Update improves speed, lowers memory usage
Qoppa Software has released PDF Studio 6.10, an update to its Java-based PDF management and editing utility. The upgrade includes a new PDF reader and parser engine, said to be faster while using less memory. A new screenshot tool lets users select a page area with a lasso, then copy the image to the clipboard, or export it to a file.
Users also gain support for barcodes, and more batch options. The latter enable cropping multiple documents simultaneously, or changing margins for the crop, bleed, trim, or art boxes. New batch preflighting capabilities verify PDF/X compliance.
The program has lastly been improved to manage IDs and certificates for digital signatures, and use cloud annotation when marking up architectural drawings. PDF Studio 6.10 requires Mac OS X 10.4, and is available in a standard version priced at $60, or a Pro edition which costs $95.
