With the ways of the tech world going 64-bit, we’re pretty excited about our newest utility plug-in — PDF Manipulator DC Edition.

Are you a heavy PDF user? Check out our overview video to learn how this powerful plug-in can help your company operate more efficiently:

This plug-in is compatible with:

Windows:
– Win 8/10
– FileMaker 14 and 15, 32-bit and 64-bit
– Adobe Acrobat DC

Mac:
– Mac OS X 10.10 / 10.11
– FileMaker 14, 32-bit and 64-bit
– FileMaker 15, 64-bit
– Adobe Acrobat DC

So what does it do and how is it different than the original PDF Manipulator plug-in?

First off, it has been fully redesigned for more efficient processing and optimized for 64-bit and Adobe Acrobat DC. Second, we have expanded the Mac plug-in’s capabilities to achieve parity with its Windows counterpart for enhanced consistency when doing cross-platform development.

Just like the original, this powerful plug-in provides a bidirectional data exchange between FileMaker® and Adobe® Acrobat Pro. It can:

– Insert or extract data between PDF form fields and FileMaker
Extract text content and metadata from a PDF document directly into your FileMaker solution, eliminating the need to hand key information
– Once the data is in FileMaker, you can search through a PDF’s content and determine what page of the document the searched content appears on
Combine and delete multiple PDF documents into a single PDF from within FileMaker Pro
Insert any number of PDF pages anywhere into an existing PDF document
Delete individual pages or a range of pages from a PDF
Browse for a document from inside FileMaker
Access, open, and save PDFs to file folders

We’re also very excited to announce that this plug-in’s release marks PCI’s transition from downloaded zipped files to installer packages. PDF Manipulator DC is the first of PCI’s plug-ins to feature an installer package for both Mac and Windows downloads, making it even easier to install, register, and uninstall the plug-in.

If you are a current PDF Manipulator customer and wish to upgrade to PDF Manipulator DC, you can do so at a 35% discount for the first year. There are no scripting rewrites needed to convert from PDF Manipulator to PDF Manipulator DC.

Productive Computing, Inc. Releases PDF Manipulator Plug-in for Macintosh

February 6th, 2004

San Diego, CA – February 6, 2004 – Productive Computing, Inc. announces the release of the PDF Manipulator Plug-in for the Macintosh operating system. This plug-in allows you to exchange data between FileMaker Pro and Adobe Acrobat PDF files that have embedded fields. You first create a PDF file with fields (requires full version of Adobe Acrobat) then within a script calling the PDF Manipulator Plug-in, you can move data back and forth between FileMaker and the PDF file. The plug-in allows you to easily create a customized PDF for each record in your database based off of a single PDF file you use as a template. Another feature included in the plug-in allows you to extract field data from the completed PDF and insert it back into FileMaker. All of this is possible without using Adobe FDF files or other complex data exchange methods.

Why would you want to have fields in a PDF? The power of embedded fields within a PDF gives the user the ability to add, edit and store personalized data directly in the PDF file. This is useful for filling out forms (as used by the Internal Revenue Service for tax forms) and distributing them in an easy and secure format that is accepted worldwide. PDF fields also allow you to build calculations, drop down boxes and more for complex and flexible data manipulation.

Windows version of the PDF Manipulator Plug-in is also available.

Productive Computing, Inc. is one of the Partner Level members of the FileMaker Solutions Alliance, a 2000 member organization of professional FileMaker pro developers. The company specializes in custom database design and FileMaker Pro plug-in development.
