@ Rob, # 57

The Wondershare version is 4.0.1 : http://my.jetscreenshot.com/20413/20130718-175y-9kb

When you submit the coupon code Giovanni provided, plus your name and email address, they will send you 3 emails automatically. Two of them are for 5 euro rebates off their other software and one email, with Subject line "Ihre Anfrage bei wondershare.de", which confirms the details you provided them plus "Seriennummer" - that's the reg number, you'll need to activate the software.

All 3 emails hit my Spam folder, so look in there, you might find a fresh batch of emails from them.

If you are a previous client, you might want to use a different email address, so that they would consider you a "new" client and supply you with the download link, which is: http://download.wondershare.de/pdf-converter-pro_full881.exe

If you just copy and paste that, you'll be able to download the pdf-converter-pro_full881.exe but you will still need your own Serial Number to activate it.

Good luck!

Thanks Giovanni,
I managed to translate some of the Wondershare page, and I think I got it (EXE) and the Registration code (in an email).
However, when I browsed around my Wondershare Profile page, I noticed that I had purchased an earlier version of that program in 2011.
I am now having doubts as to whether I downloaded the current version, or just requested a re-emailing of my 2011 purchase registration.

Could someone (that has successfully followed Giovanni's suggestion) let me know if the version they received, is this one -
Version: 2.6.1

As promised by Giovanni, the Wondershare converter DID turn out to be real gem. Thanks for the coupon and the link! I really put it through the mill: it turned a 1391-pg PDF (5.8 Mb) into a 1395-pg Word doc (19.2 Mb) in exactly 17 minutes, preserving everything inside just as it was in the original.

It was much faster with another batch of PDFs, ranging from 2 to 48 pages and all colors, tables and fonts of the legal documents and brochures were transferred "as is" to the .docx files.

Thanks again, Giovanni, for being such a wealth of info for all of us. Your time and efforts do not go unnoticed here, so keep it up!

######### More to the point on today's offering #########

I just finished playing around with the current GAOTD...


Pay attention to the short blurb in the !readme! file. You HAVE to run the setup.exe file as an Admin.

The problem for me was, that right after the ZIP extraction, the .exe file launched by itself and I foolishly proceeded with the installation, even though I had already read this in the instructions:
"NB: if you are a Vista OS user you will probably need to run Setup.exe and Activate.exe in the name of administrator on the PC."

So, the first time around, it seemed as if everything went without a hitch... but then when I launched the software, it asked for an email and a registration number. Obviously, I was running the trial version, which limits users to only the first THREE PAGES of a document: http://my.jetscreenshot.com/20413/20130718-lyf8-58kb

After an uninstall, I re-setup everything by right-clicking on the .exe file and running it as an Admin, made sure I did NOT launch the app at the end, activated it through the Activate.exe file and now the full version works perfectly. Clicking the middle button on the top right shows the product registered to giveawayoftheday and the registration code field is populated.

Initial thoughts: very easy to use, fast, hasn't crashed on me once, there is an option to either ADD FILES or just drag-and-drop them into the working window area (same as the Wondershare app). When the file is ready, a little pop-up tells you that the file is done. You can launch the converted file directly from the app itself with one click or open the folder, where it was saved. The program creates a default Save location under its own name inside your Documents but by using the Browse button, you can change the desired destination for your files.

One interesting and nice feature I noticed in both of these programs: when doing a BATCH conversion, you can customize Full vs. Partial conversion for each individual file. My old program (All Free PDF to Word Converter) had some limitations in that regard but now, for a Full conversion, I just leave the default "All Pages" selection as it is. For a large PDF, where I only need a portion of it turned to Word, I can use the drop-down menu and specify the exact page number or the range of pages (10-100).

I noticed, however, that when a document contains clickable links, once converted to Word, those links contain a line THROUGH the words. This will take a bit of experimenting to get rid of those lines. Moving the text further down the page helps but the lines are still visible and there is no way to select them with the mouse or the cursor in order to delete them.

Overall, I give this app Thumbs UP and recommend that everyone at least tries it. It might not work exactly the same way on all machines but if you at least follow the instructions, run the setup as admin and play around with it a little, you might find some useful applications for it. You never know when you'll need to tear a PDF to shreds and rebuild it in Word to your liking.

Thanks GAOTD for another useful addition!

In my comment #4 my lack of success with today's offering was found to be problems within my computer. However, on my laptop there was a big improvement in the layout but it still was not as good as I had hoped.
I downloaded Giovanni Wondeshare recommendation and as a test of the OCR converted a 92 MB PDF image file to word. It wasn't the most rapid procedure but went without a hiccup and produced a readable and searchable document, quite amazing.
Many manuals posted online are in PDF format and contain image files and hence are not searchable, a necessity in a manual.

