Adobe has released the usual quartely updates of Acrobat:

Both versions features securtiy updates and bug fixes. In Acrobat 11 more bugs are fixed.

There are also new versions of Reader.

Callas pdfToolbox 7.5 released

Callas has released Version 7.5 of pdfToolbox. Users of Version 7 can download the new version here for free.

The new version contains new features and also many bug fixes. One new feature is the possibility to measure the effective total ink coverage in a cutom area and a check if a page has objects using transparency.

Update to Acrobat 11.0.09

The Update to Acrobat 11.0.09 for Macintosh and Windows brings some new features (beside the usual bug fixes):

A long list of recently opend PDFs can be displayed a list or page thumbnails. Sorting by file name, file size and date is possible and can be predefined in the options menu (upper right).

I prefer the list view since it’s faster and one can see more files. By hovering the mouse over an entry a preview of the pages (you can click through the pages) is displayed!

The same view is available in the “Recent Files” section of the free Acrobat.com service which is accessed by cloud.acrobat.com now.

In addition sharing the PDF documents used on the desktop with the Adobe Reader Mobile is very easy.

Version 1.7 has new features like comparing font styles, the creation of a redline report, combing of multiple documents, comparison with a text in the clipboard (e.g. from an email) as well as a statistic feature.
