Last week, the PDFelement team exhibited at SpiceWorld 2018 in Austin, Texas. The event may be over, but we’ve still got some great highlights for you in case you couldn’t make it! If you consider yourself a techie, it’s likely you’ll know about SpiceWorld. The annual conference, put on by Spiceworks, is aimed towards IT pros and tech vendors. Attendees can access everything from hands-on sessions and tutorials to networking opportunities, contests, games, and more. Most IT Pros consider it a “must” to attend. All of us at PDFelement certainly had a blast! But if you weren’t able to attend this year, it doesn’t mean you missed out on all the fun! We’ve compiled some of the best highlights from our time at SpiceWorld 2018 so readers can get the full experience of our 3 jam-packed days in Austin. Without further ado, here are some of our top highlights: Unveiling IT Robin Hood We went all out this year with our booth theme! PDFelement’s mission is to come to the rescue by cutting costs and empowering our users with the most affordable PDF editing tool on both Windows and Mac, so it only makes sense that we would get decked out in our finest Robin Hood costumes to get our message across and save the day as IT Robin Hood! We had a great time exhibiting at the event and showing off all the ways PDFelement can help you become the IT hero of your organization. Catching Up with Clients One of the most exciting aspects of the event for us was meeting so many of our clients face to face! It couldn't be more rewarding to discover that our product is making people happy. We loved the chance to meet so many of you and find out how PDFelement has helped make your life a little easier. Our LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron Giveaway Our giveaway this year was a LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron. This exclusive model was developed in partnership with Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. It’s aerodynamic body, spoked rims, moveable gearshift and logoed steering wheel make it the epitome of the ideal sports car model. Plus, the classic Bugatti blue color scheme matches PDFelement perfectly! Congratulations to Sarah, who was the lucky winner! Hearing Frank Abagnale Speak Of course there were many fantastic exhibits, sessions, and speakers at SpiceWorld this year, but our top pick had to be seeing Frank Abagnale speak. For those who don’t know, Frank Abagnale was the inspiration for the popular film Catch Me if You Can. There were many things to learn from Abagnale as he regaled us with tales of his brief criminal career as a former con artist, and his thoughts on the future of cybersecurity. It was truly fascinating to listen to. Scoring big at the Galaga Arcade Machine PDFelement was proud to achieve the high score on the vintage Galaga Arcade Machine! Seeing our name at the top of that list really put the cherry on top of a great few days at SpiceWorld! Austin’s Notorious Food Scene Of course, we couldn’t go to Austin without sampling the food. It’s impossible to be situated in Texas and not eat barbecue, so that's exactly what we did. We braved the line at Franklin Barbecue, which was a true meat lover’s delight, as you can probably tell from the pictures. We also wanted to add some Mexican cuisine into the mix! We tried out Polvo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for their salsa bar, drinks, and authentic Mexican cuisine, and Torchy’s Tacos, where we spiced things up with delicious and unique tacos that truly had our mouths watering. These dining experiences certainly made our trip all the more memorable! As you can see, we had a truly fantastic and memorable experience at SpiceWorld 2018! Did you attend?

Ensure you have the most secure, safe, and reliable recovery system out there to protect your company’s data. The modern business world is completely reliant on digital technology. These days, almost all transactions, communications, and inventories are online. The trend towards digitization of business is great for cost savings, efficiency, and environmental impact. Doing business online is now easier than ever, and companies are able to reach consumers, clients, and partners from any corner of the world with internet access. This allows access to wider markets, more customers, and a more diverse range of skilled employees to choose from. Plus, with so many tools like PDFelement to choose from, there are so many efficient options out there for virtually any type of business. The only drawback to doing business online is the vulnerability of your digital data. We are all familiar with the frustration of computer issues. Having your computer crash and losing an hour of work is at the very least an inconvenience, when at the most it can mean anything from security breaches to huge losses in profit. Big companies spend billions protecting their digital assets, and for good reason. Ensuring your data is safe and secure is an essential part of running an online business. It’s important to find a reliable way to store your data that is encrypted and secure to ensure the integrity of your information. Cloud storage is the most efficient way to effortlessly store your data behind the scenes, allowing your company to function smoothly. But you’ll want to do your research and ensure you choose a reliable system. Cloud backup systems act as a safety net for businesses, so consumer-grade cloud systems just don’t cut it in most cases. Some of the leading companies have a range of plans to suit the needs of small or large businesses. Carbonite offers affordable plans for individuals as well as businesses. SOS Online Backup is one of the more popular options. They have more expensive plans, but you can save money by pre-paying their yearly service rates at a discounted price. If you want to focus on security, CrashPlan offers better encryption than a lot of its competitors for a decent price. With CrashPlan, you pay a flat rate per computer but that comes with unlimited data storage. You’ll have to do the math to see whether this plan will be cost efficient for the size of your business but if you have a lot of data to store across a relatively small number of computers, then this plan can save you quite a bit of cash. On the other hand, if you have many computers with less data to protect, you may want to consider a different option. In the event that you lose information that isn’t protected in a secure backup server there are still options for recovering most, if not all of your data. Wondershare’s Recoverit offers the best data recovery software available. Our leading technology is fit for individual as well as corporate use and has a 96 percent recovery rate! Doing business online certainly has its pros and cons, but with a reliable and secure backup system, you can mitigate most of the risk and protect your digital data. With a bit of research, you can find the perfect cloud backup that fits your business. What are your thoughts on the best cloud backup for business? Let us know in the comments below!
