Actino worked for many years with PDF tools. Besides the distribution of known plug-ins they develop their own interesting solutions. Therefore Actino is one of the best places if you want a PDF tool …

I know Mr. Karbe and Actino software since the mid-90s, when I was looking for a solution for mass left in an automatically generated PDF with more than 1,000 pages. The team of Actino has always accepted my challenges comprehensively and – much better – always found a suitable solution. Our guest newspaper HotelPress with its eight language editions would hardly be conceivable without the solutions of Actino to automate processes and to optimize PDFs.
