PDF files are widely used on Mac OS X as they can be created, viewed and shared easily. But by nature, they are hard to be modified. With the built-in Preview, users can make some kind of modifications on the PDF files such as adding annotations, merging PDF pages. But it is far from enough, as it doesn’t allow users modify PDF text and images. Then, AnyBizSoft PDF Editor for Mac is needed. It is an innovative PDF editing tool and it provides 2 methods for users to modify PDF files on Mac OS X: Modify PDF files directly and Modify PDF files in Ms Word.

Method 1: Modify PDF Files directly Open a PDF file with AnyBizSoft PDF Editor for Mac. And then you can modify your PDF files now:

After adding text, now the Touchup Tool is selected by default. So just click on the text block, and drag the text to the place on the page as you like.

Method 2 Modify PDF files in Ms Word Open a PDF file with AnyBizSoft PDF Editor for Mac. Then choose File > Convert to Word in the top menu bar, you can quickly convert the current PDF file to editable Ms Word document. Then you can modify it in Ms Word. Both the 2 methods allow you to modify PDF files on Mac OS X. In my opinion, the first method is quicker if you only need to modify a few typos on the PDF file.

There are times when a database administrator has to work with DBF databases created in many different applications such as Clipper, dBase, FoxBase, Foxpro. For all the functionalities each of them provides, none of them can be considered as a universal tool that can be used to view and modify databases created in other packages. Purchasing all these applications comes with an impressive price that not everyone is ready to pay. Knowing this, developers from Hi Base Group made an amazingly powerful and affordable tool called Advanced DBF Editor.

DBF Editor from is a editor specifically designed to view and modify DBF databases created in all popular database applications. When I say popular, I am referring to Clipper, dBase III/IV, FoxBase, Foxpro, Visual Foxpro.

You do editing on the fly as your view a database, and there is no need to run another database application for making a few quick edits. If you have a large database, you can still quickly find a record you want by using a simple search, query, or filtering. What’s more, the editor can also help you to search and replace particular values in fields with the new ones automatically, add new records to the database, find and delete duplicates that may often be found within a large database.

Besides viewing and modifying, the program can help you to convert a database to new database formats without the need to install extra database software.

You can open the database in Advanced DBF Editor, select XLS in the Export dialog and export as needed. What’s more, you can export a database to other formats such as DBF, TXT, CSV, HTML, XML, PRG, SQL, RTF.

Some companies buy several different database applications to view, modify, or export various DBF databases. This may cost a lot. Now you have a chance to save money and get the functionality of all these tools in a single universal database tool that will not burn holes in your pockets when you buy it.
