ACPSoft PDF Converter is a lightweight but very powerful utility that converts documents to different formats. It works mainly with PDF files and supports converting them into DOC, HTML and TXT. There are several reverse options, such as converting from DOC to PDF.

Batch conversion is available and the files can be converted one by one as well. The program recognizes a large variety of fonts and allows adding watermarks to converted PDF documents. It also supports adding headers and footers. The converted files can be edited and the demo version shows the result immediately, thus enabling a user to check if the file can be edited before registering the product. The source file formatting is always preserved and the program works with read-only PDF files as well.

$50 for this ? No offense but it feels like your original price was $14.99 and you are pretending it's $50 in the hope you sell a copy or two at $15.

Giovanni your personal first choice made a 21 mb pdf into a 670 mb word file, not only that, I can't even open files about 512 mb in word. You usually have good picks but this one was just messed up.

I just installed and tried it. I was very impressed as to how poorly this performed for a retail program. A pdf job application form with many light blue shaded fields was converted to a word document with a little scattered text and many large black boxes. It was not even close to the original. Uninstalling immediately.

Doesn't look like this program lets you apply Bates stamps to a PDF. That would be one feature perhaps making it worthwhile for purchase. Does anyone know of an inexpensive or freeware program that lets you Bates stamp or otherwise number a PDF?

The best PDF-->Word conversion program BY FAR that I've tried is Adobe's own program. After trying a bunch of free programs on a 65-page PDF containing both text and images which had been created from an Adobe Framework file and obtaining highly frustrating results, I decided to bite the bullet and buy Adobe's product. (A yearly subscription costs $20 at https://exportpdf.acrobat.com/app.html.) The results were unbelievably good -- 100% correct character conversion, plus full preservation of the images and layout. The only deficits were some inconsistent font selections and the replacement of square bullets by equals signs.

One should perhaps take into account that Adobe is better placed than most to convert files accurately that were generated by one of its own products, although I also achieved excellent results with files produced with non-Adobe products. But a general caveat is that the source language makes a difference. Adobe's conversion program allows you to select English (UK and US variants), French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish as source languages. When I converted a document written in Danish, which uses three additional letters not contained in the English character set, I had to manually correct those letters.

Translators and other people who work with languages not supported by Adobe will have to look elsewhere for optimal results. But what that 'elsewhere' is, I don't know.

I haven't downloaded, so I won't vote, but it doesn't appear to convert to/from image files. I commonly take pdfs and convert them to images for various purposes. I'm a teacher and you wouldn't believe how often I need/use that particular function. If I'm wrong, please let me know and I'll give it a shot.

Tested it on a rather large e-book in PDF format, converted to Word doc. There was some reformatting that needed to be done, but I've encountered way worse with other PDF-to-Word software that I actually paid for in the past, so I was pleased. What did I have to reformat? Change some of the font color to black (easy - CtrlA then change), fix a few page breaks (maybe 5 in a 54-pg document), fix a few bulleted or number spots and fix 2 places where a picture was in the original PDF and went wonky when converted. Not bad, I'd give it a 7/10 rating. Haven't tried any of the other conversion options, but so far so good. Thanks, GAOTD!

@Giovanni, do you know of any pdf editor that can shrink the size of pdfs? Please update...

Reply   |   Comment by Sandra  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

It lacks several features for this price (Not today as it's free):
It should convert both way also epub, html, doc, docx, xls, etc.
It should also provide some ways to properly edit the pdf and reduce its size. That would be welcome here too as another giveaway as I have yet to see something able to shrink the size of pdf files. Overall, it's an average software which should increase in features to retain its price or decrease its price dramatically as many freewares and open sources can also do these features for free.
But thanks anyway.

The tables and the picture areas are all messed up after the conversion, getting ready to uninstall.
It will take me an hour to correct the conversion, which defeat the purpose for conversion.
It is best if you just copy and paste, simple and correct without any mess.

does nemopdf convert scanned PDFs into DOCs? i don't think so since even the developer site does not tell it. the best scanned PDF to word converter i have found so far is http://www.convertpdftoword.org/
the limitation is ~ 30 min per file conversion, and you must share your email address since they will send the converted file there only. i find it's worth it since no other software comes close to it when converting PDF to DOC.

Each time a similar program comes along, Giovanni recommends Nemo PDF to Word. Each time I download it, and each time it lacks the Convert command that it needs to function. What am I missing, please?


