Nitro Pro 7 handles PDFs masterfully

Nitro Pro 7 has hit the streets, and along with it come a host of nifty new features and a completely revamped look and feel.

Nitro Pro 7's interface has been completely redesigned with the ribbon-style navigation of Microsoft Office 2010. If you're familiar with ribbon tabs, then zipping around Nitro should be a breeze. On the other hand, if you're new to this style of navigation, it could take some time to get acquainted. The top-level tabs include File, Home, Edit, Review, Forms, Protect, and Help. Click on any one to reveal a row of buttons below it. It's all pretty intuitive, and each tool is accompanied by an icon, which makes for an enjoyably straightforward experience.

As for the guts of the program, Nitro Pro 7 offers all of the functionality you would expect from a complete PDF package. It makes it very easy to create, convert, insert, edit, review, secure, and sign PDF files. Plus, it supports Microsoft DMS, comes with a Web browser plug-in, can show or hide OCG layers, and can redact text, images, and pages securely.

The convert function works perfectly, allowing you to convert batches of PDFs to Word or Excel files, images, or even plain text. There's also a Stamp Signature tool, which captures, stores, and overlays your handwritten signature on PDF files, and even password-protects your saved signatures so other users can't gain access.

Overall, we think Nitro Pro 7 provides just about everything you could ask for from an all-in-one PDF solution. With its rich feature set and intuitive interface, it makes simple PDF manipulation a snap, and it gives you the power to add stamps, watermarks, and security to your documents.
