GUIPDFTK provides you with a clean user interface for the Pdftk console application, which enables you to handle PDF documents within a more user-friendly environment. With the help of this tool, you can merge and split documents, modify permissions, encrypt or decrypt PDFs and more.
Ease of use is one of the program’s advantages and the interface makes no difference. It is rather simple and comprises all the options within a single window, providing fast access to all the features. On the downside, GUIPDFTK can only process a single PDF document at a time.
With the help of this application, the permissions for the selected PDF document can be changed. You can easily deactivate printing or editing, disable content copying and prevent any other user from modifying annotations and content.
GUIPDFTK enables you to separate a multiple-page document into single-page PDFs and optionally assign them a password. In this process, an additional text document is created, containing the file metadata and bookmark information.
In addition to this, the application is capable of re-compressing and uncompressing page streams and comes with options for merging multiple documents into a single PDF file. Furthermore, it can be used for repairing a corrupted PDF file and thus recover lost data.
A PDF document can be encrypted (40 or 128 bit encryption are the two available alternatives) by assigning it a user-defined key. GUIPDFTK can also be used for decrypting a PDF, provided you supply the password. Therefore, if the password is lost or forgotten, this application might not be of any use to you.
GUIPDFTK features multiple options for managing PDF files, which can ease your everyday work. Its simplicity and capabilities recommend it as a viable tool for merging, encrypting, decrypting, splitting or repairing PDF documents.
