PDFix allows you to customize both workspaces within the Preferences dialog. For example you can customize the application theme or you can set keyboard Shortcuts for any commands.

In the Help->License menu you can manage your licenses and the product version.

Application view

Application view displays the list of files on your system you’ve worked on. It is primarily designed for Batch Processing. PDFix provides batch processing commands to examine, validate, and repair PDFs in bulk.

Application Main Toolbar

Add and remove files

Click Add to add new files into the file view. To remove already listed, click onRemove.

Files view

To view the list of working files, click Files View. To view batch validation results, you can click on either the PAC View or the Clause View.

PDFix allows you to customize the File View columns within the Preferences dialog or with the right click on the file view header.

Manage and run commands

Access the Commands dialog to manage all available commands and their parameters.

Click Run Command to execute a specific command on the selected files.

Be carefull when using commands in the application view, as all changes are made directly to the file on the disk and cannot be undone!

Document view

Each PDF document can be opened in Document view. When you open multiple documents, each document opens as a new Document view window.
