Support For Calculating Form Fields & Password Protected PDF Files Added

Today PDFescape has received a number of improvements to its free PDF editing software.

First, PDFescape now features support for PDF form fields which calculate values. This improvement not only allows users filling out PDF forms to have a more enriched experience when filling out forms, it allow will allow PDF form distributors to create and email out PDF forms which allow for fewer mistakes when filling a PDF form.

Here is a sample PDF form which demonstrates this new feature. At this time, PDFescape supports all of the standard PDF calculations including sum, average, product, min, and max.

Second, PDFescape now supports the opening of PDF files which are password protected. Password protected PDF files previously had to be unencrypted prior to being opened in PDFescape. PDFescape will now prompt users when a password is required and decrypt the PDF for them.

Because we care about your privacy as much as we care about our own, all passwords submitted when decrypting a file using PDFescape are securely erased once the PDF file has been opened.

Last, but not least, frequent users of PDFescape will notice that PDFescape is now faster and more responsive, especially with large files or files with many form fields. Thanks to some PDFescape engine overhauls, the graphical user interface of our PDF editor is quicker than ever.

PDFescape: Secure Access

Registered users of PDFescape now can securely access, upload, and work with their files.

Using industry standard SSL encryption, registered users can open, edit, and download PDF files via a secure connection to our servers. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is trusted in many online matters such as online banking and online purchases.

PDFescape servers implement strict access control protocols, privacy policies, and daily Hacker Safe® scans. These policies and procedures help ensure that PDF files used on PDFescape are kept private and only accessible by you.

Coupling our current privacy and security measures with SSL deployment on the server should make PDFescape a great choice for any business or industry, even those with the strictest of privacy and security concerns.
