  • Awesome. Now I'm curious _why_ the PDF format is reliable between different software environments even though word etc is not. Are the formatting and font options different or more comprehensive?

  • When reading documents I much prefer them to come in a format that means you don't accidentally edit them. Also when publishing it is normally desirable to have a format that is difficult to edit

  • You forgot to say that Adobe is the standard for the print and press industries. Back in the 80's we had to use eps files to print large format and to use the file for press, for exemple we have console cartridges, from microsoft, to convert word files to postscript for the printer, they are inserted. After pdf you not only can sent your file to any place to print... you save money a lot doing pre-press, proofs and, the one of the most important things after fonts, "color correction" Adobe RGB, Adobe Gamma that´s the magic words! Because these, you pay a premium for adobe pdf, mostely...

  • Here some (good) alternatives to Adobe if you want to edit PDFs (although the "edit" part doesn't really seem to be standardized, at least it doesn't feel like it, but hey, just print when you are finished to pdf (or paper) and you are good to go again): - KDE Okular (originally from Linux, but also available on Windows (Store) these days) - Foxit Reader Both are pretty good (knowing from experience), so yeah, give it a try if you want to.

  • I thought it was "Printable" Document format. in the sense that it's the pre-publication version of the document before it goes to mass printing, designed specifically for consistent print layouts.

  • I Apple was gonna be dropped somewhere, hoping for a free refresher. :) From what I remember Apple either partnered or contributed to it so they've had Adobe-levels on insight since the beginning all the way from NeXTSTEP. It was open sourced for Apple or royalty-free or some like that. It's deeply integrated with macOS, with the kittens era the golden. It's written into Quartz..or Quartz from it?--IDK, somebody will correct me but the point is that it forever has been crazy smooth and seamless, it still isn't like that in some viewers outside of Apple, let alone authoring tools. macOS itself is a pretty sick PDF author without any extra 3rd or even 1st-party (Pages, Keynote...) software It's one thing I'm really going to miss now that I'm sick of Apple's biiIIsh*t and moving away from the eco. :/

  • I hate it when I download pdf service manuals and I have to edit them because some pages need rotating, and then the website that hosts the pdfs locks them with a password! Arghhhh

  • So many pro PDF comments. It is so handy to print and have final copies saved as published softcopies - because it is hard to accidentally edit!

    YelrebmikkimYelrebmikkimHónapja
  • On Android there is a widget that scans to your Google Drive folder. It also creates PDFs. What I like is that the black and white is crisp, no blotches all over or other stuff. The only downside is it does not look like a document that is typed but that is only because it does not correct any waves in the page. It is great if you need a way to save a scan of a receipt or other important document that you might prefer to keep for a while. That can be tax documents that you absolutely would prefer to keep for deductions or even as evidence in an audit (should you be so unfortunate).

  • I want something exactly like PDF or better and i want it open source. Maybe google can help here. 👍😉

    Naeemul HoqueNaeemul HoqueHónapja
  • HAHAHA really ??, just remember when back in the days you had 1000 versions of editing programs (that were not free), i could not open something in some places because they don´t have the exact editing program you have, PDF is not for editing, PDF is to have a document that will open anywhere you want, it's purely for reliability

    Davi FiksDavi FiksHónapja
    • Addressing the main issue he pointed, the document you do is in your editing tool, the document you deliver is in PDF, as you deliver the document you can simply delete the one you deliver and just stay with the one original one in your editing tool, you simply don´t need to edit PDF if you are well organized

  • Just a quick addendum, back in the day, most word processing programs wouldn't even open files created in other word processing programs. Computer file has a awesome video about it from a guy who was around at the time.

    NeeboopshNeeboopshHónapja
  • Just treat PDFs as a final version. That's exactly what I do. You should then have a draft version somewhere else like a word document which has all the details you need to change, then print to PDF when you are done. If you need to make changes, makes those changes in the word document then export as a PDF again.

  • Like every other piece of Adobe software Acrobat is so bloated it shouldn't be legal. Just Acrobat is about the same size on disk as the entire Microsoft Office suite. I use Fox It for most things and if I really need to edit I convert files using free tools if they don't convert cleanly in Word.

    XeverousXeverousHónapja
    • @Xeverous yes. Bit the option to edit it is still available. I can drag the mp3 into Audacity or Vegas Pro or FL Studio and do some modifications to it. Such as change volume levels, add effects, or trim the duration. Then You can render it out into a file of your choice. With Pdf all I can do it copy and paste the content, and reedit the vector files. but I need to recreate the typeface, and formatting. Just wish that there was.more options to support editing pdfs other than adobe acrobat.

      Vitaly TomachevskiVitaly TomachevskiHónapja
    • @Vitaly Tomachevski For mp3 you actually can not so easily as this format is not open and requires to purchance a license in order to legally use the file.

      XeverousXeverousHónapja
    • So are mp3 for music, mp4 for videos, and jpeg for images. But you can still use other applications to edit them.
