Align PDF Form Fields to a Grid
April 08, 2021 09:23 PM
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.

Automatic page number links
April 08, 2021 09:48 PM
The Create Page Links tool lets you automatically turn all numbers on an area of the page into active hyperlinks that will link each number to the corresponding page in the document. It’s ideal for making sections of documents, like the table of contents and index, more intelligent and easier to use. It’s simply a matter of selecting the part of the page or range of pages you want to scan, and then running the tool to turn them into active links .

Repetitive tasks involving one or several documents can be automated with the Batch Processing tool.
Calculate Field Data
April 09, 2021 12:54 AM
Nitro Pro supports field calculations using several methods. The built-in calculation formulas are an easy means for creating simple, and quite restricted, field calculations. You can also use Simplified Field Notation and JavaScripts, although these methods are much more sophisticated and require some programming knowledge. If your calculation needs are limited to summing or averaging data, you can use the built-in formulas without having to worry about programming.
Certificate security
April 09, 2021 12:56 AM
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.

Compare PDF Files
April 12, 2021 12:52 AM
Reporting all the modifications made to a document is a difficult task if changes weren’t tracked during the editing process. Comparing the new document with its original version is the easiest way to pinpoint every single change that was made. To compare two versions of the same document, convert them to PDF in Nitro Pro and use the Compare tool to identify any differences in text, images, and even annotations.
Copy and paste JavaScript
April 12, 2021 05:06 PM
JavaScripts can be copied and pasted from one field or other location in a PDF document or between two documents. If you examine PDF files for learning JavaScript programming, you can browse PDF files containing scripts, copy a script from a document you download from the Internet, and paste the code into the JavaScript Editor in your document. With a little code modification, you can quickly add scripts to your own files.

Create Bookmarks Automatically
April 12, 2021 05:12 PM
The Auto Build Bookmarks feature can totally automate the creation of bookmarks in your PDFs, and with very little effort greatly enhance the usability of the PDFs you publish. Use it to auto-generate bookmarks based on the font styles (headings, chapters, etc.) and the layout used in your PDFs. You can also use it to build bookmarks based on the textual and numerical content of the PDF files by using the text masking and wildcards features.

Create a Bookmark in a PDF

You can create bookmarks by selecting text on a page and making it a bookmark, or by adding an untitled bookmark and then setting and naming it in the Bookmarks pane.
Create a Check Box Field in a PDF
April 12, 2021 05:27 PM
In almost all cases you should use unique field names when creating form fields. If you use the same name for a field, like a text field, data typed in the field box is replicated for all fields with the same name. The exception to the rule is when creating check box and radio button fields. If you want one check box or radio button in a group to be unchecked as another check box or radio button is checked, you use the same field name. Both these field types have an option for adding an export value. When you create fields with the same name, you use different export values to distinguish one choice from another.
Create a Combo box field in a PDF
April 12, 2021 05:29 PM
Combo Boxes provide users a drop down menu, and only a single response can be selected from this menu. You can add menu items for combo boxes via the Options category in the field’s Properties.
Create a Text Field in a PDF
April 13, 2021 10:46 PM
The most common field type on PDF forms is the text field. Text fields permit respondents to add alpha text and/or numeric values. You can format text fields in a number of different ways to ensure fields are completed properly. You can add custom format scripts, validate data, assign actions, and perform calculations on text fields.