Reply   |   Comment by Brian  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

My only reason for converting PDFs to doc etc. has been for editing, e.g. to erase coloured background before printing which costs up to 60 times more ink (3 colours!) than pure black on white and thus emptying your cartridges in a hurry.

If it's the same for you, Adobe Acrobat can print black on white, too, but is too costly. But there is free PDF-XChange Viewer (portable). Goto Edit, Preferences, Accessibility and select "Override Document Colours" and then "Use Custom Colour Scheme". After changing colour to your wishes (Line Art? Fill Colour?) "Apply". By the way there is a predifined colour scheme for black and white, too.

Working effectively I have "installed" portable variant twice to allow a quick comparison of coloured PDF and black and white.

PDF-XChange Viewer + Portable:

And it's a very elaborate software!

Ashraf gave such a glowing report about Unipdf that I decided to take a look at it, as he stated it is in a class of its own as a converter, and that it is free is really quite amazing.

Just had to bring your attention to this as I've never seen anything that even compares with it.

For a full set of PDF tools all you need is the above plus the following:-

To create bookmarks:-
To manipulate PDF files, 12 very useful functions such as, split, merge etc.
To create PDF office type files:-

All the above are free and first rate programs.

Without OCR conversion capability, it's useless for me.

Result: Below Average. It only works some of the time. Most of the time, it does not.

Can convert a PDF (A) document to text.

Cannot convert another PDF document (B) to text. Blank page result.
Cannot convert another PDF document (B) to MsWord. Blank page result.

Compared this to PDFZilla.
PDFZilla can convert PDF document (B) to text. Text output of content.
PDFZilla can convert PDF document (B) to MsWord. MsWord doc output of content.

My 2 cents for today's giveaway!

I have been looking for a PDF to Doc programme for some time. However I am sorry that I cannot comment on this programme as the comment about conversion quality put me off. I must thank Andrew, however, as I did download Unipdf and it is excellent both for quality and ease of use. I did have to keep alert during the installing process to ensure that lots of bloatware did not get put on my machine as well but if you are vigilant you can cross that minefield without incident. Once again thank you Andrew.

Ok, today it's free but, if we are going to pay for PDF converters, developers should implement OCR features if they want to offer complete solutions.

Read Ashraf's comment and decided to give it a miss for the simple reason that I've taken a different route when converting PDF’s to an editable format.
PDF documents are extremely complex internally and general defeat most converters in doing a decent job.
The last time one was offered it failed miserably to convert a video camera manual.
So I used a free program (PDFill PDF Tools) to convert the manual to a series of images..
PDFill PDF Tools available at the following link.:-

Then I used the exceptionally good ABBYY OCR software that came free with a Lexmark printer on the images.

This produced the best conversion of a PDF document I have ever seen, it was perfect.

Had been testing PDF to Word Converter today even before this giveaway, so, took some time to test this as well. Convert ordinay pdf to readable Word doc format, with no choice whether to convert as flowing text or as original format. For ordinary purpose will suit one's need, a keeper, specially since it is free today. For the price, it is even better than some much higher priced converter I have tried today, with even the promise to return you money if you find something that can convert better than it. What a shame. For freeware, I found UniPDF the best, maybe comparable to this one too. But for paid, which I got it free from a giveaway at BitsduJour, Abby PDF Transformer, beats every converters hands down, free or paid.

Always on the look-out for good PDF convertors so this was initially welcome. That is, until I actually tested it. I think Ashraf is being polite when he states that 'Needs improvement in terms of conversion quality'.What you get is massively fragmented and the end document is too convoluted to make sense of.It is still a bit raw for Prime Time.

ACPsoft PDF tool is a indeed tiny and utterly useful procedure, which strongly support convert PDF files to common files such as DOC, HTML, TXT which were frequently used by us in our daily life or work. And moreover, it also enables users to convert them in a opposite direction. Thank you so much for GOTD members' sharing !

Pros :

1. Support ample of common files conversion.
2. Concise interface and simple to use well.

Cons : Don't support deleting the PDF DRM protection. Because of around the Internet more and more PDF books are protected by DRM, if this tool cannot be bundled with a function of PDF DRM Removal, then this one will be useless in the upcoming days.

Additional, Free PDF DRM Removal located here, cost you $0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000 . LOL, ePUBee Free PDF DRM Removal, http://www.epubee.com/pdf-drm-removal.html .

LOL`````````````` Enjoy the wonderful combination suit which were consisted of these two free tools.
