This week in PDF: Jaws PDF Editor 3 released

This week in PDF, the column looks at major updates to the PDF viewer that looks like a Windows app but sounds like a killer shark and a conversion utility that allows users to open PDF files in Microsoft Office along with the release of a new tool that should make exporting to PDF that much easier.

First up, Global Graphics has released an update to its PDF viewing and editing application. Jaws PDF Editor 3.0 supports PDF 1.5 (that’s the one that matches Acrobat 6.x, folks) and the importing or exporting of form data. Further, the update enhances the control of form designers via the integration of JavaScript support. For more information on the update or to download a free trial version, check out the Jaws PDF Web site.

This week’s other major product update comes from Osaka, Japan. Recosoft Corporation, a developer of PDF file conversion tools and cross platform Macintosh and Windows file format conversion solutions, has started shipping PDF2Office Personal v3.0 and PDF2Office Standard v3.0. While the personal product converts PDF documents into Word documents, the brand-spanking-new PDF2Office Standard allows users to open PDF documents directly in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. Full release notes can be found on the Recosoft Web site.

For conversion to PDF, though, you might like to check out Zevrix Solutions’ BatchOutput beta. This add-on to Adobe InDesign is designed to streamline document printing and export to PDF via automation. Product information and a copy of the beta software is available on the Zevrix Web site.

That’s it for this week! Until next time…
