INTERFACE & PRACTICE

Is this the only way to handle these not Mac supported file formats? No, it is possible to work, import or convert these file formats on the internet, but you do need to know what to do and search for relevant websites. This takes time and you may wish not to share your file on the internet even it it was just for conversion purposes. You have once uploaded on the internet no guarantees that your file information will remain private. Nowadays, security is important, so best keep your files to yourself.
How nice and convenient that software like Cisdem Document Reader will and can do the job for you without any hassle. Just load your file into the program and it will be converted into a readable file.

What makes it even better is the option to save the converted file in a widely used PDF file ready for use.

Cisdem Document Reader allows image selection of your document. The size of selection is set automatically by the application and a simple ‘copy’ function allows further use of the image. Simple and easy, is the ‘credo’ of this application.

 

TOOLBAR

The toolbar is adjustable by choice. Adding more icons ( options/actions ) to the toolbar is done by just simply ‘drag&drop’ the desired icon. The toolbar will provide enough tools to edit the document.

READING

  • Multiple Documents Navigate : You can open and read multiple files on document reader Mac at a time and switch them easily.
  • Full Screen Reading : You can choose to hide the toolbar or enter the full screen reading directly on menu bar for better reading.
  • Two Viewing Modes : Click the View in the toolbar to choose two viewing modes easily – with thumbnails or content only.
  • Page Navigation : You can quickly go to the first page, previous page, next page, and last page through the icons in the toolbar.
  • Zoom & Rotate : For documents in small fonts or wrong text directions, the document reader could zoom and rotate them.
  • Bookmark : Add your unique bookmarks to locate the specific page quickly for next time reading or information review.

 

SUPPORT OTHER FILE FORMATS

Trying to open different file formats like a modern and widely used simple .docx file will result in an error popup, stating its format/extension is not supported by the program. Of course the essential idea behind this application is to handle the odd and old file formats, but it would be cool to see it handle the ordinary as well, to create an one stop default application for file handling.

SAVE TO PDF

After opening and performing the wanted adjustments to your document, you can save the new file into PDF format. It would be so much better if options like save to .doc/docx/txt etcera will be implemented in future versions.
Of course we can import a PDF in almost any other word-processor, but sometimes changes in the layout of the original document are made. A common behavior of PDF format change and something to avoid if change is made once or if chosen kept in the default file conversion PDF.

 

VERDICT

Cisdem Document Reader is  not an extensive program so reviewing is limited to what it basically does, ‘read/convert’ and save odd and old file formats into common filetypes. If you are stuck with these odd and older file formats and wish there would be a utility helping you out in an uncomplicated and fast way Cisdem Document Reader is your choice. Its interface and layout is common to other (pdf) file readers.
Cisdem Document Reader does a wonderful job in converting with speed and accuracy and saves you time and effort searching the internet for conversion websites.
