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?

Based on this entry in the PDFelement blog, the ability to perform subtraction and division was added in PDFelement 6.8.0 for Windows.¹ 😕 The omission of these core arithmetic operations is actually Adobe’s fault, as the core calculations of sum, product, average, minimum, and maximum, is the full complement of calculations available in Adobe Acrobat. Not including all four arithmetic operations did and does not make any sense. Worse, Wondershare’s choice to only include subtraction and division in the Windows edition also makes not sense, as there is no magic Windows-only API that facilitates these basic arithmetic operations only in Windows. I am guessing that PDFelement 7 for Windows still includes the ability to perform subtraction and division, but PDFelement 7 Pro for macOS, still lacks this capability. Along with a number of growing pains issues in PDFelement 7, this omission needs to be corrected.² ¹ This is the kind of thing that has always irked me about cross-platform software. Excepting features that invoke or are heavily dependent on a feature of the operating system—e.g., the macOS Character Viewer—there is no reason for most features not to be available for each addition of the software. In fact, where the Windows edition added support for subtraction and division in v6.8, PDFelement 6 Pro for macOS never went beyond v6.7.6. ² PDFelement 7.0 seems like it is a work in progress, but that is not unexpected in a .0 release.
PDFelement posted a blog entry in PDFelement BlogCreating a fillable spreadsheet or invoice? Want to make sure that the person filling in the document doesn’t mess up the calculations? This is a good opportunity to use the calculation tools in PDFelement! You can easily set the text fields to calculate the sum, product, average, maximum, and minimum values. After months of seeing requests on the forum for the option to subtract and divide on forms, subtraction and division for form calculation has now been added to PDFelement Windows in version 6.8.0! Hooray! Understandably, since these are new functions, there has been some confusion surrounding them. So, here is a quick guide on how to utilize the different form calculation tools: The Basics: Sum, Product, Average, Maximum, Minimum These calculation functions that have always been part of PDFelement. The process is relatively simple and similar: Step 1: Create or edit your forms under the “Form” tab. Make sure that the “Form Edit” button has been selected. Step 2: Once you have laid out your text fields and are ready to set the calculations, double click or right-click on the text field where you would like to display the total amount. This will bring up the “Properties” menu. Step 3: Select the “Calculate” tab in the properties menu. Select the second option and pick your method of calculation from the drop-down menu. Step 4: Select all the boxes on the form that contribute to that final text box. Click “OK” and close the Properties menu. Your commands have now been saved. To test: Select the “Close Form Editing” icon and fill in your form. Sum sample: New Form Calculation Operations: Subtraction and Division The steps for using subtr action and division are like those above. Once you go into the Properties menu, and go into the “Calculate” tab, choose the third option – “simplified field notation” – at the bottom and manually input the calculation formula. Tips: Use “-“ for subtraction and “/” for division When making your own simplified field notation, make sure that the names of the text boxes match completely, including spacing and capitalization. Otherwise, the software won’t register the box. Some odd symbols may pop up when you use division (such as the example below), but don’t worry about this. Just continue to type in your numbers and the final total will appear once all the text fields have been filled. This is how you can set up calculations in PDFelement for Windows.
