New functions for PDFs on CLASSE Managed Windows computers
Tonight during Windows updates, we are upgrading from PDF-X-Change Viewer 2.5.x to PDF-X-Change Pro 2012. You will have a new PDF Editor program that will view PDFs by default on your computers. You will also have additional tools available for splitting, merging and scanning to PDFs. PDF Editor will also let you convert from .doc files to PDF and from PDF to .doc files. You can also add or remove pages to existing PDFs. We encourage you to explore the new functionality, with the understanding that there are of course some issues in converting between file types and it will not be 1 to 1 pixel perfect.
Look for this new icon:

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
