A comprehensive app for creating or reading PDF files, splitting or changing their layout, as well as encrypting or assigning digital signatures
The reason PDF is such a popular format is due to its flexibility, as it can store images, text, tables, drawings and other types of content in a single document.
When you want to make the most of all the perks of this format, you need to find a specialized app, such as PDF ShapingUp.
User-friendly and feature-packed utility
The interface is straightforward, and all the functions are neatly organized, so they are easily located by novices and experts alike. You can start discovering its advantages by opening a PDF file, creating one from scratch or converting other files to PDF.
Once the source document is loaded, you can take the next step and apply some modifications, depending on the actions you are interested in.
Insert new objects or modify existing ones
One of the benefits of using PDF ShapingUp is that you can modify your source document by tampering with the orientation, dimensions or a number of layers. You can remove attachments, fonts, bookmarks, annotations or form fields, all with only a few mouse clicks.
Additionally, you can insert custom elements, such as images, texts or barcodes. In terms of form fields, the app supports text areas, buttons, checkboxes, scrollable list boxes or drop-down combo boxes.
If you want to work with vectors, the app allows you to add lines, squares, circles, arcs or pies to your PDF file.
Support for multiple encryption types
Once you are pleased with the contents of your document, you can start looking for ways to protect it against unauthorized access.
If you prefer passwords, you can choose one of the encryption methods provided by the utility, namely 40-bit RC4, 128-bit RC4, 128-bit AES or 256-bit AES. You can manually specify the restrictions that should be enforced, along with the user and owner passwords.
Add personalized digital signatures
Adding digital signatures is also supported, meaning that you need to select the certificate file, and then enter the identity password, the container field name or the reason for signing.
All in all, PDF ShapingUp is a powerful solution that can meet the requirements of all types of users, no matter their skill level.
