We conduct all PDF acrobatics operations with our own algorythms. Your data never leaves our cloud service – be assured that we handle your data confidently.


For troubleshooting, consider the following:

  • Please share with Brian the actual file(s) – not a link (e.g. to sharepoint), Brian has no access to your file system
  • With exception of file merger, please attach one file only – if you have more files, trigger more requests
  • Files having characters like % \ / : * ? ” < > | # in their file names are not supported on MS Teams
  • Brian handles files of up to 20 MB
  • Sometimes PDF documents are protected from modification even if you don’t see it. So if Brian tells you the file is encrypted, he can not handle it
