Based on our legendary "DocuCom PDF Driver", PDF
Gold is capable to convert all application source files to
PDF under Windows with speed and quality. Extensive features
are available, such as "Font Embedding", "Compression",
"Watermark", "Security", "Open Options",
and"Document Abstraction"; See PDF
Driver for details.
PDF Gold offers extra benefits for:

Drag-Drop Inserting(or copy-paste)/insert objects
(files) on document pages.
Carefully-designed workspace allows you to browse PDF documents
easily with different layouts and magnifications. A single
click brings you to the next (or previous) page, or scrolls
the contents with preferred speed. By combining the Hand with
the Dynamic Zoom and Loupe tools, PDF Gold helps you to browse
document pages painlessly while relieving every detail of
|Powerful Printing Controls
Our thorough printing controls allow specifying print range,
order, copies, zoom/fit factors, tile or N-up printing; with
precise preview. You can even blow up the print out somehow
by removing page margins.
PDF Gold allows you to treat all documents in the same way.
For example, you can freely combine MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
or other source files into one PDF document; or drag-drop
pages from different sources to assemble a new document. (Note:
All files are converted to PDF in background, if necessary.)
You may then freely re-arrange pages (Rotate, Crop, Copy,
Paste, Delete, and/or Extract pages); create bookmarks and/or
hyperlinks; create table of contents; re-number pages; and
then secure and publish the documents.
You can create bookmark trees to logically represent a document.
You can even drag the whole bookmark tree across files to
create a document archive easily. Link tool can define a hot
area on document page to be associated with another page view
Various"Markup" tools are available to
- Highlight, Cross out, Underline text phrases;
- Draw Lines, Eclipse, Rectangle, Polygon, Polyline, Clouds,
and/or Freehand shapes;
- Add popup"Comment" (works like stitching notes)
for entering comments. Markups may have string of popup
notes from different reviewers;
- Add text phrases using Text Box tool.
- Attach application files to PDF document.
- Add Stamps on PDF pages.
The Comment Panel in document “Navigation”
panel helps you to organize all markups in one place,
where you can sort or show markups by type, date, author,
Documents can be secured using passwords. "Open"
password controls the permissions to read the document, while
"Secure" password controls the permission to copy,
print, annotate, or modify the document. Both 40bits and 128bits
encryptions are available.
|Getting/Setting Document Properties
Other than the security information, you can obtain Summary
or Fonts information of the document; and optionally set (or
add) Initial View or Custom Fields (metadata) to the document.
|Creating PDF Forms
You can create electronic form by designing the form (with
static text and graphics) in any authoring application, such
as MS Word. Then drag the Word document in PDF Gold (will
be converted to PDF automatically) and start to create dynamic
fields using the form tools -- Button, Check Box, Radio Box,
Combo Box, List, and Text Field.
customizing form fields. It is possible for developers to
extend new "Actions" or new "Appearances"
by writing plug in.
The Search tool helps to locate information in PDF documents
by looking phrases in the current document, a specified
folder, or an indexed archive:
- Search current document.
- Search all files in specified folder.
- Search against pre-build index files.
"PDF Gold" (including PDF Plus Professional)
is capable to create indexes across gigabytes of PDF documents.
This Unicode based index engine allows searching both
the contents and pre-defined custom fields.
|Editing Page Contents
PDF Gold (PDF Plus Professional) offers following methods
for editing page contents. For example, you can add clipart
on a blank page then copy/paste/edit text data to complete
a photo album:
- Insert clipart: Introduce new clipart (objects) by drag-drop
(or Copy/Paste) objects on PDF page. Source file will be
converted to PDF if necessary.
- Manipulate clipart: You may then Select, Move, Rotate,
- Edit text data: Use Touchup Text tool to edit text data
on document page.
Note: you cannot edit
the text font which is not available locally and is embedded
with subset (only partially embedded) in the document.
PDF Gold (PDF Plus Professional) uses industrial standard
Public-Private Keys to "Digitally" sign the document
to prevent illegal modification or piracy. Essentially, you
create a key pair, Public Key and Private Key first; keep
the Private Key safely while sending Public Keys to others.
Important: Data encrypted
by the private key can only be decrypted by the public key,
and vice versa.
* Signing a Document using
Private Key: Since only you own the "Private"
key (used to sign the document), and if your public key
(distributed to the public) can decrypt the file successfully,
then it can be sure the file is signed by your "Private"
key in other words by you. Once signed with the private
key, any modification of the document will break the seal.
* Encrypting a Document using Public Key: You may also send private document to a friend
(encrypted the document with your friend's public key)
while no others can read.
Note: Third party digital
ID and certificates can be supported under PDF Gold (PDF
Plus Professional) by writing new security plug-ins.
You can send selected pages, or the whole document to mail
Unlimited levels of Redo and Undo helps you to correct mistakes
when editing the PDF document.
Developer can write plug-ins to realize application specific
features to expand the basic functions provided by PDF Gold
The SDK Edition will come with "Application Wizard"
to be integrated with VC++. You can dramatically reduce the
development cost by creating the plug-in framework automatically.
For compatibility reasons, PDF Plus also provides compatible
APIs documented in AcrobatTM SDK 5; and most of existing AcrobatTM
plug-ins can be easily ported to Plus 6.
