The next generation of PDF Toolbox.

The next generation of PDF Toolbox.


Tectra Writer 1.7 was released last year and redefined what Writer was at the time. It added a ton of new features that were very useful. PDF Toolbox v1.3 might not be quite as major of an update as Tectra Writer v1.7, but it does come pretty close. Gone is the boring user interface, replaced by a beautiful new material design. Better yet, features have been added, refined, and improved. Put simply, PDF Toolbox v1.3 is a huge update that Tectra hasn't seen the likes of since last year.
What's new:
  • Material design: PDF Toolbox has an amazing new material design. Gone is the boring, somewhat complicated, user interface. The material design mixes a dark color palette with tasteful animations, making PDF Toolbox look and feel very modern.
  • HTML to PDF: This feature is still in the works, but you can now convert basic HTML files to PDF files. It's a work in progress, but it's still pretty neat!
  • Create multiple blank pages: You can now create more than one blank PDF page. This means that you can (in theory) edit PDF files at no cost by using PDF Toolbox and Adobe Acrobat's fill and sign feature. Sweet!
  • New icon: The old icon for PDF Toolbox was mediocre at best. I have replaced it with a new logo that I designed myself! Personally, I think it looks a lot nicer now.
  • Improved splitting PDF files: I have made it a lot easier to split PDF files. You can change the file and save paths before converting it now. Handy!
  • Bug fixes: As usual, I have fixed a number of bugs.
It's amazing just how far PDF Toolbox has come. It went from being a basic program that could merge PDF files to a whole suite of useful utilities. It truly has grown up a lot!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2022 - Still Worth Buying?

About a year ago, I reviewed the 2014 Mac mini on this blog. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it was still an excellent machine for productivity tasks, but it could also handle some more intense things you threw at it. Thus, it became my daily driver up until I upgraded to a 2017 MacBook Air a few months ago. That being said, I’ve still been using it some, so I thought I’d briefly share how it’s holding up these days. Here are my thoughts on this miniature Macintosh one year later! Performance  Over the last year, I’ve been impressed by how much this Mac can handle. It’s rocking a 2.6 GHz dual-core Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM and a Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB SATA SSD. What all that jargon essentially means is that it’s a moderately powerful little computer, although it certainly isn’t going to put newer Macs to shame. Regardless, I’ve been able to do lots of coding, video editing, and schoolwork on this computer, and it has generally worked pretty well. Granted, it can take a while to

Violoncello for Windows is finally here!

Hi, everyone! Ever since I first started working on it over a month ago, I have spent countless hours creating and perfecting Violoncello for Windows. Featuring a slick and minimal UI, lots of customization options, and support for Windows versions going all the way back to XP, I am very pleased with how the Windows version of Violoncello has turned out. As a result, I am very excited to announce that Violoncello for Windows has finally been released! Violoncello for Windows is packed with features, some of which are found in the mobile version, and others that are not. Some of these include: Open in main browser: Easily open the page you are currently viewing in Violoncello in your default browser! Custom search engine: Choose from Bing, Google, DuckDuckGo, Wikipedia, or set your own. Lots of customization: Change the background and text colors, and choose a font. Bookmarks: Easily manage and visit bookmarks. Jump to top: Quickly jump to the top of a page. (0, 0) Those are most of the

September 2023 Photo Dump

Hey, everyone! It's been a while! I'm glad to say that I am not dead; I have been going to the gym, doing school stuff, and taking a bunch of photos. I recently acquired a Canon Rebel T7, and it should be no surprise that I have been using it a lot lately. I have taken it around my hometown, on a trip to Elk Rapids, Michigan, and to the neighboring town to get some pictures of some friends' cars (2011 Camaro & 2017 WRX). So, for the first new post in forever, I wanted to share some of my favorite recent photos. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! Shot with a Canon Rebel T7. Lenses used: Canon 18-55mm EFS mount lens (the one that comes with the T7) and a Canon 75-300mm lens (EF mount). All pictures were shot in manual mode.
