Welcome to the PDFInfoTool home page!

Welcome to the PDFInfoTool home page. PDFInfoTool is an AddOn for PStill to analyze PDF.


Select a PDF in Windows Explorer and drag & drop the file into the PDFInfoTool Window. PDFInfoTool will do a run-time analysis of the selected PDF and show the results.

PDF Info Tool can tell you about embedded and needed fonts, image raster densities and compression, page sizes, rotation and cropping, encryption, colorspaces used, spot colors, meta data, pdf version and more. It can also identify PDF/X and PDF/A files.

Installation is easy - just install PStill/Win first then the PDF Info Tool on top of it. After installation you can find PDFInfoTool in the 'PStill' start menu.

It will work with an unlicensed PStill but in this case there is a wait period on startup and one only PDF can be analyzed before the program must be restarted. When PStill is licensed PDFInfoTool will also startup instantly and has no limitations on the number of PDF it analyzes.

PDF Info Tool is a showcase for PDFCheck. PDFCheck can create a XML-based analysis reports for PDF and provides much more information than PDF Info Tool. PDFCheck is also made for server use and embedding and available on MS Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX and HPUX.
