eCopy PDF Pro Office detects previous versions and components and prompts for your confirmation to remove them. This product can co-exist with the Nuance PDF Reader. You must have administrator rights on the computer to install and activate the program. You need web access for activation.
5thNK e-Delivers so this next section is for folks who purchased a disk
1. Insert the CD-ROM or DVD in the appropriate drive
The installation program will start automatically. If it does not, locate your CD-ROM or DVD drive in Microsoft® Windows® Explorer and double-click the converter's AutoRun.exe file. Select a language for installation. The InstallShield® Wizard will appear. (If you have downloaded the program from the Nuance web site, double-click its AutoRun.exe file.)
2. License and Serial Number
5thNK e-Delivers The Product Key to you. 5thNK registers your software.
Your job is to Activate it.
3. Location and Setup Type
The installer offers a default location for the program. Accept it or define a different one. Select Complete or Custom Setup. Choose Custom to accept or decline installation of the PDF unlocking component. Choose Custom also to enable or disable the integration of PDF Converter and PDF Create in other programs or to control installation of certain program components. By default, all the programs offered in the PDF Pro Office Integration panels of the InstallShield Wizard will be enabled. (You can change integration settings later by choosing the program under Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel and clicking Change and then Repair.) Do not install the product to the Windows installation directory, to other system folder or mapped network drives.
You will be invited to activate the product at the end of installation. Please ensure that web access is available. Provided your serial number is found at its storage location and has been correctly entered, no user interaction is required and no personal information is transmitted. If you do not activate the product at installation time, you will be invited to do this each time you invoke the program. PDF Pro Office creates PDF files with a trial watermark on each page if you use it without activation. If you ignore the first five activation prompts, you must activate products separately and manually - a much more time-consuming process. You will be allowed to re-install the program a reasonable number of times without having re-activation problems, because un-installation includes a de-activation step. The serial number is needed for reinstallation and web access is needed for de-activation and re-activation. The Enterprise version of this product does not require activation and is designed for network installation. For registration and activation troubleshooting see the Nuance Knowledge Base at http://nuance.custhelp.com/.
PDF Pro Office and other Nuance products
Previous versions of PDF Create and/or PDF Converter products might be installed on your computer with the different versions of OmniPage and PaperPort. The installer of PDF Pro Office detects previous versions of these PDF products and upgrades them. You can skip upgrading the PDF Converter component during the installation process to keep the previous version PDF Converter, but it does not cooperate with the latest version of PDF Pro Office. The previous PDF Create has to be updated with its newest version, as included in PDF Pro Office. Two versions of PDF Pro Office and PDF Create cannot be installed together.
Downloading Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework
Please read the appropriate section of the System Requirements to learn why you may need Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework.
Cloud based storage support
Microsoft Office compatibility
Conversion to different editable formats can be performed whether or not the target applications are installed on your system. However, to use the results, you need the applications associated to the target file types you want to use (for example Microsoft Word XP (SP3), Microsoft Word 2003 (SP3) for .doc files, the same versions of Microsoft Excel for .xls files, Microsoft Office 2007 (SP1), Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013 for DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files and Corel WordPerfect X3 and X4 for .wpd files).
Downloading a Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack
If a Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack is installed on your computer, Office 2007 output files can be opened in earlier Office versions. This software is downloadable from the Microsoft site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en. This component is not necessary for saving or converting files into Office 2007 formats.
Adobe® Flash Player
To view, edit or create PDF portfolios you should have or install Adobe® Flash Player.
Document Management System (DMS) support in the Enterprise Edition
Scanning to PDF documents is improved in PDF Pro Office. The scanner support is exactly the same as in other Nuance products such as OmniPage or PaperPort.
Install your scanner before you install PDF Pro Office
Your scanner must be working independently of the program prior to connecting it to the program. Scanners to be used by the product should be installed according to the scanner manufacturer’s specifications. Please consult the documentation that came with your scanner for information.
TWAIN, WIA and ISIS drivers
PDF Pro Office supports scanners that are controlled by TWAIN, WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) or ISIS scanner drivers. PDF Pro Office supports any fully TWAIN- WIA- or ISIS-compliant scanner or other input devices that can supply at least a binary (black-and-white) image in a supported resolution (200 to 600 dots per inch).
