Can you name a productivity tool that was used two years ago but now it’s nowhere to be found? I certainly can…
The technology is rapidly changing and something that was considered revolutionary couple of years ago can now be completely out of the limelight. This refers to products in both our offices and homes. When taking our work into consideration, the biggest difference is in the way we interact with our colleagues.
The usage of internet and its technology have brought us many different tools for better and faster collaboration. From project management software, results and people tracking apps, up to the document manipulation tools — everything became much quicker and smoother. With just a few clicks, you can now send and receive digital files across all of your devices. A big percentage of those files are textual documents.
These work related text documents usually come in PDF — a portable document format for all platforms and devices. The fact that it’s a universal format makes it the most popular type for business use in all industries. Students use PDFs to share their notes, bankers to store bank statements and bloggers to save their unique content. However, the PDF is not all about storing. On a lot of occasions, it needs to be edited as well.
There are various reasons why one might need to edit PDF, but most importantly it is to repurpose the information inside it. Here is where you’ll need a small help from a third party software tool. Luckily, Able2Extract is one of them. The latest version, version 11, has 4 main features that allow you to do just about anything with your PDFs. Let’s explore them in more detail.
