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.

"Works great when it works"

February 07, 2013  |  By T00intense

 |  Version: Able2Extract 8.0.24

Pros

Converts PDF's to the most popular MS Office platforms

Cons

Fails more often than not. It will continue to process and process until the application is cancelled. Then a Fatal Exception error will finally show up.

Summary

If this application worked 90% of the time it would be a great utility to own. Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to the hype. Though I'm sure if enough people complain about the product it will either be improved or you don't have to worry about purchasing it.

"Works perfectly with clean PDF's"

February 04, 2013  |  By janene33

 |  Version: Able2Extract 8.0.24

Pros

I use this program all the time to convert PDF's to Word and Excel. I've used it with Windows XP Pro and Windows 7, Office 2k3 and 2k7. If the document is straight and is a clean PDF (as in very readable), it works perfectly.

Cons

If the PDF is a crooked scanned document, if it's a fax, or otherwise hard-to-read document, the OCR is not accurate.
