    "Does not work for writer"

    March 26, 2010  |   By technickel5


    Great idea. Saves added content to PDFs that already allow entry.


    Does not allow entry into PDFs not created for data entry.


    I attempted to convert a very simple PDF into doc format, but nuance only allows for docx and other xml types of documents. I have the latest version of writer and got a very poorly rendered version of the original document. Since I had downloaded the free version, there was absolutely no way to contact Nuance tech support. The addresses they gave on the "converted document reply" only ended up as Postmaster Returned Mail. I tried as well as a couple of others. No luck. I wouldn't recommend buying this product. It's a good idea, but doesn't support the nuances of non-Microsoft products. BTW, I also tried to download the document as a DOCX, but for whatever reason, the document could only be saved as a DOC on my PC. A little tech support from Nuance would go a long way here, in case it was my fault.
