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.

Are there any new game giveaways? There is sometimes a link at the top of this page about a game giveaway. Me and my grandkids enjoy the games you give away here. It appears that it is not an everyday thing. I enjoy the free software much more. Thanks GOTD!

Needs a lot of polish before being published as a commercial software.
There are free websites that do very good quality of conversion as of now.

I absolutely love the idea of having the ability to convert to and from a pdf combined in a single package and would've gladly kept this program on my system had the conversion results been better. After reading Ashraf's review of today's giveaway and that of UniPDF converter (which Giovanni lists as the best alternative and Steve rates very highly as well), I think I'll have to choose the latter. Sorry ACPsoft but thanks nonetheless for the offer.
@ Jlnum (#7, 8 & 9): If you're going to copy someone else's words (Ashraf's in your case, from his full review), wouldn't it be only proper if you gave them credit? In your defense, I can only conjecture that you weren't mindful enough the first two times and the third post was your way of trying to redeem yourself.

I used to have the original PDF995 installed on my computer & it worked just FINE. For some reason unknown to me, I deleted the damned thing & while I have it on an older computer & the old
version works fine, I can't copy & move to my newer desktop, I'm
not sure why, could be the version of Windows on my newer desktop.

I tried some of the other programs for converitn TO PDF & wound up
with a very nasty virus. Had to get the entire system cleaned out.
needless to say I'm ver antsy about installing any more freeware.

This particular software converts FROM PDF to another format & that's
not what I'm looking for. I need a stable, reliable & SAFE program
that will convert to PDF. Cany any one recommend one? I'd rather
have somethign "free" but if that's not possible, I'll pay for some
thing that truly is what it says it is.

This program does not support DBCS. I tried it.

Pass on this one. Result of the conversion is a mess when converting PDF to Word 2010 docx.

There are a plethora of PDF to XXX converters on the market, both free and retail, and NONE of them works well. Whomever finally produces a product that actually DOES this job will be able to retire the next day.

IMO, one of the best online poly-convertors is Online Convert http://www.online-convert.com.

I don't usually lend much weight to public comments, particularly when several seem to be from the same person or group. So take my comments for what they're worth. My experience is that image-type pdfs (such as from public court docket websites) tended to convert to a blank doc file. However, professional form-fill pdfs converted quite well and in substantially the same font and format.

You can copy anything into Open Office and then export it as a PDF for free. No need to heft $50 for something you can do for free!

#11 radmap try these http://www.nitroreader.com/ and http://www.bbconsult.co.uk/Resources/PDFFormFiller.aspx

Both are free.

To roadmap #11,
As far as I know, there is no converter from PDF to DOC that assigns fill-able fields. You have to assign them after the conversion.
This software does even poorer job of converting PDF to anything.

Will this program - or any of the free alternatives - create (form/field) fillable PDFs?

Horrible software, as it's not able to preserve images layout and tables in the final output, not to mention that it doesn't support PDFs encrypted files. It's pretty good to convert text only!

50$?? LOL!! Dudes, if you really believe your SW is worth 50 bucks you should come back on earth and eat humble pie for a while!!



PDF -> DOC/TXT/HTML conversions

http://www.7-pdf.de/7-pdf-website-converter/description (preserves whole websites in PDF format while retaining their layout)

http://www.pdfonline.com/pdf-to-word-converter (preserves hyperlinks)

http://www.convertpdftopowerpoint.com (==> No Installation needed)

Once you have created your PowerPoint presentations from your PDF files, how about convert them to FLASH files for free??


But what if you didn't want to install anything in your machine and most of your potential readers do not have MICROSOFT OFFICE installed in their machines? No problem...


And how about convert your PPT files from your PDFs into a more appealing VIDEO??

http://www.effectmatrix.com/PowerPoint-Video-Converter/Free-PowerPoint-Video-Converter.htm (the FREE VERSION even supports PPT to HD video format conversion ==> COOL!!)

Unlike other paid & free similar apps out there, it does not require either GhostScript or .NET.


* Tomahawk PDF + v3.1
One of the most advanced FREE word processing/pdf creation software packages available for the Window platforms.
With this magic FREE tool you can save professional documents in several different formats including rich text, HTML and PDF.
But it's also possible to extract a PDF, manage images, extract text from CHM files and run a thumbnail wizard.
The embedded Hyperlinks feature is also supported in the FREE version, which can run on Linux systems as well using Wine 0.9.19.
So who said we have to use Microsoft Word to create compelling PDF files with preserved embedded hyperlinks??

While PDF -> DOC conversion quality is not the worst I have seen, it needs improvement for a program that costs $49.95+

Terrible PDF -> HTML conversion quality

Does very bad DOC -> PDF conversions if the DOC file has anything more than simple text (e.g. images or tables)

Does not maintain hyperlinked words when converting DOC -> PDF

Only supports DOC and TXT -> PDF conversions — cannot convert other formats to PDF (aka is not a virtual printer)

Does not support PDFs encrypted with user password. (Does support PDFs encrypted with owner password.)

Will overwrite existing files with same name/extension in output folder without prompt

Is buggy. Crashes when trying to add watermark. Crashes when doing TXT -> PDF conversions.

ACPSoft PDF Converter is one of the most horrible software I have come across.

Totally useless.

Downloaded, installed ,activated. Tried and tested it.

Result of PDF to Doc test - Resulting doc fonts are ugly and messy.
Instead of editable text, separate images are created.

Result of PDF to Text test - Result - is a blank page. Nothing was converted.

Simple interface. Good to see 2 way conversion and optional batch handling. It would be nice if future versions handles a wider variety of formats.

Lack of drag and drop file selection is a weakness. There's also no right-click context or send to operation from Explorer. I'd appreciate the option to set a default output folder.Some folk will appreciate the header/footer and watermark features.

I converted a selection of files. The program offers to open the save folder for you.

A graphical pdf produced an empty file. OCR handling would be a useful addition.

Formatted text and text with graphics conversion is OK (no millions of individual text boxes here) but very far from perfect.

Decidedly better than some but not a patch on the free UniPDF to which Ashraf will no doubt draw your attention. I'd suggest you ignore today's offering this time round.

Ok had a bit of a hiccup with web based two part registration system but no e-mail is required which is pleasant.

Results were mixed

A well structured government PDF was "word" and position perfect, only the font had to be changed.

However a fairly well structured Banking flyer had some good and some bad image layout and as with many of this type of product since the source was highly varied the result was very poor even though the source OCR was good enough to easily cut and paste to word direct from a pdf reader.

Summary = not good enough yet but promising as an alternative.

Can it convert PDF files containing non-Latin-alphabet texts, like Bulgarian, Arabic, Hindi, or Japanese? Or at least Latin-with-a-twist, like Polish, Czech or Hungarian?
