Work Smarter With PDFs

Whether you know the tools you rely on the most or are just getting started with Nitro Pro, customizing your Home Tab to reflect your Favorite Tools couldn’t be easier.

First, open Nitro Pro and navigate to the right-most section titled Favorite Tools and click Add Tools.


Nitro offers up some of the most popular options in an easy-to-find Popular Tools drop-down menu. This may be a good place to start if you’re trying to hone in on common tools.


If you’re already a Nitro whiz and know the tools specific to your workflow, you can start exploring in the All Tools drop-down menu.


Highlight your choice tool in the Choose a Tool field, and then click the arrow to transfer it to the Favorite Tools field. Select up to five, and then click OK.


Finally, watch them magically appear in your Home Tab under Favorite Tools—ready to make your life easier.


Before you spend any more time clicking through tabs to find your favorite tool, take a minute to pick your top five and drop them directly in the Home Tab. What could be simpler than that? We know your workflows differ, so we are making sure your solution is customized to maximize your productivity and satisfaction.
