Editors' Review

+

People share PDFs more than any other type of file, but they can be a pain to edit. Free PDF to Word switches them over to work in text editors so you can make quick edits. Though the program mentions Microsoft Word's ubiquitous word processor, it also works with Open Office and other open-source programs.

The program won't take up much hard-drive space and it can be installed in seconds. Free PDF to Word isn't exciting to look at, but it works like a charm. The best part is that it maintains most of the PDF's design, so you don't have to spend time putting the layout back together. You can make your edits and then export the file back to PDF. It will still have all the colors, images, and graphs it had before your edits. This software creates a special folder for the new document, but you can change this before converting. That way, you can keep the same file organization and you won't have to go searching for the converted document.

Free PDF to Word is a must-have for students, club members, and anyone who shares work online. It can shave hours off of your workload.

"A must-have software."

December 14, 2014  |  By orsolaallyq

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

I always had problems with the non editable pdf format and that's when I stumbled upon this software.| I can now convert pdf to word very fast and easy without any errors and the conversion takes no time at all.

Cons

No problems were encountered during the working of this app.

"Smart app to convert PDF files."

December 10, 2014  |  By HarmonykgMccor

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

After getting tired of converting all the PDF files into word documents, I got this app which is free to sue during my work as I am able to save time and energy with this free PDF to Word which makes quick edits in my work. It is compatible with Open source programs and open office.

Cons

No problem till now as it works best.

"Worst I have Tried, plus it adds PUPs"

December 02, 2014  |  By sumpin_else

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Free, sort of.

Cons

After successfully avoiding over a half dozen PUPs, thanks to my anti-virus software, I managed to download it. But download/install feels so dirty I will run full anti-virtus scan.

This is the worst converter I have tried out of about a dozen I have tried, It can't handle tables properly and barely handles text. Images are basicly destroyed.

Summary

Not at all worth the effort of downloading, certainly not worth and money or donation. I imediately removed this bad software.

"Conversion was full of grammar and spelling errors."

November 29, 2014  |  By mike.mellor1

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Handled a large file of over 3 meg.

Cons

The conversion was so full of errors that it would have taken me hours to edit into shape. A very slow install that wanted me to accept numerous add-ons.

Summary

Did not do the job as required. I will rather use the free converter at *****.com.

"Useful? in what sense?"

October 26, 2014

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Actually I don't see any!

Cons

If you just need to conver a non-editable PDF to a non-editable Word document, then this "software" will do, but since I don't see the use of that, the program is totally useless to me. I'd pay for a program that saves me the time to REALLY convert any reasonable PDF into an EDITABLE docx document, but this.... pfff!. There are not even any options to configure and force ths program to render an editable file, unless you PDF is already searchable!

Summary

Don't bother to even download. Besides, this thing tries to install a bunch of useless parasite programs if you are not carefull enough to avoid it.

October 24, 2014  |  By pscrosby

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

Easy interface converted one pdf to Word well...

Cons

Besides 3 crap add-on tool bars to avoid, it loaded hidden "TrojanHorse Generic.9A3"
http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/virus-and-malware-information/info/trojanhorsegeneric/

Summary

CNet's Download.com used to be trustworthy for at least vetting the malicious software it pimps... CAVEAT FREEBIE!

October 22, 2014  |  By forums123

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

NOTHING WORTHLESS FAKE CRAP DESIGNED TO INSTALL TONS OF

Cons

INSTALLS ALL KINDS OF MALWARE, SPYWARE, BROWSER HIJACKERS, INCLUDING ASTROMENDA AND OTHERS... VERY NEGATIVE IMPACT ON YOUR PC.

Summary

NO GOOD, INSTALLS MALWARE, AND HIJACKERS, THIS PROGRAM DOESN'T EVEN CONVERT PDF TO WORD DOCS, IT INSERTS AN IMAGE FILE (SCREEN SHOT) OF THE PDF INTO A WORD DOC, AND IS COMPLETELY UNEDITABLE, AS IT DOES NOT CONVERT IT INTO A TRUE WORD TEXT EDITABLE DOCUMENT. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

None that I can think of
