I had a bit of trouble getting it registered but once I got through the convoluted process it seems to work well in converting stuff. I think my request would be to make the registration process a bit less of a pain in the butt and to make your website a bit less convoluted as finding the info to get this properly set up was more time consuming than it needed to be.

I just installed the software, which came up as a trial supporting only the first 5 pages.

My first conversion, PDF to DOCX, was of a challenging old image PDF of an old two-column book complete with library stamps on the pages.

The DOCX was amazingly good! It would have been impossible to import this PDF into Microsoft Word, and less challenging PDFs often convert so poorly as to be useless. This software is impressive.

BTW I use very expensive research software that can import DOCX (i.e. XML) but not PDF and this should be of immense value to me.

I have PDF documents by which I test all programs like this.
PDF-to-Word did not create a document that I could edit. It just created a bunch of images which it pasted onto a Word document. My PDF-to-Excel tester is a scanned document. AceThinker did nothing except generate a blank Excel sheet. When I clicked on the OCR button on the toolbar, it just took me to a web page where it offered to do the conversion online, instead of AceThinker doing it.
Additionally, to register this program, you have to create an account with them so that they can have a "relationship" with you. NO, I do not want a relationship with you.
Another PDF converter bites the dust.

first timer in offering some feedback ........... apologies, in advance, if my comments are not substantiated in the software:

1. installation of the software and registration have been without incidents. the developer likes to compile a database of users and I guess it is normal industry practice.

2a. if the files-to-be-converted are scanned pdf files, then editing of the contents of the converted files is not possible, as the converted files are :image files". addition of the text outside of the images is possible ......... hence the software functionality is not of much use for scanned documents

2b. conversion of the scanned pdf files into .txt files comes out with 2 major issues, namely loss of format and incorrect interpretation of the characters. this means quite a bit of correction is required to bring the content to match the content of the original document. decision to use this software, followed by restoration of the contents will be driven by the efforts involved versus creation of the document afresh.

2c. if a pdf document has been originally created using the features of the word processors, which allow saving the word documents as pdf files, conversion of such pdf files is without a problem.\

2d. if the pdf document has been downloaded from the net, the conversion seems to work correctly. however, i have not used a very small sample to assert that all conditions are covered.

summary: scanned pdf files are NOT OK, saved pdf files (using word processors) are OK. Downloaded files seem OK within the limited sample.

3. pdf to ppt again seems to work for all those files, created from within the software. conversion and editing of scanned pdf files does not seem to work.

4. pdf to excel creates 2 sheets for a file with headings and data, Table 1 (name of the sheet) has the heading, while Table 2 (second sheet) has all the other data. while the data is preserved, the formulae will be gone. you will have to reenter the formulae.

5. pdf to jpg and and png files conversion makes the converted files editable, not for the content, but for cropping etc., But i assume such editing is not possible even for normal jpg and png files, unless you have created them yourself or you use another software. I do not have much use for these functions.

It's a well designed interface that looks the part although working out all the steps in registration wasn't as easy as it could have been. I gave the program a ukulele song book to convert back to word so edits could be made. Superficially it did a brilliant job, but on closer inspection many of the pages that 'look' like text are in fact graphic pictures of whole verses that haven't been converted. Not sure why this is- certainly on pages where the font is something like calibri it converts pretty well but on 'bolder' fonts the software chooses to leave the text as a picture. Overall though the software managed around 80% of the book so would have saved a great deal of typing.As a software package it brings together a whole raft of PDF utilities that are available widely in a number of combinations such as merge, split, ocr, conversion from office to PDF , unlocking etc. If you currently work with PDFs regularly these won't be new additions to your arsenal. I took a JPEG contents page and converted it to PDF before trying to convert it to Word - none of the text was attempted . Strangely, using the same PDF and pushing it through OCR to text, all the words were recognised.

Alex, this is a real world example of why one may need to convert a .pdf to word:
We provide a service on our infrastructure for clients, and have an obligation to run DR tests. We use a replication product for DR purposes. This product produces reports in .pdf format. We need to redact portions of the report that include device names and IP addresses, admin account names, etc, for security purposes. Acrobat Pro can do this, but it is clunky, relies on manually marking sections of text, often automatically highlights entire sections, does not keep option changes (such as 'redact selected text only', instead 'redact whole word') and is s-l-o-w. Converting to Word and using search-and-replace to redact and then printing to .pdf is so much easier and faster.

