PDF Fixer - As you probably have discovered, all pdf files are not created equal. PDF files created with various companies using early acrobat formats, version 1.3, as an example may open in Acrobat but cannot be processed with our Bates Program. The reason for this is changes Adobe has made to the file structure in the later versions. The PDF Fixer feature will reprint your file, updating the format, with the original file name and overwrite the existing early format file. As there is no way to know if this will work on every old file always BACKUP YOUR FILES BEFORE USING THIS FEATURE. To access "PDF Fixer" press the button.
Reset Data Files - resets all data and memory back to default data when installed. Does not delete database stored in "Use Existing Data".
