The paperless office is yet to become a reality, which means print costs are a continuing issue. We look at how to be print-savvy to save paper and ink, plus when to PDF your documents instead
Step 5. Text and images can be extracted from a PDF for editing in a different application. To do so, choose either the Extract Text or Extract Images button from the Tasks menu at the top of the window. In the following step you’re able to specify where the extracted files are saved.
Step 6. While the original document is protected from changes, it is possible to annotate the PDF. Choose Add Note from the Tasks tab and click to place the crosshairs where you wish to comment. Write a note, then click the cross in the top-right corner. A small icon will appear to indicate that a comment has been made.
Step 7. Instead of adding your comments to a document, you can underline, cross out or highlight text, or even type directly on to a PDF. Nitro PDF Reader offers tools for all these functions on the Tasks tab. You can also vary the font, colour and size of any text you add to a PDF.
Step 8. If you’ve already scanned in your signature then you can easily add it to a PDF. This is useful for documents such as letters, which you’d otherwise have to print out, sign, scan in and then email. It’s possible to password-protect your signature from misuse on computers that have multiple users.
