What Exactly are PDF Real Estate PDF Forms?


Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is the open de facto standard for electronic document distribution worldwide. PDF files and documents can contain any combination of text, graphics, and images. Documents can be one page or thousands of pages, very simple or extremely complex making use of elaborate fonts, graphics, color, actions, form fields, links, and images. PDF is a unique format that allows the identical presentation of a file without regard to the software and hardware used to view it. These files are a perfect vehicle for sharing information among the diverse computing environments that make up the Internet.

The PDF conversion process uses licensed Adobe conversion software. This software does not use risky processes such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) scanning that often results in loss or alteration of information and documents of poor quality. Graphics and other form items are embedded in the document (they appear in the document exactly as they do in hard copy). File sizes can be kept very small (on a standard-speed modem, one page transfers in about two seconds). PDF files are fully text-searchable using Adobe PDF Reader software. Adobe PDF is a universal file format that preserves all of the fonts, formatting, colors, and graphics of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. Therefore, anyone can open your document across a broad range of hardware and software, and it will look exactly as you intended – with layout, fonts, links, and images intact.

Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated, and printed exactly as intended by anyone with the free Adobe PDF Reader, with more than 110 million downloads so far. Digital Office Software delivers specific trade varieties of complete real estate form and tool collections, with automated tools for using the Adobe PDF 4x5 file format.
