I work in construction, developing technical solutions, and receive most of my input data in the form of PDF drawings. I used to have a copy of PDF Creator which included review and edit tools that genuinely allowed me to mark-up drawings with my ideas and issue them for discussion. In particular these tools included the ability to measure dimensions using the scale of the particular drawing, and to include scaled dimension arrows. This was a very useful capability of the programme.
When PDF Creator was changed to become essentially just printer software, it lost these tools and I decided to buy PDF Architect assuming that it would have the full set of editing tools. I should have checked more thoroughly before buying, as I am disappointed to find the editing and review tools are very basic and do not include any recognition of drawings scales or dimensioning tools. I feel that I have wasted my company’s money. I cannot imagine why these tools are not included, since pdfforge clearly have them available, and they are so useful.
Does anyone have this frustration and do you know if these tools are still available with pdfforge. Alternatively does anyone know of any other software that would include these tools without paying the extortionate annual licence fee for a full-blown version of Adobe?
