Doxillion Document Converter from NCH Software is a free tool for converting documents to and from the most commonly needed file formats. It can convert DOC, DOCX, HTML, PDF RTF, TXT, and WPD documents into DOC, DOCX, HTML, PDF, RTF, and TXT files, singly or in batches of thousands. It integrates with right-click menus in Explorer and also supports drag and drop. It can even attempt to repair corrupted documents as it converts them, potentially rescuing data. It's totally free and needs no other software to run, but it also integrates with NCH's other tools.

Doxillion is very easy to use, with a big green plus sign for adding files to the main list view. Highlighting entries in this list displayed their properties in the right-hand sidebar. We browsed to an output folder in the entry field beneath the main view, and then selected an output format and encoder options. All that was left to do was press Convert. Doxillion quickly processed our batch and saved the output to our selected directory. A button labeled Open output let us open the target folder directly from the interface (right next to the Convert button) which we found a very useful option, especially when saving documents to more than one destination. The toolbar icons let us remove files as well as add them, and also access the program's options. These cover Overwrite settings, Conversion formats and errors, Right-Click behavior, and choices like whether to play sounds. There's a good HTML-based Help file as well as buttons labeled Burn to Disc and Suite. Clicking Burn to Disc will download and install a disc-burning utility, while Suite opens the NCH Software Suite, a selection of the developer's titles.

We've tried many of NCH's tools and always found them to be good performers. Doxillion Document Converter is no exception. It may not convert a zillion document types, but it does a fine job with those file types that most people need most often.

"This is not free!"

April 04, 2015  |  By jackcrompton

 |  Version: Doxillion Document Converter Free 2.31

Pros

Works well. Used previous version all the time with no problems. And it really was free!

Cons

Imagine my surprise on discovering that this is a trial version. So, not free - just free to try.

Summary

Good software, but you eventually have to pay for ir. (And it ain't cheap!)

"Text size conversion issues"

March 22, 2015  |  By Donna Simmill

 |  Version: Doxillion Document Converter Free 2.31

Pros

easy to install and use

Cons

takes a long time to convert .doc to pdf
Converted pdf is unprofessional as the text size keeps changing, sometimes in mid word going from large to tiny making the document very reader unfriendly

Summary

I brought this software, I know this is the free version but I upgraded because I really needed a good converter and my quick trial seemed okay.
I was however really disappointed.
I tried to convert a word doc to a pdf format, when I opened the document I not only found the software couldn't handle conversion of text boxes leaving any page these were on blank, it lost all the formatting, i.e. chapter header started 1/4 way down a page is at the top. but worst of all, the text, uniformly sized in my word document, randomly and very frequently switches from being very large to very small making the document not very reader friendly.
I honestly wouldn't recommend this based on my experience with this software, maybe I am just being unlucky, though I have had the same results twice in a row now, all in all I am very disappointed, especially since I paid for this.

"Beware of Doxillion!!"

June 16, 2013  |  By Dean33414

 |  Version: Doxillion Document Converter 1.14

Pros

There are none. Everything they purport to do can be done with other standard software.

Cons

Malware.

Takes over your pdf downloading process.

Bombards you with ads for other NCH products.

Starts off with a mandatory "free" download that turns out to be a trial version.

Summary

Soon after I downloaded Acrobat X, I was required to download Doxillion before I was able to download pdf documents. So I did and downloading pdf documents became cumbersome and confusing. It then required six or seven additional time-consuming procedures to download and "convert" a simple document.

And soon there came an onslaught of ads for other NHC software. Then came a notice that I had downloaded the "Trial Version" of Doxillion and that I would need to purchase the full version.

I then realized I was dealing with malware.

I reinstalled/repaired Adobe Acrobat and uninstalled Doxillion and all the other NCH software that had infected my computer.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD DOXILLION!!

IF NHC INFECTS YOUR ADOBE SOFTWARE (AS THEY DID MINE) YOU WILL BE TOLD YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DOWNLOAD A FREE ADD-ON. DON'T!! INSTEAD REINSTALL ADOBE.

"Fair, for small documents"

June 08, 2013  |  By issachar5

 |  Version: Doxillion Free Document Converter 2.08

Pros

Works well and quickly for small documents. Easy and straightforward to use.

Cons

Will begin larger documents, and quit part of the way through, wasting your time.

Summary

Fair; it might be that the paid program will work well for larger documents, but (of course) one can never be sure until you buy it and try it.

"DOXILLION MALWARE ALERT!!!"

March 24, 2013  |  By hotsprig297

 |  Version: Doxillion Free Document Converter 2.04

Pros

very few pros

Cons

Malware warning - NCH software "Doxillion"

This is badly destructive and poorly behaved, and microsoft is part of the problem since the automatic application search feature links to this (instead of the correct microsoft word document converter which works fine) and windows doesn't offer up a way to undo the damage caused without rolling the system back to a restore point created before the installation.

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!

"Concur very sneaky malware."

January 06, 2013  |  By mrquickbooks27

 |  Version: Doxillion Free Document Converter 2.02

Pros

NONE...except it wasn't too hard to remove once I happened to see the strange shortcut on my desktop.

Cons

NCH downloaded "Fast Fox" automatically when I downloaded a typing tutorial from NCH software. Subsequently when I tried to run Open Office Writer it said I needed Doxillion to run (I never needed this before or after!)

I then happened to notice the Fast Fox shortcut on my desktop that was new...Upon removing Fast Fox my problems went away
