Why can't I select text in a document?

I scanned and saved a check. I am trying to select text in order to highlight it. Normally when I run the OCR feature on a document it allows me to then use the text select feature. But for some reason all I can do is make a box around the text that I am trying to select. check from CC.JPG I deselec...

Can I unlock a locked document? SOLVED

I've never had this before. Our accountant sent me a file with a lock on it.

lock on PDF doc.jpg
lock on PDF doc.jpg (20.68 KiB) Viewed 431 times

Am I unable to unlock it? What I want to do is run OCR on the document, not make any changes. Or is it locked purposely so that I can only view it?

Using PDF-XChange Editor Plus Version 8.0 build 336.0. I have to print a document on letterhead, but the first line of the document is too high and prints over my letterhead. I need to add an inch to the top margin of my PDF document without changing any other characteristics. I went to Document>Mor...

Is there a way to display page numbers in a document?

This may have been asked before. Often a document will have page numbers but there are introductory pages or blank pages inserted in an insurance policy for example. So the page numbers printed on the document itself are incorrect. Right now the only way to see the page number is to go to Print,>Cur...

Re: How do I use the side scroll feature?

Thank you for your reply. I upgraded to version 8 but I think my problem is lack of horsepower. This tablet is limping along with 2GB of memory and a 1.80 GHz processor. I am guessing that scrolling through that many pages requires more resources than this tablet can provide. It's not something I fr...

How do I use the side scroll feature?

I use PDF-Xchange Editor version 7.0 on a Lenovo ThinkPad tablet PC. If I'm reading a very large document and I want to scroll quickly through dozens or even hundreds of pages, I thought I could grab that square along the righthand side scroll bar and move it up and down. scroll.PNG But no matter wh...

How do I save a file after rotating it? SOLVED

This should be a very simple procedure. I rotate a PDF file, use Save As and give it a different name from the original. But when I open it, it is not rotated. What am I doing wrong?

Boxes don't allow me to put a checkmark or X in them.

I'm using PDF-Xchange Editor Plus version 7.0 with Windows 10. My insurance agent emailed me a PDF questionnaire with check boxes. I'm trying to figure out how to put a checkmark or an X in the boxes as I have done with other PDF documents, such as those from the IRS. Is this a limitation of the que...

Re: I need a product that turns pages with a tap

Stefan, Yes, my settings are identical but I have figured out the problem. Single tapping the screen works fine when I open the file and leave it the original size. But the letters are too small to read that way, so I expand the image on my screen. Curiously, double tapping still works with the imag...

Re: I need a product that turns pages with a tap

I appreciate the help and suggestion. I uninstalled and reinstalled PDF - XChange Editor Plus version 7.0 build 327.0 and have the same results in full screen mode: two taps turns back a page and one tap does nothing. In fact I can't even advance pages by swiping. Maybe it's a limitation of my Lenov...

Re: I need a product that turns pages with a tap

Well, indeed the double tap turns back a page in full screen mode, but the single tap does nothing. At least that's the case with my Lenovo ThinkPad 2 tablet PC.

Re: PDF-XChange Editor Plus on two devices?

Thank you. I am the only user of both devices. I attempted to install PDF-XChange Editor Plus on my tablet PC and I get the prompt to enter my serial number. I have the .xcvault file, but no serial number. How do I find it?

PDF-XChange Editor Plus on two devices?

With the paid version, can I install it on two devices? I already have PDF-XChange Editor Plus on my laptop, but I would like to install it on my tablet PC as well. Do I need to purchase a separate license?
