After building a brand new high-end Windows 10 gaming/work PC, what software do you install?
Hi here are some of my programs that I installed as soon as I got my newputer (I have included s to all of the relevant programs) Gaming related Steam s - where I download most of my games and where I used to keep in touch with my gaming friends before I got Discord (theme used here Metro for Steam ) Discord s - where I organise to play with my friends and where we speak to each other over voice chat while gaming HWINFO s - a little program for monitoring my system temperature. Since I have a laptop this is pretty useful and so I have put my CPU temperature and battery percentage on my taskbar GeForce Experience s - since I have an NVIDIA graphics card I use this program to keep my drivers up to date and to tweak the visuals of my games Work related Mozilla Firefox s - is my go to browser pretty good at handling tens of tabs and good performance especially since Firefox Quantum Office 216 s - paid but unfortunately it fairly standard for editing and creating documents PDF-XChange Editor s - a great PDF viewer most features are free including OCR! Visual Studio Code s - my IDE for Python and other web development includes syntax highlighting and has a huge selection of addons and themes GitHub Desktop s - great for keeping track of my coding and for collaborating with my friends Other useful programs Chocolatey s - amand line package manager for Windows (like apt-get on Linux) helpful for keeping my programs up to date in onemand TranslucentTB s - if you were wondering this is how I make my taskbar look as it does this program blurs the desktop wallpaper with my taskbar TileIconifier s - fairly unnecessary but I like to customise things and this allows me to create tiles for my start menu for programs that don have one VLC s - a versatile video player Notepad++ s - much better than the built in one KeePassXC s - a nicer version of KeePass (a password manager and generator) Everything - super fast system wide file search bined with Wox ) I hope you find this useful don hesitate to ask if you have any questions! And more importantly have fun with your new hardware!
How can I edit, mark, or highlight text in a PDF without the editor?
Adobe Acrobat Reader is not a PDF editor but was made as a PDF reader only however Adobe has ensured that simple capabilities such as annotation can still be done using the reader. You can try that. Doesn cost anything as it is a free PDF reader to download and install. Of course beyond annotation and opening PDF they will require you fees but nonetheless if you only just need to annotate and mark PDF you can use that. Editing on the other hand is another story. Without PDF editors you won be able to do that directly however if the document was originally made from applications like Word PowerPoint or Excel then saved as PDF you can turn PDF back to its original format by simply opening it in the said applications. Once opened there you can then edit it using the program then just save it back to PDF when modifications are done. If it not machine-readable like a scanned document this operation is impossible. You will still need an online tool to convert that file so that its characters will be recognized by theputer. This tool is called OCR (Optical character recognition) and you can try one out from DeftPDF s . After its conversion you can open it in acrobat to annotate or open in MS applications to convert back and edit.
Does Mendeley manage to upload all the PDF notes/highlights you made with XChange Viewer to PDF articles?
Mendeley doesn't currently monitor file attachments for changes and upload them automatically so if you annotate a PDF in a tool which s the annotations in the PDF they won't be uploaded automatically. You'd need to remove and re-attach the file in Mendeley to get it to pick up changes. Annotations created in Mendeley itself are stored and synced separately from the PDF and are ed with your Mendeley account.
What is the best PDF editor with flexible highlighting options?
PDF Reader would be probably the best choice for you. Few tools on the market provide the flexible highlighting options however most of them are best suited for the enterprise use and are bulky and not customer-facing. PDF Reader s on the other hand had been created in mind with the busy individual professionals and is therefore very intuitive and simple. It alsopletely cross-platform - start working on one device and then continue on Mac or Windows or iPad or iOS - all your docs are getting synced in the cloud. Amazing right? The features available in PDF Reader are Merging and editing PDFs Annotating PDFs Splitting PDFs Looking up the words straight from the dictionary Filling-in PDF forms Adding watermarks Voice notes PDF Signature PDF Reader is also in the constant development and has recently be a part of Creativity 365 apps suite. Disclaimer I am part of Kdan Mobile team and can be therefore a bit biased when ites to the choice of PDF solutions. italic
Which one is better for Windows 10, Foxit PDF Reader, PDF Xchange Editor, or Nitro PDF readers?
Well I admit to being a bit biased here - but I think I can still safely say that you will find Adobe Acrobat Reader the best alternative to the native Windows 1 PDF reader. Adobe Reader supports the full PDF 1.7 (ISO 3231) specification while being the fastest to open & view of the product youve listed. It also better integrates with the operating system to enable PDF integration more deeply in places such as Explorer and Outlook.
What are recommended PDF editors (where you can write, highlight, etc.) for Mac?
For general annotations the Preview app of Mac is good enough of course if you want an advanced PDF Editor with OCR capability and ability to add elements edit s etc in PDF then go for Wondershare PDF Element Pro.