Scanner Setup Wizard
PDF Pro Office includes a Scanner Setup Wizard that will automatically test your scanner for use with the product. It is launched automatically the first time you try to scan images to PDF document. You can also launch it from the menu Edit/Preferences/General/Scanner Setup. The scanning process can be driven either by the UI provided by the scanner manufacturer or in UI-less mode with pre-defined settings (One Touch scan). For more details please read the appropriate section of the product Help.
Since scanners change frequently, please refer to http://support.nuance.com/compatibility/ for the most recent information about scanner compatibility. If you are having problems with your scanner, please contact the scanner manufacturer for assistance. Often, scanner manufacturers maintain web sites that provide the latest scanner drivers, answers to frequently asked questions, and other information about their products.
PDF Converter Professional offers two working modes – PDF View (the interface offered up to now) and the new Advanced Edit. This allows word processing type editing capabilities within the PDF using a set of tools similar to those in Microsoft Word. Finalizing your advanced edits solidifies the changes within the PDF document.
New connectors allow files to be opened from popular cloud services, such as DropBox and Evernote. Modified results can be returned to these sites. It is also possible to print PDF files to the PaperPort desktop application from the Nuance PDF Create printer and from the PDF Create Assistant.
This new cloud-based service opens the door to multi-user editing of PDF files, document sharing, screen sharing, chat and voice conferencing.
Ability to export data from single forms to additional file types, such as XFDF, XML and TXT. Also to export data from multiple forms with the same data field sets to XML and CSV files that can be opened by Microsoft Excel or similar spreadsheet programs; each form is represented by a row and each form field by a column. Field labels in the forms become the header row texts for the spreadsheet columns.
Enter notes onto PDF files by dictating them instead of using the keyboard. Use your microphone to transmit dictation to a Dragon Notes server in the Cloud and receive back the written note into your PDF file.
The user interface language can now be changed inside the program. PDF Converter Professional can handle PDF files with content in a very wide range of languages and alphabets, providing your system and keyboard supports them – Thai language support is introduced.
The previous Select Text and Select Object are replaced by a single Select tool that performs both functions, depending what is clicked. The same has happened with the Touchup tool and the Typewriter tool. General use toolbars installed by default with the ability to turn on and customize all additional options to the toolbar.
Direct PDF files via e-mail to a fax machine using an address predefined in an exchange server, according to settings made under program preferences.
Create signature and custom stamps in addition to the supplied set by right-clicking on a selected area. Stamps can now be applied to all pages of a document in one move.
Ability to print to the PDF printer from a MS application so the file opens in PDF Converter Professional without having to save it locally. Further files can be printed with the ability to append more pages to the document.
Highlight not only text blocks but page areas; optionally apply customized file open/save dialog boxes; in addition to optimizing PDF files, they can now also be reduced; auto-orient and auto-straighten pages when scanning to PDF, preview PDF files in Outlook, specify a page range when printing a document to PDF.
Additional Enterprise features
Ease of PDF/A file creation through the File > Save As menu. A PDF/A Compliance checker allows files saved to the PDF/A file type to be checked for full compliance with the various levels of PDF/A standards, identifying non-compliant items. Compliance notification is provided whenever a PDF/A compliant document is opened.
The Nuance PDF toolbar in Internet Explorer now allows access to the same set of Document Management Systems as from the program itself. Save to DMS support from within Portfolios. DMS support is extended to EMC Documentum and Xerox DocuShare.
Assemble groups of files in one format and automatically convert them to another. Valid input is TIFF (any flavor) or PDF (any flavor), output is TIFF, PDF (image-only) or Searchable PDF.
When scanning to PDF, multiple inboxes can now be monitored, to better cope with distributed scanning; the folders to monitor are set under preferences.
PDF documents secured under digital rights management using FileOpen document controls are supported.
PDF Pro Office can be configured for Active Directory, SMS and Citrix deployment. Network and server deployment requires an OLP (Open License Program) agreement with Nuance. For deployment instructions please review the "Network Install Guide". For assistance with deployment, a maintenance agreement is required.