But Acrobat has problems converting to Word; it produces blocks of text as images, it produces outlines of original graphics.

Not actually used the product yet, but if it converts to Word and produces the original document as text and gfx, then I'm happy.

Comments about the software itself rather than the rights and wrongs of converters would be much more useful to both other users and the developer I would imagine.

I do not need to convert a PDF file to something else.

Alex Legrand,
PDF is a printed paper, the difference being it can be only printed on a monitor. You come across such a paper and want to use it for your own needs, but it needs editing. Your choice is to retype the whole nine yards, or convert it into the original format, edit it and save it. If you want to do it the hard way, you are welcome.

Reply   |   Comment by Basheer  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-38)

Alex Legrand, well good for you.
For other people, there are many situations when you might have a document you would like to for example convert to Word so you can be able to edit it, add or remove content or simply extract some text, probably in some format, etc without having to type it.
In that case the OCR feature comes in handy.

One time, some organization needed some long content in a pdf doc. onto their website text body. The easiest way forward was to convert to Word or text, then copied and integrated it into a page.
I have had to do this many times.
Then there are situations you would like to extract images or convert one into other formats or maintain the formatting in the pdf, but with text in editable form.

Basheer, "want to use it for your own needs"
Most of the time, you have to ask the author for permission.
Otherwise it is not legal.
And PDF of yourself, most of the time you do have the original to work with.

Alex Legrand,
No, I do not dispute the copyright issue, which was also not the subject of my original reply to your post.
I got the impression you see no reason to ever use such a program.
My response was NOT referring specifically to AceThinker PDF Converter Pro 2.0.8, but to ALL search converters. There are situations also PRIVATELY in which you may need to use the features it offers.
I actually do not remember ever having installed AceThinker PDF Converter Pro 2.0.8, but have used similar programs and do have have 1 or 2 already installed and which I have had to use now and then, but will give this a try. In my experience, some converters, just all other software are better than others, but one can only establish that through trying them out.

Regarding copyright, you really do not think all PDF always have to come from some faraway copyrighted source that no one can edit, do you? I myself do frequently make PDFs from Word docs, or you encounter someone who only has a copy of their own as PDF & no longer have them or at a particular time in some editable format, ... ;)

Reply   |   Comment by xprt007  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Alex Legrand, so good for you and this being a free world, with free choices ... ;)

I am quite sure, though I do not stand alone as I have not just seen a PDF/format converter program for the first time and believe it or not, there are people who privately and professionally use such programs and people make and sell them - LEGALLY or they'd be banned.

In the real world, there are no infallibly made PDF docs and so there are situations where, just like text, audio or video editors, one needs to edit such a document. If you have not encountered such a situation, that is a very different issue and it would be strange to assume only what you have encountered/can figured out is the only reality. ;)

Peace!

Alex Legrand, I'm afraid you are the one who stands alone in this situation. Good for you if you never need to change or access particular parts of a PDF. I, and many others, have had the need to access parts or change something in a PDF file for personal or professional reasons (copyright being taken into account). For example, I worked for a company that had internal training PDFs, no longer had the original docx files, and needed to make changes to the wording on some of the training due to government safety rules change. So, we had to convert the PDF to a word file, change the affected section, and re-save as PDF to send out to employees.

I beta read for a friend who is an author. Often it is more efficient for her to send me a PDF of her latest work. I convert it to a word file, make my edits, convert it back to PDF and send it to her, with my notes. It is just what works for us.

I have a web design client who wants me to take images and text from his PDF files to add to his website. He can't find the original documents and photos. They are all his own property (he took the pics). So, I convert it to docx, extract what I need for his website, and easy peasy, it is done.

I have not tried this particular converter, yet, but if it works like I hope it will, then it will be something I keep, going forward.

So, Alex. I am glad you have no need for a converter in your line of work and life. But, there are many of us who legitimately need and use converters in our line of work. And, of course, if work is copyrighted we need to get written permission from the creator. That is a given.
