Stamp not visible under cursor when zoomed in

Open a document, zoom in to 200% or more and select a stamp. In PDF-XChange Editor v8.0.343 (portable) the stamp is attached to the mouse cursor and visible. Unfortunately in v9.0.352 (portable) the stamp is no longer visible at 200% or more. Is it me or a bug?

Permanent activation in v9 portable?

I upgraded to version 9 of the portable edition. I activated my license successfully, but after I exit PDFXEdit.exe and relaunch it I have to activate it again. The same goes for the offline activation. I generated an ‘Activation.response’ file, but each time I open and close PDFXEdit.exe I have to ...

Disable Export Comments to Data File... if a PDF has no comments

If you open a PDF file without comments it’s still possible to ‘Export Comments to Data File...’. This makes no sense, it should be grayed out, like in Acrobat.

Re: removing comment creation time?

I did a simple test with a PDF with comments: 1. I exported all comments to a data file. 2. I ran the above script to change the author’s name and creation date and exported all comments to a data file. 3. I compared both FDF files with Beyond Compare and I noticed that the script rewrites a lot of ...

Re: removing comment creation time?

I also often work at ‘ungodly hours’. Due to the corona hassle a lot of people work at home, and therefore I hardly get print outs of manuscripts anymore.

Disappearing annotation if moved between two pages using arrow keys

I noticed something weird. If you move an annotation (Arrow, Text Box, what ever) with the arrow keys (cursor movement keys) between two pages the annotation disappears into a black hole. It’s pure magic! The annotation is still there in the Comments List but in the document itself it’s invisible. B...

Re: Word frequency

For a simple word count you can use the JaveScript Console: Ctrl+J. Enter:

Code: Select all

var cnt=0;
for (var p = 0; p < this.numPages; p++) cnt += getPageNumWords(p);
app.alert("There are " + cnt + " words in this file.");
Click Run.

Same here, using the portable edition on Win7. In the PDF-XChange Editor Version History I read: “Fixed issues with launching multiple copies/instances of the portable editor.” I assume something went wrong here, because I never had this problem in earlier builds.

This is so annoying because the word with the extra symbol/character is often not recognized. C...
