PLOP / PLOP DS Download

Download PDFlib PLOP & PLOP DS 5.3

All PLOP packages contain combined binaries which cover two products:

  • PLOP is a versatile tool which can repair, linearize, optimize, encrypt, and decrypt PDF documents.
  • PLOP DS (Digital Signature) offers all features of PLOP, plus the ability to apply digital signatures to PDF documents. The digital signature feature is only available in PLOP DS, but not in the PLOP base product.

Download PDFlib PLOP & PLOP DS by clicking on the appropriate software package. Both products can be evaluated without a license, but some features are restricted (see documentation) unless a valid license key is applied. With the purchase of a PLOP or PLOP DS product license you will receive a license key.  The license key will activate PLOP or PLOP DS and will turn the software to an unrestricted version for commercial use.

English documentation for PLOP and PLOP DS is included in all packages.

  • PLOP/PLOP DS command-line tool
