Appligent Launches AppendPDF Desktop EditionDrag-and-drop standalone desktop tool for building PDF documents (January 10, 2005)
Appligent, Inc., (www.appligent.com), the leading provider of Portable Document Format (PDF)-related software solutions, today announced the introduction of AppendPDF Desktop Edition, a standalone application for building customized PDF documents from a collection of files with professional publishing features such as personalizing cover pages and a dynamically generating table of contents. Based on Appligents high performance SPDF libraries, AppendPDF DE is easy to use and runs independently on the users desktop rather than as a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat or on a file server.
AppendPDF DE provides a simple drag-anddrop interface for selecting and sorting the files to be appended together. Users can easily specify which pages to include from the source documents and the location of cover and table of contents pages. Since is a stand alone application the user is not required to have Adobe Acrobat Professional or standard Edition installed.
AppendPDF DE includes support for XML parameter files that control the operation of the application which can be saved for later use. This automates recurring jobs and allows the desktop application to be used as a front end for Appligents command line server-based AppendPDF Pro application. In addition, AppendPDF DE also supports linearized PDF, which enables a user to view the first page of a PDF document while it is still being downloaded from the Internet. If a user decides the information needed is on page 25, the user can quickly link to it while the download process continues in the background.
?This is Appligents first effort in its initiative to make its robust PDF processing technology available directly to end users, and is driven by increased demand from customers seeking top performance PDF tools without relying on server-based software, said Virginia Gavin, Appligents president. ?Too often end users need a solution for generating lengthy PDF reports but are constrained from installing applications on the file server.
AppendPDF DE is a standalone desktop application that runs in a windows environment on multiple platforms. AppendPDF DE is available for Windows NT/2000/XP, Red Hat Linux and Mac OS X. Pricing is $399.00 per user. A 30-day trial version of AppendPDF Desktop Edition is available for download at www.appligent.com.
