The installation file is not very big; it is about 160 MB in size. Currently the program supports only four interface languages- English, German, French and Chinese. The trial version is fully functional for thirty days; so you can easily perform any operations without restrictions. After that period, you can use the program as usual for viewing PDF files but with highly restricted functionality and features.
The installation procedure of the program is very straightforward and fast. All you need to do is to read and accept the license agreement, enter some additional information (i.e. your user name and license key, of course, if you have got it) and associate PDF and XPS files with the program. That is all. Now you can start editing and converting files and saving them as PDF documents.
The Interface of the Program- the interface of Corel PDF Fusion is very convenient and user-friendly. For convenience’s sake and reliable editing and viewing of PDF documents, the program offers three different viewing modes- Assembly View, Page View and Flick View. Assembly View allows you to work with multiple PDF documents at the same time and easily apply needed changes to them, for example, delete one page from one document and insert it to another, and so on. Page View provides you with basic tools for working with the text, for example, you can create bookmarks or add notes to the document. Page view has got a tabbed interface, so you can easily open multiply PDF documents in a single window and conveniently switch between them. And, finally, Flick View is designed as Cover Flow and it allows you to view documents page by page in the slideshow mode. Thanks to these three viewing modes, you can easily and conveniently work with PDF documents and apply all required changes to them.
