Schematics saved as PDF files store data in a self-contained format and provide various security options. These benefits enable professionals to distribute their schematics to a greater range of devices without an alteration of data.
Whereas the way computers display most file formats depend on the software and the operating system they run on, PDF files contain all data within. This ensures that the fonts, tables and images remain the exact same on all platforms.
PDF files also provide security options that make sure that users cannot alter the file. By adding watermarks, encrypting the content and using password protection, professionals can prevent others from making amendments to the schematics.
