Editors' Review


A-PDF Text Extractor helps users remove text from locked PDFs that don't allow for copying and cutting. By performing its task quickly and easily, this program could rescue more than a few users.

The program's interface feels very intuitive and users should not have trouble navigating its small collection of command icons. However, a Help file is available for anyone needing a little more guidance. This program performs its difficult task of copying text from a locked PDF with amazing ease. Users simply seek out the PDF in question by navigating a standard file tree. Next they just click the Extract button. This will ask users for a destination file and not much else. PDFs are converted into .txt files within a matter of seconds. The results were very cluttered .txt files, but they did not show any signs of errors and strangely converted letters, so we call it a certain success. The program also provides users with a deep set of features. Within the Options menu users can choose specific pages to extract or even add a header or footer to the converted text.

By converting PDFs to .txt files quickly and easily, this freeware program is certain to become a necessary tool for users who deal with PDFs often.

"Works Great"

April 20, 2013  |  By 19600429

 |  Version: A-PDF Text Extractor 1.4.2


Does what it says. I have no nag, no charge and no missing data.


When documents are printed in landscape, I have had issues with the output.


I use the output with print position. Our electronic medical record software (hosted using Citrix) has horrible reporting. I was printing to pdf and then doing a copy, paste and parse the text. This often failed, because the text did not come out consistently. Using the print position allows me to parse the data from reports without issue.
