Why do we have to keep using PDFs, which are often annoying to deal with?

You can crypt "lock" pdf files and add network signatures to them (online bank account).

So many of my fellow engineering apprentices submit their work in .doc format 🤨🙄 Works great on their PC at home, but for the person marking the thing, not so much. Our training officer is a bit awkward and can't spell for shit so he criticises all the 'spelling mistakes' flagged up by the word processor even though they're technical terms 😣 Pritn to PDF adn _voilà_ no spellling mistkaes. Just give him a piece of digital paper with your words on it ffs!

I kinda like that they're not readily editable when it comes to final drafts or things that I don't have any intention of editing. Can't stand opening a whole clunky word processor just to read a document that shouldn't be editable in the first place. Think about it this way.. if you got a printed handout in a class or something, you wouldn't expect to be able to change it. I like that they open in programs that load pretty much instantly and there's no chance of accidentally altering it.

i will say tho.. can't stand how the line wrapping contains actual line breaks. messes things up when you copy and paste from it.

Complaining that PDFs are hard to edit is like complaining that videos, when published on for example CNpost, are hard to edit. Sure, you can technically do it, but it's really not what it was intended for.

Linus, you should know better that PDF was not meant to be edited once it was distilled. Noob! Yes, new "container" type of "editable" PDF came along and blabla, yes Adobe wants money. Anyway, if you own the original file source you should be alright as you still have it. Not owning the source... well, pay the damn price :D

You forgot to say that Adobe is the standard for the print and press industries. Back in the 80's we had to use eps files to print large format and to use the file for press, for exemple we have console cartridges, from microsoft, to convert word files to postscript for the printer, they are inserted. After pdf you not only can sent your file to any place to print... you save money a lot doing pre-press, proofs and, the one of the most important things after fonts, "color correction" Adobe RGB, Adobe Gamma that´s the magic words! Because these, you pay a premium for adobe pdf, mostely...

Here some (good) alternatives to Adobe if you want to edit PDFs (although the "edit" part doesn't really seem to be standardized, at least it doesn't feel like it, but hey, just print when you are finished to pdf (or paper) and you are good to go again): - KDE Okular (originally from Linux, but also available on Windows (Store) these days) - Foxit Reader Both are pretty good (knowing from experience), so yeah, give it a try if you want to.

I thought it was "Printable" Document format. in the sense that it's the pre-publication version of the document before it goes to mass printing, designed specifically for consistent print layouts.

I Apple was gonna be dropped somewhere, hoping for a free refresher. :) From what I remember Apple either partnered or contributed to it so they've had Adobe-levels on insight since the beginning all the way from NeXTSTEP. It was open sourced for Apple or royalty-free or some like that. It's deeply integrated with macOS, with the kittens era the golden. It's written into Quartz..or Quartz from it?--IDK, somebody will correct me but the point is that it forever has been crazy smooth and seamless, it still isn't like that in some viewers outside of Apple, let alone authoring tools. macOS itself is a pretty sick PDF author without any extra 3rd or even 1st-party (Pages, Keynote...) software It's one thing I'm really going to miss now that I'm sick of Apple's biiIIsh*t and moving away from the eco. :/

On Android there is a widget that scans to your Google Drive folder. It also creates PDFs. What I like is that the black and white is crisp, no blotches all over or other stuff. The only downside is it does not look like a document that is typed but that is only because it does not correct any waves in the page. It is great if you need a way to save a scan of a receipt or other important document that you might prefer to keep for a while. That can be tax documents that you absolutely would prefer to keep for deductions or even as evidence in an audit (should you be so unfortunate).

HAHAHA really ??, just remember when back in the days you had 1000 versions of editing programs (that were not free), i could not open something in some places because they don´t have the exact editing program you have, PDF is not for editing, PDF is to have a document that will open anywhere you want, it's purely for reliability
Davi Fiks
Davi Fiks 个月 前
Addressing the main issue he pointed, the document you do is in your editing tool, the document you deliver is in PDF, as you deliver the document you can simply delete the one you deliver and just stay with the one original one in your editing tool, you simply don´t need to edit PDF if you are well organized

Just treat PDFs as a final version. That's exactly what I do. You should then have a draft version somewhere else like a word document which has all the details you need to change, then print to PDF when you are done. If you need to make changes, makes those changes in the word document then export as a PDF again.

Like every other piece of Adobe software Acrobat is so bloated it shouldn't be legal. Just Acrobat is about the same size on disk as the entire Microsoft Office suite. I use Fox It for most things and if I really need to edit I convert files using free tools if they don't convert cleanly in Word.

pdf is literally the life of my laptop. 99% of my research documents are in pdf, whether journals, books, or my own reports and papers will always have a pdf copy. if you need to read through dozens of files and make edits all the time, I don't even care if adobe is robbing my money(btw, they are not, im not gonna pay them anything), just like LMG pays thousands for editing suite too.
