Nuance PDF Reader is a unique piece of software that allows you to read, organise and manage all of your PDF documents that you could have obtained from the internet or from a colleague at work. These types of files are used frequently on the internet because it’s very easy to customize them and are often used by businesses for invoices and reports that can be sent to customers and don’t need to be edited by the recipient. There are many different applications to do this job but this offers a lot of unique features that we’ll talk about on this page.
Why use PDF Files?
There are many different advantages of using PDF files in general. The biggest one that we can think of is that it’s cross platform. They can be opened on all operating systems – whether it be Windows, Mac or even Linux. There are many tools for all three of these that will do the job, which is why it’s so universally used. The problem with others that are sometimes used, such as the Microsoft Word format (.doc) is that not everyone has this installed, meaning not everyone would be able to read it. When it comes to sharing files to peers and onto the internet, one thing that you’re always going to have to think about is the people who are going to need to open it. If they aren’t able to do so, then sharing it really is a waste of time. At least this way you’ll have the guarantee that everyone will be able to open it with a free tool such as this.
Another benefit of PDF files is that they can be protected with various methods of security. Sometimes you don’t want everyone to be able to open it, maybe if it contains personal or private data that not everyone should be able to open. In some document types such as raw TXT information you won’t have this option but one of the best abilities given by this format is the option to set a password. By using this, it means that only people with the correct credentials will be able to open it. This is a very secure method as it’s very difficult to bypass the system and get around the protection so you can feel relatively safe when using this technique. Of course it’s always better to make sure the correct person gets the file in the first place instead of just distributing it to people who shouldn’t have access to it in the first place. You can do much more than just set a password, too. If you really want to add extra security, you could use data encryption to add a layer that will make sure no reader can use it without your permission. It really does depend on the type of data that you want to store, it may not be necessary to mess around with this level of security if it isn’t very important in the first place.
One thing you’re going to be looking at from any type of document is that it be customizable. You don’t want a document full of just text and nothing else because this just won’t give your readers the impression you want. This is yet another advantage of this file type, you can use any combination of images and text that you want and build it in any way you want. It’s the most customizable type you’ll be able to find and has definitely stood the test of time because of it – these have been around for many years and continue to be used today and will probably do so for long into the future. Because of the fact that the files are uneditable after they have been exported, it means that you can be sure the contents of it are exactly as the author intended it to be, which is why they can also be used in court cases and much more. PDF files are the best kind that can be used for documents and we recommend that you do so.
