Images
Add an Image to a PDF
The Insert Image tool lets you add images to your PDF files so you don’t need to go back and edit the original source file.
Edit PDF Files
Add or edit text in a PDF
Nitro Pro includes tools so you can add new text to a PDF document, or make last-minute corrections and updates, without the need to re-open the source files in the authoring program.
Forms
Align PDF Form Fields to a Grid
With Nitro Pro, you can use grids to assist you in precisely lining up links, form fields, and other objects on a page. When turned on, the grid is visible over your PDF pages; however, grid lines will not be printed when you print your document. You can also customize the grid’s display, setting preferences such as default units, line color, spacing, and other options.
Images
Arrange Images in a PDF
The image arranging tools let you move images in front and behind other objects on the page, flip or mirror, and rotate them.

Attach Files as Annotations in a PDF
Just like attaching a paper file to another with a paperclip, the Attach File annotation tool enables you to attach electronic files to your PDFs files. Annotation attachments appear as a paperclip icon on the PDF page; reviewers can double-click the icon to open the file. You can view annotation attachments in the Commenting pane and the Attachments pane.
Edit PDF Files
Attach a File in a PDF
In addition to containing text and graphics, PDF files can contain entire files inside them as attachments. This makes exchanging sets of documents easier and more reliable. The Attachments pane provides you a central place to view, insert, delete, and export attachments.

Batch Processing PDF Files
Repetitive tasks involving one or several documents can be automated with the Batch Processing tool.
Security
Certificate security
Digital IDs let you encrypt files that can only be opened and used by people who have exchanged certificates. Certificate-based security has many advantages over password-based security: documents can be opened without the need to remember passwords, Digital IDs cannot be shared or copied easily, the one document can contain different security settings for each recipient of a file. For example, you may grant one person editing and printing privileges, while another is limited to just viewing the file.
