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.

"CNET IS SUPPOSED to be a safe site to download!?"

March 16, 2015  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

ZERO and it is OBVIOUS that ANY positive comments were paid comments.

Cons

I checked FREE PDF SOLUTIONS: THOROUGHLY: EVERY SINGLE file is nothing more than a fake front for a TROJAN VIRUS! Avg stated: "Trojan horse Generic AVG detects this highly active Trojan horse and its 62823 known variants."

Summary

I am SHOCKED and appalled this site has been on CNET since 2013 ? three of these fakes were examined and APPROVED by the CNET Editors allowing a combined total more than THREE MILLION users to INFECTED! :(
I have done a better job reviewing and evaluating these than these paid EDITOR frauds.

"Only good for fixing spelling mistakes."

February 13, 2015  |  By seancox17

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

The software DOES convert pdf to word. (just)
Conversion speed is appropriate.

Cons

In my first test, the bold in the document dissapearred. (but was still there in the second.
It treats every paragrapgh as a seperate entity. ie when you type in a paragraph, the text of other paragraphs does not move, ie no new lines, and you end up with text over text, like putting a picture over another picture.

A table in the document had the data in the right place, but the gridlines (boxes) had moved out of place, and you can't fix it.

Summary

Only good for fixing spelling mistakes and very, very minor editing, if that is what you need, then this will do the job, anything else, look elsewhere.

Tested on word 2007, and Windows 8.1

"You have to watch what you agree to download"

February 09, 2015  |  By skowal

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

None. I thought downloaded a PDF to Word converter, and it kept asking for my email address and to "agree" to a bunch of crap like a new browser toolbar. Then, when I thought that I got to download the actual program, it was a media viewer. So I stopped entirely.

Cons

If you are on auto pilot and enter your email address and hit "Agree" to everything, you will end up with a bunch of junk on your computer at the very least. Who knows if there is an actual converter at the end of this yellow brick road.

Summary

Don't do it!

Could find out due to possible virus.

"Installed malware & unwanted programs"

December 30, 2014  |  By ewerber

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.0

Pros

At least the malware it installs can be caught and blocked by a good antivirus program.

Cons

Exemplifies the worst aspects of freeware - installing lots of unwanted files and programs. Even with a good anti-virus program on your computer, why take chances?

Summary

Avoid this software
