1. PDF Viewer
There are a variety of view modes that don’t just make your reading experience better but even let you preview PDFs well for various other tasks. More specifically, the viewer lets you interact with PDFs conveniently . The view modes include the Collapse View, Small Multiview, Medium Multiview, and Single Multiview.
2. Rotate PDFs
You might come across a situation where the orientation of the pages of your PDF isn’t right? Would you leave the PDF as it is? This can impair your viewing experience as well as create hurdles for further processing. With Advanced PDF Manager, you can select an individual PDF page or a complete PDF document and then change the rotation as per your liking. As you can see from the screenshot below, all 9 pages of a PDF have been rotated.
In case, you want to rotate individual pages, you can select the Small Multiview, then select an individual page and rotate it.
3. Merge and Split PDFs
You can combine several PDFs into one single document in a hassle-free manner. Not just that, you can even separate a set of pages into independent PDF files.
4. Change The Order of PDF Pages
As you can see from the screenshot below, when you open a PDF in Advanced PDF Manager (and change its view), all the pages are arranged number-wise. The significance of this is that you can rearrange the order of PDFs any which way you want by just dragging the pages back and forth. Rest assured, that the numbering would not change. This way you will be able to keep a track of changes i.e. where you have moved a particular page.
5. Password Protect
There are times when you might not want to give access to a PDF document to everyone. Let’s say it’s a confidential bank document that you only want an intended person to see. In that case, you can select the document and password protect it. You can then email it to the intended person and share the password either verbally or via text message.
