VipRiser PDF Ops
Mac OS Utilities
VipRiser PDF Ops is all about getting your PDF work done.
Be aware this is not your usual end-user application. It is collection of Automator workflow steps useful for working with PDFs. This makes it incredibly powerful because you can combine it with other tools, creating complex workflows.
The workflow can be triggered as quick action in Finder, directly from the printer dialog or via virtual PDF printer (optional installation). The virtual PDF printer can be shared over the network and even supports iPrinting from iOS devices.
Beside rich set of usual actions like split (explode), merge, insert and delete pages, its speciality is to tackle the more challenging use-cases.
EXTRACT FORM FIELDS/TEXT
This functionality is great for importing data from forms or re-editing text in a word processor.
As it uses layout information to extract text, it will continue to work even when a PDF has already been flattened or re-processed.
Coupled with other workflows, you can import the CSV or XML format it produces right into Excel or database such as FileMaker.
CROP PDF PAGES
Indispensable for removing parts of a page like headers and footers and/or extracting parts of a PDF for further processing.
VipRiser can crop PDFs by changing its structure or by adjusting its CropBox.
Cropping is great way to reuse existing PDF content, such as charts or data-tables, in a new way.
TURN PDF INTO A WEB PAGE
Due to the fact a PDF needs an external app/plugin to view it, publishing it online may not always be as straightforward as one would like.
Rendering PDF as a web page eliminates this problem by transforming it into a collection of HTML, CSS and image files that any web browser can view.
Furthermore, this makes it easy to embed your PDF with other HTML-based content like within a wikis, blogs or CMS.
RENDER AS AN IMAGE
An alternative to publishing PDF as a web page is to turn in it into set of images. VipRiser offers an option to stitch resulting images together, which works great for multi-page PDFs.
DESIGNED FOR PUBLISHING WORKFLOWS
All actions where intended to be used within Automator workflows from the very start.
Great care has been taken to ensure each action is configurable, yet easy to use.
Furthermore, VipRiser PDF Ops come with its own virtual PDF printer (available separately as free download), making it into incredibly powerful tool.
