Nuance Communications has launched a new touch-enabled version of Power PDF software, providing an intuitive Microsoft Office look and feel for the creation, conversion, editing and sharing of PDF files, with support for Windows 10 touch-enabled 2-in-1 convertible laptops.
Holly Muscolino, research VP, printing, imaging and document solutions for IDC, said: “Nuance Power PDF 2 addresses the needs
of more than 270 million active Windows 10 users by delivering PDF software tools that conform to their familiar Microsoft Office 2016 experience.”
She added: “It provides an impressive array of features specifically designed to make business staff and mobile professionals more secure and productive, with pricing and licensing structures that make it easy and cost-effective to deploy in large and small organisations.”
Meeting the growing need for business software to support touch-enabled hybrid devices, Power PDF 2 enables users to navigate, annotate and type using a tablet or notebook and a pen or finger. A ‘touch mode’ option on the Quick Access Toolbar optimises toolbars and icons for pressing with a finger.
Other useful features include a ‘find a tool’ search capability that enables users to find any tool or functionality in the application and a Quick Access Toolbar that allows users to create shortcuts to frequently used functions.
The software provides all the tools needed to annotate, mark up, sign, secure, redact and compress PDFs, and create and work with PDF forms, making it easy to edit and publish PDF files. Users can quickly and accurately convert files from Word to PDF and from PDF to Word.