Wondeshare PDF converter pro does the job of converting remarkably well!

To ghudak, currently @ # 37

Indeed, you are supposed to download the trial version (4.0.1). Make sure it is the Windows version, and not the Mac version.

Click the Activieren key and after filling in the request form you will almost immediately get the registration key in your email. Register your installed program using the key provided in the email.

Hope it helps.

I donwloaded Wondershare's giveaway mentioned by Giovanni but I am not sure whether my product will work after the trial offer has ended because the registration code I received in the mail is different than the one Giovanni mentioned. It still says my software is registered when I check on the "about" tab though.

Tested - #1. UniPDF. #2. Wondershare. #3 Simpo.

PDF to Word results with these programs, is nothing more than a image inserted into a blank Word document. Probably more options, but that's all I needed it for, and if that's all I get, I would rather just use my screen capture (with better clarity), make an image and insert the image into a blank Word document and skip these foolish programs.

UniPDF results were clear, whereas Wondershare were unclear and fuzzy.

When installing UniPDF, be very careful as the installation process tries to quietly install 3 additional programs -- (1) Snap.do Smartbar, (2) Foodbuzz, for food and recipe information, (3) Price Peep and additional search changes and tool bars.
. . . . . . > With UniPDF, Caution is advised. Read everything on the install carefully, and don't just click-away to make your install faster.

I purchased this app a few years back and it was so horrible, I emailed them and they never responded. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE APP and it has not improved, either.

Here is what I do (it is bit time-consuming, but may be worth it):
Get the PDFTools app (http://download.cnet.com/PDFTools/3000-10743_4-10523933.html)
Use the SPLIT A PDF option in this app then select SPLIT PAGE RANGE at the bottom of the menu. Select whatever pages you want or select 1 to whatever # pages there are. It will re-create the PDF as copyable. Then you can copy paste the test from the new PDF to a Word doc or text doc. Yes, it is a bit of work, but I use this app because I download NUMEROUS LOCKED PDFs froma subscribed magazine site and this method actually UNLOCKS them.

Since PDF is a print-only medium, with normal word processing information (like text flow) suppressed in favor of non-editable page layout, the wonder is that these programs can get anything out even remotely resembling editable word processing. That is, unless you use word processing as a page layout program, rather than for creative writing (i.e. words).

I have seen PDF to "something" programs turn a PDF into a page layout in Word, but it wasn't very editable as text, only in terms of positioning objects on the page.

The judgement on these programs has to be "which works better". I've not found one that is perfect all the time, for any price. Perhaps as AI becomes better, the programs will get better too.

Also, the Simpo PDF-to-Doc product tries to auto-load it's converted output document using your registered .doc program and show it to you open on screen, so if your own .doc program hangs, if you even have one, then you'll never see your output .doc file in a directory anywhere until you reboot, or Ctrl-Alt-Del to the task manager and resolve your .doc opening challenges.

(Yeah, yeah, I know, fix my MS Word ... but all I wanted to do was convert some PDFs to Docs for use ELSEWHERE, and instead, Simpo tried to open them here on this non-Word-based PC -- and that was NOT my goal!)

Are you listening, Simpo? Don't do anything I don't tell you to do, and don't do anything you don't tell me you're gonna do, and give me first refusal to abort from any task you toss at me. Thanks.

There is not, nor can there be, a PDF to Word converter that can work perfectly.

The software simply cannot deal with every possible contingency that could be encountered. For example, the majority of PDFs out there suffer from some or all of the following:

- Many PDFs have been edited and re-edited and re-re-edited, ad nauseum, until they are a jumbled, fractured mess of PDF objects.
- There are many, many versions of many, many PDF editors and PDF creators and PDF converters and PDF writer utilities in general use these days. Many of these PDF producers create inferior PDF objects that are subsequently very difficult to convert to Word docs.
- There is no universal method specifying how a PDF writer should create its PDF objects. Two different PDF writers, using the same file as input, will quite likely produce vastly different PDF output files (i.e., one writer might produce a 25 K file, with 50 objects, using PDF 1.4, while the other writer might produce a 60K file, with 85 objects, using PDF 1.5).
- Most PDFs have design flaws. Numerous big, fat books have been written about how to properly compose a PDF. But very few PDF authors have bothered to read those books. (GIGO)
- Many PDFs have embedded fonts that aren't available in the Word software on the host system, so font substitutions are used during the translation process. This can result in a myriad of translation problems (character mappings; font attributes; ligatures; and on and on...).
- Error handling routines from conversion product to conversion product can vary between "robust and well-thoughtout" to "non-existent". But even the best products often have no recourse other to just bypass the problem.
- PDF to Word conversion software is outdated. Most of them have not evolved much at all, while PDF has been adapting to the ever-changing landscape of technology: graphics, forms, security, XML, CSS, accessibility, security, metadata, and so on.
- And, most importantly, there are many versions of PDF (1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, PDF/X, PDF/A, etc.), and many versions of Word (97, 2000, 2007, 2010, etc.) which, combined with the vast multitude of structural differences between the PDF and Word formats in the first place, greatly complicates any conversion process.
Some of the more complex issues simply cannot be dealt with by any piece of conversion software.

