Free txting!

Convert your PDFs to text files, free and easy.

If you're one of those people who increasingly find files in Adobe's Portable Document Format, or PDFs, a part of your daily life, you know they're good for a lot of things, such as posting documentation like product manuals and warranty information online. Sometimes PDFs can be awkward to use, especially if you need to regularly extract information from them to use in other formats and applications. Software maker Some PDF specializes in PDF conversion utilities that convert and extract various files to and from the PDF format. Their PDF to Txt Converter converts PDFs to text files and vice versa, and does a fine job of it, too. Best of all, Some PDF to Txt converter is free, like its brethren in Some PDF's lineup and unlike Adobe's Acrobat, the big dog in the PDF pound, and with a correspondingly big price tag. Some PDF to Txt Converter handles PDFs created in Adobe programs and other applications, too.

Some PDF's utilities download, install, and open briskly and competently, and they share a familiar interface that is fairly simple but functional. Txt Converter easily extracts text from PDFs and saves it in .txt format. It does its thing quickly, too, meaning it's easy to convert multiple files at once. It will also convert encrypted files, provided you have the password.

Some PDF to Txt Converter is free, but donations of $20 or more to the developer earn you automatic notification of new releases.
