Tricks for PDF Files

A simple, efficient application for small manipulations in PDF files.

In recent versions of ImageMagick has been added a security policy that blocks manipulations in PDF files. This affects PDFTricks operations. To correct this change the settings of your ImageMagick installation. Check the homepage for instructions.
