Nitro Announces Nitro Pro 7; Makes PDF Easy With All-New Features, Category-Leading Performance, and More Intuitive User Experience

Latest Iteration of Acclaimed Product Introduces Highly Requested Functionality Such as Redaction and Intelligent Paragraph Text Editing, Alongside Significantly Enhanced Enterprise Capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 2, 2011) - Nitro, the company that revolutionized the PDF software space with the acclaimed free Nitro Reader, today announced the release of Nitro Pro 7, the latest version of its flagship desktop product. Designed to 'Make PDF Easy,' Nitro Pro 7 enables users to create, edit, secure, sign, and share PDF files more intuitively, offering category-leading functionality at an industry-first price point.

Introducing highly requested features such as Redaction, QuickSign™, and Digital Signature Profiles, alongside support for static XFA Forms and Optional Content Groups (OCG Layers), the release also includes hundreds of small but significant improvements to performance, robustness, and overall usability.

"Nitro Pro 7 is our most significant release since we created the 'Acrobat Alternative' category five years ago," said Sam Chandler, Nitro CEO. "It's the culmination of more than a decade's experience in this space, and we're incredibly proud of what it represents -- for Nitro and our customers. This release is all about delivering a product that enables more people to do more with digital documents. You won't find a more intuitive, robust, or cost-effective solution. It's PDF made easy."

Nitro Pro 7 adds significantly to its enterprise capabilities, cementing its status as the most cost-effective and feature-rich PDF solution for business users with automated site-wide license management, a customizable deployment wizard, and integration with popular document management systems such as Microsoft® SharePoint® and iManage® Worksite™. The release also introduces new functionality of note to legal and insurance professionals, such as Redaction, Dynamic Stamps, Digital Signature Profiles, and Document Management System (DMS) integration.

"The development of Nitro Pro 7 started with the release of Version 6 more than two years ago," said Chris Dahl, Nitro CTO. "We've added new functionality, but haven't changed our unwavering commitment to designing products that are both user-friendly and genuinely useful. Nitro Pro 7 is everything businesses need from a desktop PDF solution, but it's more robust and easier to use than anything out there."

New features in Nitro Pro 7 include:

  • All-new Rendering Engine - more robust rendering technology delivers enhanced performance and increased quality on even the heaviest, vector-based and image-laden PDF files for faster onscreen display and navigation.
  • Redaction - search, highlight, and permanently remove sensitive or confidential information, including images and text, from documents more intuitively and more affordably than other leading solutions.
  • DMS Integration - Access PDF files within popular Document Management Systems such as Interwoven WorkSite and iManage, Microsoft® SharePoint®, OpenText® Livelink® ECM, Worldox® GX and more.
  • Digital Signature Profiles - Easy-to-use profiles reduce the number of tedious steps typically involved in the application of digital signatures. Securely sign and return documents faster and more easily.
  • Paragraph Text Editing - Automatic reflow and intelligent detection enables users to now type in PDF files as they would in word processing software.
  • Hundreds of significant usability enhancements - Nitro Pro 7 is now even easier to use, with subtle tweaks such as the ability to automatically open documents to the most recently viewed page, expanded zoom and navigation capabilities, improved tabbed navigation, and more -- making working with its widely acclaimed UI even easier.


Nitro Pro 7 is priced at USD $119.99 per individual license, with a special introductory price of USD $99.99 per license during November. Upgrades for previous versions of Nitro Pro start at $49.99. Visit for additional detail and a comprehensive upgrade policy.
