CNET Editors' reviewPDF files can be extraordinarily useful, but it can often be convenient to have the content in a different form. This application helps extract the content of PDF files into editable RTF text or HTML, but unfortunately functions smoothly only with the simplest documents. In our tests, documents with no advanced formatting or embedded images came out well. However, the application turned complicated documents into an almost unreadable mess. Moreover, the program simply froze when we tried to process a large PDF file. Only two options are provided for text transformation: with images and without. With these concerns in mind, we'd recommend most computer users find a more powerful application better able to deliver results.

"Product is useless!"
Version: PDF Ripper 2.01
It converts a PDF to plain text.
Of the five options, the only two that work are PDF -> HTML and PDF -> TEXT. The other options give a "Invalid class string." error. I have tried to contact support, however, I get an error or "Relaying denied. Proper authentication required." Obviously they need to learn to configure their mail server properly. I know it's not on my end because my mail server requires authentication to send out any emails.
Therefore, you have a product that does not work and it is impossible to contact support. This is one trial software I have happily uninstalled.
"Works if you only want the images... Lay-out won't work..."
Version: PDF Ripper 2.01
You can rip all images...
You can choose to convert into HTML/RTF including images and layout... but that doesn't work... So you must edit your layout yourself
