Calculating Form Fields in PDFescape

At Red Software, we constantly receive requests for feature updates and improvements. One of the most common requests is for "Simplified field notation" support. Our free PDF editor, PDFescape, has had built in calculation support for some time, allowing addition, multiplication, averaging, mininmum, and maximum calculations.

Today, we're proud to announce support for "Simplified field notation", allowing custom formulas and more advanced PDF form field calculations. With this update, even simple scripts which use the advanced "Custom JavaScript Calculation" / "Custom Calculation Script" method will work properly in PDFescape.
