Creating PDFs, Previewing Office Files and many more new features…

It has been a really long time since we last spoke to you. The Share team has been busy adding new features and improving performance of Share Beta. And today we released a new version of Share with a whole host of new features.

The first thing you will notice when you login to the Share Beta service is the new button bar at the top.

We have eliminated the Home tab which was in the previous version of the service to give more focus to your documents in the Share library. The three buttons are the primary tasks supported by the Share service: Uploading files, Sharing files and Converting Files to PDFs. Yes, creating PDFs!ᅠ

Now you can convert documents to Adobe PDF using Share! Adobe PDF is the de facto standard for more secure, dependable electronic information exchange — recognized by industries and governments around the world. By converting your files to Adobe PDF you can ensure that recipients will be able to view your files regardless of platform and application availability. To convert a file to PDF simply select the file from your desktop or by dragging-and-dropping a file already in your Share library.

Once the PDF conversion is completed you can directly Share the converted file or copy the URL or copy the embed code for the file. Share supports converting to PDF all the popular formats including: Microsoft Office files, Open Office files, text files, images and postscript files.

Share Beta Updated

It has been a couple of weeks since we last spoke to you. Thank you all for using the service and providing valuable feedback. Since the last time, we have updated the Share Beta service with a few enhancements and bug fixes. In particular the embedded previewer now allows embedding of image files (including jpeg, gif, png) on websites, wikis or blogs.

In addition we are also adding a full page toggle mode for the embedded previewer and other UI controls like zoom-in and scroll based on your feedback. These are particularly important when reading embedded documents.

A couple of features that the team is working on are:

  • Adding the ability to convert documents to PDF (including Microsoft Office files, ODF, etc.)
  • Easily searching and finding documents using the document properties and content.

More on these and additional features later…

Enjoy Share..
