Editors' Review

by   / March 26, 2009

Advanced PDF to Word Converter Free doesn't start off well, but, surprisingly, leaves you with a nearly-perfect document. When you install the program, it will ask you to reboot. While rebooting makes sense for programs that have deep hooks into your operating system, it strikes warning bells in such a simple converter. However, the final DOC output from this PDF to Word format converter looks pretty good, albeit with some image quality degradation and minor text alignment problems.

The program sports drag-and-drop additions, adding an entire folder or individual PDFs from different folders and custom output folders, and output renaming. While these may strike many as boilerplate, many competitors offer some variation on these features, but not all of them. OpenOffice.org users will appreciate that this converter puts out a DOC that OpenOffice Writer can cleanly read.

There are some minor problems that tag along with the major ones already mentioned. There's no support for encrypted PDFs, and when you convert there's a nag screen to get you upgrade. You can upgrade for advanced features like batch conversion, RTF and TXT output, and image deletion, but the Advanced PDF to Word Converter Free will give you a reasonable document to work from.
