PDF utilities are needed for various purposes like editing, conversion and other features. Here is a quick run down on the top 5 handy web based PDF utilities that you need for various purposes.
DocQ: It would be great if you could have a on-the-fly, web based utility that helped you in editing PDF documents. Well, your wish has come true with DocQ. This free service requires only registration from your part and after that helps you with all possible quick edit features- editing and annotation, instant share, online storage, form simplifying and even digital signage. This utility further offers various other features under the main categories- like shape tools, typewriters, PDF highlighter tool, PDF publishing to embeddable DocQ e-magazine format, keyword based search within the text, metadata-to-tag integration, thumbnail preview and professional grade PDF forms along with a host of other handy features.
PDF Hammer: . This utility, from NitroPDF Software is another cool, on-the fly option to do quick edits on your PDF documents on the web. This PDF editor does not require any installation and helps you to view the web pages of your PDF files as you edit them. It also provides file merge features, edit PDF pages option, metadata updation facilities and password based content protection for its files.
One recurring issue with PDF files is their conversion feature. You sometimes run into a bit of a trouble with PDF file conversion during editing. Here is a couple of utilities to address this.
PDF to Excel: NitoPDF’s nice little utility, solves that in no time. This utility simply lets you convert a PDF file (online) to excel through three tree breezy steps- “select” (PDF), “convert” (to .xls) and “email”.
PDF Online: This utility enables you to convert MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint files to PDF in three similarly easy and breezy steps â€“ select the convertible document or image, rename the output file. You just need to put your email address for the converted file to be mailed to you.
Unlocking, Ensode : Some PDf files have this feature where it does not allow to copy paste from the file itself. You need an utility like Ensode for this kind of cases. When you open a PDF file with Ensode, this free utility opens a new version of the PDF in a new window. This version does not have these features -i.e. the copy-paste block.
