Quick PDF Converter

CNET Editors' review

Quick PDF Converter provides users with a program that changes PDFs into different file types. With a user-friendly interface and quick, accurate results, this is a great choice for anyone in a conversion jam.

With a professional layout, featuring well-planned white space and intuitive commands, we were able to instantly leap into action. Users will most likely not need the FAQ, but an in-depth one is available for anyone who finds a snag in the process. Converting our PDFs was a pleasant experience all around. Users select a file from a file tree and choose its destination using the same setup. Below these file trees are four large icons that allow for the PDF to be changed to a Word doc, an Excel file, an image, or a PostScript. Users need only press the appropriate button and the file converts in a matter of seconds, though we found the larger the file, the longer the conversion. The bottom of the Quick PDF to Word screen also features a simple gallery of options. Language, layers, image recovery, and layout options are all broken into easy radio button options. We felt that the default settings were adequate and that these will apply only to experienced users.

The program's trial offers 30 conversions. With a professional interface, simple functionality, and special features that allow experts to dial in a perfect conversion, we found this program to be a good match for all skill levels.

    "Didn't convert to Word or Excel"

    March 4, 2014  |   By williamcraig5

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    nice graphic interface

    Cons

    Tried to just convert PDF (tried several from several different sources) to Word and all I got was blank pages with the publishers disclaimer at the bottom. It apparently considered the whole PDF as an "image" because the only way I got ANYTHING was when "preserving the images"; that gave me an uneditable image but no text. When trying to convert to Excel, MS Excel gave me dire warnings that the file was not safe to open. Being adventure-some, I took the chance ... got another Excel message in a red filled box that warned about opening the file. I didn't continue.

    The support page said the problem could be one of two problems. One, that MS wasn't installed (not a problem). Two, that it may have used 'Text Only' or 'Formatted Text' option during the conversion of the text. Says that these options dispose of the pictures during conversion. In this case use the other options "Flowing Text" or "As Is" to preserve the pictures. Tried flowing and as-is options, no success.

    "Literally an ace tool"

    December 27, 2013  |   By johnwillson1234

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    Saved two days of work. I was able to convert only those pages that were required for my research.

    Cons

    I had no problem using it.

    Summary

    I had a voluminous PDF documents from which I needed a few pages for my research. I tried this software after four other tools failed half way because it had too many pages to convert. I was planning to recreate the content manually, but partial conversion feature of Quick PDF Converter saved the day.

    "Brilliant tool for editing pdf files"

    October 7, 2013  |   By jimgreen08

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    As the name suggests, this tool is pretty quick in document conversion. It converted my pdf file to .doc format which i edited in ms word. I also converted it to .pdf again after editing.

    Cons

    None so far.

    "Lived up to my expectations and more"

    October 1, 2013  |   By marcdale81

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    Converted a number of pdf files without losing any formatting. Does not give random special characters instead of common text like the one tool that i tried before buying quick pdf.

    Cons

    I did not face any issues using it.

    "Program always crashes - does nothing (Windows 7 amd64)"

    September 12, 2013  |   By WelshmanChris

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    Nothing Pro about this rubbish. CNET's ten half-star rating is not as advertised, but is actually a nine half-star rating with one extra half-star for "good luck". So please interpret the CNET half-star rating as the 0-star rating that this program deserves.

    Cons

    Installation took nearly one hour. Interface clearly based on old Windows dialogues - probably even programmed in BASIC. I tested on simple PDF files I had created myself from MS Word 2007 documents. results were at least consistent. After a long time, the program crashed, and entered the Visual Studio debugger. it never produces any output - not even a partial document or even temporary files.

    Summary

    Worse than useless.

    Did not find any flaws.

    February 14, 2013  |   By alexandertaylor945

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    "Absolute hmmmm..."

    February 4, 2013  |   By sceneit42

    Version: Quick PDF Converter 4.1

    Pros

    NONE NONE NONE!

    Cons

    The program did not convert anything (although I tried various options and settings) and installed a bunch of add-ons that purposely clicked "no" to. Also installed a few "bugs" that Malware Bytes picked-up after the uninstall.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time.
