Schott Systeme Updates PDF Presentation Tools
Munich, Germany, April 2008 - Schott Systeme GmbH have launched their latest PDF presentation suite. Key features of the software include the ability to create typical 'slide show' presentations in a PDF format, in addition to the automatic conversion of CAD and graphics data for professional print.
PDF Document Conversion
Supplied as standard within their 'Pictures by PC' software for 2D/3D design and technical documentation, the aim of the suite is to provide users with a number of professional PDF creation tools. Integrated into the software's 'Image Viewer', an Explorer type tool to visually handle project documentation, the user can quickly generate new PDF's by simply selecting the documents to be included. Converting numerous formats from CAD drawings through to designer sketches, the generation of the PDF is then extremely fast, and provides an ideal means of supplying project documentation into a format that all parties can read. More advanced than the general PDF output typically found in CAD systems, tools such as 'Font Embedding' and 'Colour Profiles' ensure the final PDF's can be used as a basis for professional print.
PDF 'Slide Show' Presentation
Using the same tools, the selected documents can also form the basis of a PDF 'Slide Show'. With the key benefit being a project presentation that can be displayed on both PC's and Mac's, the user simply selects the slides for inclusion, and applies slide transition effects and timings to determine how the presentation runs. Providing an effective way to distribute project information to all members involved, the 'Slide Show' is produced as a single PDF document that can be opened by a standard PDF reader.
