Portable Document Format (PDF) is the leading solution for presenting and sharing all kinds of documents across different computer platforms and devices. It is so widely used that you come to think it must be the most popular file format in the world.
From kids reading their school material or a favourite book on their laptops; and students downloading academic papers on their computer and sending their written seminars to professors and colleagues; to business companies that are probably mostly dependent on the file format, because – fast and ongoing document and information flow is an essential part of a modern business success.
But how did it all begin? Just 25 years ago, Dr. John Warnock, a 50 year old computer scientist and Adobe Co-founder, had a vision, a business opportunity that fundamentally changed the way today’s businesses operate. Called The Camelot Project, the main idea behind it was to develop the “ability to communicate visual material between different computers application and systems”. After 1.5 years of extensive research and development, this project produced what is now called the PDF – a highly secured, accurate and sharable file format. And the rest is history (of PDF).
But, as it generally goes in the real world, nothing is perfect. With Despite all the its advantages that the PDF format possesses, there come slight disadvantages that can seriously disrupt disturb your business efficiency. Not being an editable format, is definitely one of them. The PDF is not easily edited, revised or manipulated. And here, “not easily” means that you have two options.
One is to manually retype all the information locked into PDF to some other editable application, i.e. as Microsoft Word. When it comes to one or two pages of a written text, it can be manageable to finish this task in half an hour or so. But if we are talking about large business reports or academic papers, this option seems rather sluggish and annoying. There is also the possibility of typing mistakes during the process, which puts even more hours of comparing and double checking your written text on top of all the work you already have. Clearly, not a good idea. Time is money, and you need to handle your time effectively and efficiently.
This leads us to option number two: PDF converters. Luckily, there is a technology solution that can automate the conversion process and transform your PDF into an editable file format in just a few clicks. There are a number of PDF converters and conversion options available today, but people are always on the lookout for a free, quick and accurate PDF manipulation tool.