PDFelement posted a blog entry in PDFelement BlogThe ability to build forms that are interactive and intuitive is highly beneficial for the end users. Have you ever built a form and wanted to tweak the way the answers will show up? For instance, you might want to set the font size, font color, and more. In today’s post, we’ll talk about how to set up your form so that the responses look nice and organized. To access the properties and edit them, either double click on the form field box while in editing mode, or simply right click. Below is a list of the properties that you are able to change. Appearance: Borders and colors The box surrounding the text can be colored if you’d like; this is completely up to you. If you decide to go with a border, you can select the thickness of the line and its style as well. Text: You can change the default size, color, and font of the responses. Options: Alignment: Left, Right, Centre Assign a default value This is useful if there is an answer that you think is common or a prompt that you want to give users. How the response displays in the text boxes: -Scroll long text: The text you input will continue on one line Multi-line: If you enter a long answer (eg. Paragraph), the text will break into multiple lines and fill the length of the box. However, you will not be able to scroll through the answer. If you have a lot of text, you can select both “Scroll long text” and “multi-line” so that you can scroll through the multiple lines that are hidden from view. Limit of x amount of characters Choose this option if you don’t want the answers to be too long; however, it will not be specified on the form. Actions You can refer back to an old blog post we wrote on the topic of mouse triggers to learn more. Format If applicable, you can set it so that the values that the user enters are numbers, percentages, dates, or times. There is also an option to select special formats: Zip Code, Phone Number, Social Security Number, and Arbitrary Mask. It’s important to note that you can’t select “Special” if you have “Multi-line” checked. Calculations You can also learn more about this topic in a previous post. Pro-tip: Always remember to press “Close” to save! There you have it! This is how you set up form responses in PDFelement for Mac. The functions in the Windows version of the software are similar, so if you have any questions or tutorial requests, let us know in the comments below! We also have an online forum where you can get your PDFelement questions answered. Hope to see you there!
The ability to create a form can come in very handy. You can make complicated and lengthy documents – such as contracts or applications – fillable and easy to complete within minutes. You’ve likely played around with the text field properties to see what you can do to make your forms even more awesome and accessible, and you may have come across a drop-down menu full of mouse triggers. Typically, mouse triggers are used to set off specific actions, such as refreshing the form or opening a link online. Have you ever wondered what mouse triggers actually do? Or why there are six different actions? When I first learned PDFelement, I ignored mouse triggers because I only needed one action to do what I wanted with my form. But my curiosity got the better of me, and I figured that many of you might be confused and seeking answers as well. After reaching out to a former customer service representative who really knew the ins and outs of the software, and doing a bit of experimentation myself, I’ve come up with a definition for each trigger. Triggers: Mouse up: The release after a click. After the mouse’s button goes up, this action will ensue. Mouse down: The mouse-click. When the mouse’s button is pressed down, this action will ensue. Mouse enter: This action will ensue when you move the pointer so that it enters the form field. Mouse exit: When the pointer leaves the form field, this action will ensue. On focus: This action will ensue when the form field has been clicked on and is being focused on. On blur: When the form field is out of focus, which happens when another place or button has been clicked, this is the action that will ensue. Other quick fun facts for form field properties: The options for formatting List Box properties can be a little tricky too. Here are a few keywords: Sort items: this will reorder the listed items numerically and alphabetically. Multiple selection: this will allow users to choose more than one item on the list. Commit Selected Value Immediately: this will save the value as soon as the user selects it. If this option is not selected, the value is saved only when the user exits the current field or clicks into another form field. I hope this article gave a thorough explanation of mouse triggers and how they work. Was there anything in this article that surprised you?
