Editors' Review

Free PDF to Word Converter shares many things in common with its competitors besides a similar name. There are some useful features here that try to address the various needs and permutations of PDFs, but it struggles to get a final output that looks perfect.

There's no drag-and-drop support, but the program can batch-convert PDFs without being restricted to specific folders. You can also customize your output folder, and choose a destination format in RTF or DOC. There's support for high levels of security, with space to provide passwords from the PDF owner and the PDF user. You can remove graphics on conversion and micro-manage the spaces between words and text boxes. Free PDF to Word Converter smoothly handles specific page range conversions, too.

It doesn't fail outright on its final output, but be prepared for some minor yet annoying formatting errors, with occasional and minor word and image overlap. Keeping this in mind, Free PDF to Word Converter is still a decent and stable converter that's worth playing with--especially if you don't have any images in your source PDF.

"A copy and paste does just as good!"

April 25, 2009  |  By DLWilson61

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.3

Pros

Pros??? I just can't think of any to be totally honest and I use PDF's quite a bit so I gave this program a good work out before I quit on it.

Cons

A file was never the same after this program was done with it, I would have been better of retyping the document then to have used it. It would often come out as images to convert to table format or right to tables, and this just makes it a mess!

Summary

If I could rate it less then 1 I would have, it doesn't deserve that many. If you are serious about your PDF files and need to convert them to word documents DO NOT use this one, you will be wasting your time. If you can afford it try a purchased program, there are many out there.

"this is not free"

September 10, 2008  |  By RQuigley08

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.3

Pros

nothing false advertising to force people to buy a product. A total waste of time

Cons

the product is advertised as free. when you download and run the product, first the free trail gives a very poor quality of pdf limited in size. Then it takes for ever to convert from word to pdf.

Summary

This product is false and should be removed from the site.

"You get what you pay for it. So Enjoy!!!"

September 04, 2008  |  By ketaurino

 |  Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.3

Pros

Easy to use, fast, FREE!

Cons

Heavy FILE, no preservation of text size or tables.

Summary

The software is light, easy to use, not misteries at all. I have also tested it with a 150 pages document, and it did work really fast! You really get a Word version of your PDF. and IT IS FREE!!!!
HOWEVER... What you get is a HUGE .doc file that needs TONS of work. I disagree with the publisher´s description. The tables and texts have no consistency and the layout is lost. You need to fix each paragraph one by one before anything else.
Still, it is still easier than copying and pasting each PDF´s section :)
