Adobe Acrobat and PDF Custom Software Development

Adobe Acrobat and Reader

We can provide solutions that become an integral part of Adobe Acrobat or where Adobe Acrobat is integrated into a solution. This can be done via plugins, scripts and calls from other applications in Windows and Mac environments. Acrobat plugins enable features to be added to the Adobe Acrobat menus, toolbars and even provide floating palettes and windows.

A lot of the non-user interface code used in plug-ins is also code compatible with the Adobe® PDF Library.

Mapsoft has extensive experience of developing with the Acrobat Software Developer Kit (SDK) and has used it in its own products as well as numerous customised developments for customers. We can even modify our own products to create a more defined solution to customers

The Adobe Acrobat SDK (Software Development Kit) is a set of tools and resources that allow developers to create custom solutions using Adobe Acrobat and PDF (Portable Document Format) technology. It includes documentation, code samples, and libraries for building applications that work with PDF documents, as well as tools for testing and debugging. With the Acrobat SDK, developers can create applications that can create, edit, and convert PDF documents, as well as add custom functionality to Adobe Acrobat. The Acrobat SDK is available for Windows and Mac operating systems. The Acrobat SDK is available for Windows and MacOS, and it includes APIs for a wide range of capabilities, including:

  • Creating and manipulating PDF files
  • Working with PDF forms
  • Adding and Extracting text and images from PDF files
  • Adding and modifying custom and existing annotations
  • Merging and splitting PDF files
  • Validating, optimizing and repairing PDF files
  • Adding Custom Digital Signatures

Developers can use the Acrobat SDK to build custom solutions for a variety of purposes, such as automating PDF-based workflows, integrating Acrobat and PDF functionality into other applications, and developing custom plug-ins and tools for Acrobat.

Adobe® PDF Library SDK for out of Acrobat PDF solutions (also server and web)

We can provide out of Acrobat PDF solutions that can be made available on server and web based environments (the cloud). We do this using the Adobe PDF library so that you can be confident that the PDF technology used is up-to-date and compatable with all PDF files in use today. The PDF files can be saved and generated in accordance with all of the PDF standards such as the standard ISO 32000 (PDF 1.7), PDF/A, PDF/X, PDF/E. PDF/UA, PDF/VT The Adobe® PDF Library is the core engine of Adobe® Acrobat® and Adobe® Reader that is also available for many platforms that Acrobat does not run on. There is also a 64bit version available for the Windows platform that can more easily be integrated into server and web platforms and .NET and ASP.NET Core interfaces available in the Datalogics licensed version. A lot of code is compatible with the plug-in part of the Acrobat SDK and so you can have an Acrobat plug-in and Server or Cloud version running off the same code base.

Mapsoft has been an OEM licensee of the Adobe® PDF Library for many years and we have extensive experience of developing with this technology using both the c++ and c# interfaces. The PDF library is an integrated part of our Engage products.
