NiXPS has released a new version of its cross
platform XPS tools facilitating the use of XPS in
professional document management environments.

NiXPS View provides basic cross-platform XPS
viewing with powerful tools such as detailed
zoom, quick search and text selection; for full
XPS inspection on both Mac and PC. The new NiXPS
View v2.6.1 now also features PDF export, making
file exchange easy for everybody. The addition of
the PDF export feature makes NiXPS View v2.6.1
unique in the market. It is a great companion for
those users who want to take full advantage of
the built-in XPS capabilities of their desktop.

NiXPS Edit goes beyond cross-platform viewing and
brings full-fledged XPS editing to the desktop;
like object editing, inspection, document and
page manipulations and more. New for NiXPS Edit
v2.6.1 is the improved interactive text-editing
tool, which greatly simplifies text correction,
making it as easy as ‘click and correct’, and
allowing quick, last minute corrections.

“With the announcement of Windows 7, Microsoft
reaffirmed its commitment to XPS as the future of
electronic documents and printing on the Windows
platform”, says Nick De Roeck, managing director
of NiXPS NV. “XPS is a very capable, open and
safe electronic document format. With its close
ties to .NET and the Office suite, and the fact
that XPS creation and viewing comes for free with
Windows, XPS makes a lot of sense from a business

“Our desktop applications bring more value to the
user, with powerful conversion and editing
capabilities, and cross-platform support,” De
Roeck says.
