Editors' reviewOnly 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.
PdfGrabber opens up a range of new possibilities for processing PDF files. Rather than having to accept the restrictions associated with this format, PdfGrabber enables simple conversion into a range of other file types. Edit PDF content in Microsoft Word®, Excel® and PowerPoint®. Export technical drawings to your CAD program, save complete documents for archiving as TIFF or extract all the images contained, for example, as JPEG files. Do you want to integrate PDFs into your website? Or read these on your iPad®? With the PdfGrabber this, too, is no problem thanks to conversion to HTML and the eBook format, ePUB. For professional users, PdfGrabber enables export to ASCII-Text and XML as well as various other automation options, such as the creation of export profiles, monitoring of folders and control via the command line. Naturally, the PdfGrabber is Windows 8 compatible and can also be installed on 64bit systems. Since different users have different requirements, PdfGrabber is available in a range of versions. For those who only wish to edit PDF documents in Microsoft Word®, the smallest, entry-level solution, PdfGrabber Home, is the ideal product. Those who also want the option of conversion to images, HTML and Microsoft Excel® tables should opt for PdfGrabber Standard. Whilst for professional users PdfGrabber Professional is the perfect choice; this version additionally includes export profiles for Microsoft PowerPoint®, AutoCAD® and XML as well as all the automation options. This version is also available as a network licence for multiple users.
What's new in this version:
Version 8 features a range of innovations. A completely new technology ensures a significant improvement in the recognition of tables and Microsoft Excel output. Also the quality of conversion to Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint could be increased again.
