permanently redact sensitive information and create permissions to control document viewing, printing and modifications. They could even apply protection to PDF documents using Microsoft Active Directory or Microsoft Rights Management Services – all to provide enterprise-level security and rights management.
All of these innovations were designed to enable users and their companies to gain control over PDF workflows to save time, improve productivity and deliver even better business results.
And now, new innovations are here to further revolutionize the PDF experience.
