Pretty Darn Fabulous! Discover the World's Most Powerful PDF Office Suite

WordPerfect® Office is considered the world's first "PDF office suite" with built-in features to open, edit and publish PDF documents. That's right—WordPerfect Office lets you open PDF files, edit them and save them back to any of the 60+ file formats WordPerfect supports, or publish to PDF for sharing. These built-in tools save Corel customers hundreds of dollars every year because make it possible to work with PDFs without buying Adobe® Acrobat®.

WordPerfect Office developers have been designing PDF publishing tools since the format became the de facto standard for electronic document sharing. Over the years these tools have evolved from the bare essentials like Publish to PDF to sophisticated and powerful features that let users import PDFs to repurpose the text and graphics.

Here are the PDF Tools Available in WordPerfect Office X5

What's New 
WordPerfect Office's PDF capabilities have evolved yet again with the addition of Nuance PaperPort 12 SE. PaperPort combines easy-to-use scanning tools with powerful PDF creation, editing and annotation features. Yes, you read that right—you can now annotate PDF files by adding sticky-notes, highlighting, freehand lines and arrows.

PaperPort lets you scan and transform mountains of hard-copy documents into searchable PDFs. Even if the document you need has been archived in a box in the basement, you can still scan it and add it to your electronic library. This is the green movement in action: scan all of your hard copy documents, spreadsheets, slide shows/presentations, photographs and other records, recycle them properly, then keep the electronic versions.

The Annotation ribbon in the Image View window gives you quick access to the annotation tools.

The All-In-One Search pane allows you to search through multiple folders for related PDF files.

The Page ribbon in the Image View window has tools for correcting problems with pages and images.
