Editors' review

Though they required minor editing, this file converter quickly and easily converted our PDFs to Word, Excel, and other file formats. We were, however, disappointed by its double-whammy of a trial limitation.

Able2Extract PDF Converter has a sleek and professional-looking user interface. Intuitive commands and navigational buttons reside at the top of the window. Novice users will especially appreciate the tips and the step-by-step guide it employs to walk you through the conversion process. The process was extremely easy and fast. Once we located our PDF, it was simply a matter of selecting the text we wanted to convert, and clicking on the file format icon on the toolbar. When we converted the PDF text to a Word file, we did have to clean it up a bit, removing a few extraneous lines and characters, but the text itself required no editing whatsoever. The program also has the capability to convert PDFs to HTML, Excel, and text files, which worked perfectly when we put them to the test. The Batch Conversion feature let us add multiple files to convert to the same file format in one fell swoop, a very handy tool for users handling numerous files.

The program offers a built-in Help feature. We were a little put off by its meager seven-day trial period, and three-page conversion limit. We also had to manually remove files during the uninstallation. But despite its few drawbacks, we highly recommend this PDF converter for all user levels.

    "Did what it claimed"

    June 28, 2013   |   By CP7212

    Version: Able2Extract 8.0.34

    Pros

    It successfully converted a .pdf to .doc (Word). It took very little time to make the conversion.

    Cons

    It uninstalled my C++ package and then re-installed the same package, and it took awhile. Uneditable fields in the .pdf were still uneditable in Word.

    Summary

    Scanned by anti-virus and malware checker, they both came up clean. Software seems to do what they claim. Those two things seem to be more than some of the same software around here.
