What’s more, Qoppa has implemented a new tile based rendering approach that improves the user experience when working with graphically intensive PDF documents and much more. PDF Studio 8’s new text model delivers enhancements in the way text is extracted, selected,and marked up in the application:
Text extraction and selection now support column detection in documents with multi-column page layout such as articles, magazines, and other publications. The new cursor-based selection and highlight tool follows the natural order of text within pages and handle selection across columns. An alternate rectangular selection mode is also available as a fall back to when selecting non-consecutive text on a page.
PDF Studio 8 offers new graphical skin options to choose from when customizing the appearance of the application, including the Substance and the Nimbus look and feel. Professionals in the print, graphics, and construction industry will also enjoy the new Pan and Zoom tool which allows zooming inside high-resolution documents and moving around a page while keeping a view of the overall page on screen, says Gerald Holmann, Qoppa Software president.
Responding to user needs, Qoppa Software has added many other significant enhancements to PDF Studio 8, including the ability to remove watermarks, headers and footers; an advanced undo function; a window cascade / tile function; and the option to save a PDF document as linearized for fast viewing over the web.
