PDF, or Portable Document Format, is a widely used electronic document format. Files in this format look and print the same on all platforms, due to the detailed information they contain about the formatting, character sets, and graphics used in a particular document. However, the back-side of these advantages is the inability to edit text inside PDF files, change its formatting, or work with numerical data.
ABBYY PDF Transformer 2.0 can convert any type of PDF document into an editable format, preserving the formatting of the original.
You can also create your own PDF documents. ABBYY PDF Transformer uses a printer driver by Tracker Software Products Ltd. to create PDF documents.
PDF files may be protected by their authors from unauthorized viewing and/or data extraction. Only users who know the passwords may access such PDF files, which ensures the protection of the copyright of the authors. The following types of password are used to protect PDF files:
- Document Open Password
This password protects the document from unauthorized viewing: users will need to type the password in order to open the file.
- Permissions Password
This password protects the document from unauthorized editing and printing: users will need to enter the password in order to edit or print the file.
ABBYY PDF Transformer allows you to:
- Convert password-protected PDF files;
When you attempt to open a password-protected PDF file, the program will ask you to enter a password. The file will not be opened and converted unless you enter a valid password.
- Set passwords when creating PDF documents
When creating a PDF file, you can protect it by either one of the passwords (i.e. by a Document Open Password or by a Permissions Password), or by both passwords.
