I do some test ( no gis work) by printing doc document to pdf ( Microsoft and wondershare , not foxit) and since i have a pdf editor ( serif XpagePlus 9 = XPP) i do some test with XPP .
i test wonderShare printer ( free) and then editor ( demo) . The demo version add watermark and i see I can easely remove the watermark with XpagePlus9 ! Does it mean than watermark should be use with only a pdf protected option to block any edit mode !
When open this pdf in XPP, XPP alert us that font ll be change because i think font are not put inside pdf so need to use external OS font . The rendering change a lot for text and is ugly ! Does manifold create pdf with embedding font ?
I think i read on the forum that some people want an option to export their work from manifold GIS as layers in pdf . As i can see when edit pdf generate by Wondershare Editor: the watermark is in the top layer , but I have no option ( TODO) to view work only on a selected layer in XPP . Is there pdf editor that let us edit pdf in layer mode ? Is there some pdf software editor that do that ?
most of the question can be answser by testing myselft ( todo) .. post only to share some testing done on pdf. I ll reply to myself in the future in this post !!
