PdfGrabber

CNET Editors' review

Only a couple of compromises keep the speedy and hassle-free PdfGrabber from being a full-service conversion tool. All the important formats are here, including DOC, RTF, TXT, XLS, JPEG, and conversion speeds and quality are exemplary. We turned a 50-pager with complex formatting and images into an RTF file in just 100 seconds, for example. For the ongoing conversion of all incoming PDF files, you simply set up profiles that define conversion settings for particular directories. Then, as soon as a document appears in a monitored folder, PdfGrabber processes it according to the current profile. Alas, it can't run several profiles at once, so it won't handle multiple users or directories automatically. The program may also slow performance on low-end systems. PdfGrabber could be of tremendous use to those who create digests or reports from PDFs on a regular basis.

    "Doesn't work"

    March 25, 2013  |   By doughowe

    Version: PdfGrabber 7.0.0.18

    Pros

    It has a trial version, so you can test drive the product before spending $100 or more on it.

    Cons

    Doesn't work. I'm glad I tried the test version first, because it completely failed to render my PDF into excel. All it returned was an image of the page pasted into an excel spreadsheet.

    Summary

    Save your money.

    "Great program! shame about the X's!"

    July 8, 2005  |   By tiery69

    Version: PdfGrabber 1.1.0.28

    Pros

    I've dowloaded about 15 different PDF to Word programs and was very disappointed about the quality of each one...

    It seems that PdfGrabber is one of the best, copying nearly exactly what was on originally...

    Cons

    Just Shame about the X's! appearing everywhere in the trial version...

    Which means that the full (expensive)version has to be bought or keep a day for yourself to retype eveything....

    "It should be called X-Files"

    May 25, 2004  |   By The Jeepers Creepers

    Version: PdfGrabber 1.1.0.28

    Summary

    Unlike some other evaluation versions this one did convert the whole file to a 'Word' (read RTF) document, unlike other evaluation versions it can't quite hack it. The 'developers comments' mentioned that some characters may be converted in to X's, what it does not tell you is how many. It would be quicker to re-type the document that spot and correct the characters it could not convert. Add to that it's seemingly inability to convert outlines, shading and boxes as well as graphics anywhere near their original quality and you have basically wasted your time in downloading and installing. If a demo version can't be produced that works what chance is there of anybody buying the 'full' version. This is one to miss.

    "it can't convert"

    April 9, 2004  |  

    Version: PdfGrabber 1.1.0.28

    Summary

    this software can NOT convert one single equation. If you have many mathematical expressions, don't buy this software. If you want to convert your whole-words documents, go buy a cheaper product. DON'T EVEN TRY THE DEMO VERSION. IT REPLACES RANDOMLY MANY LETTERS WITH X IN THE TEXT.