I've been working with PDF since its inception 20 years ago, and I often use this type of conversion software, because it can be a time-saver when I need to create a Word doc. But I also know it's impossible to trust it to capture every word and every character from the original input file. Therefore, I always proofread everything, after the conversion process. No matter the software used, I typically find a missing line or two, or a dropped apostrophe, or a mis-mapped character or three. Mind you, several products are SO bad, I don't use them twice.

I can hardly wait for PDF 2.0 (currently under development).

Same problems as with other PDF converters recently shared here and elsewhere:

-- no OCR Optical Character Recognition that can convert into text an image-based PDF containing JPG pictures of text

-- no smarts, this converts each original line in a text-based PDF into a separate section / text-box in a Word .doc, making a disconnected mess of a paragraph, breaking sentences into one-line bits regardless of punctuation or paragraph structures.

Instead, I suggest that anyone who needs a robust and flexible solution just search the web for [ adobe acrobat 8 pro free download full version ] to find Adobe's own release of their prior / older versions of Acrobat Reader / Writer / Converter, "official" versions that DO have OCR and sentence structure / paragraph structure recognition.

I suggest that Simpo and others update their offering to equal what can be had from their competition, rather than re-marketing tired old over-simplified tools -- we're gettin' wise to ya!

Installed on HP OPavililion, Win 7 premium but will not activate. Sent email to Simpo Support. Documents can be edited in Word 2010 but not Word 2003. When I convert to text, the file only contains three lines of "-------Converted by Unregisterd Simpo PDF Converter -------".

Looked like a simple to use product but thumbs down.

FYI. Using Giovanni's Wondershare link and Google translate, wasn't able to get translation to work properly in either Chrome or IE but was in Firefox and have successfully activated product. It lets you convert multiple files at once so threw a wide variety at it (forms, manuals, pamphlets with graphics, maps, etc). Handled them all well.

@19 or others...HELP HELP HELP !!!

I cannot get the Wondershare PDF Converter Pro to registrar. I have tried all the suggestions. Which version do you download? I did the "trial" from the link Giovanni gave in #19..

Reply   |   Comment by ghudak  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

I downloaded onto a Windows 7 64-bit laptop, installed it and ran the Activate application. It said it had activated successfully but when I ran the program it said it was a trial program. I then ran Activate again while the program was open and Help/About still said it was a trial version. So I closed the program and ran Activate yet again and help/About then said I had a registered program but offered me a Register button, so I clicked it and got a Register Successful pop-up.

Then I tried a document. It was 2 pages, the first with text in two different fonts and two font sizes and a small picture, the second page being three more pictures, two side by side above a third full width picture.

The results were nothing like I expected. Firstly the output was supposed to be in Word format, but I got an RTF file. The first page had the picture in the wrong place - after the text rather than two lines down, and the lines starting with a bullet had a question mark instead. The second page showed only the first picture.

As the file I chose was typical of what I would use the program for, I regard this Giveaway as pretty useless.

It should be called PDF to RTF converter, because that is what it actually is, and it doesn't do that properly.

I shall try some of the free ones suggested in the other comments, and if I find one that does the job properly, this Givaway will be uninstalled.

@ Giovanni - usually you're bang on with your recommendations but Nemo PDF to Word is virtually useless - very poor inaccurate conversion, impossible to use properly. Want a great alternative that WORKS every time and brings a big smile to your face? Try Wondershare PDF to Word. I just love it - works perfectly every time retaining all images and tables and etc.

My apologies to you!

When registering the Wondershare software using your instructions, I received *two* emails from them. I opened the second of the two, followed the instructions, and mistakenly believed that I had registered/activated the software. However, the activation code was actually in the first email of the two. Once I realized my mistake and entered the code provided there, the program was successfully activated.

So you were correct, and I was wrong. Thank you for your excellent
contribution today.

I think the acid test is has the software got OCR which is able to deal with extracting text from the "image text" and sadly most of the freeware OCR progs on offer are dreadful despite what they claim to be able to do. But then many of the commercial ones are unfortunately not much better. Despite the additional handling I would settle for a capable standalone OCR program! At one time it was possible to get a free copy of ABBYY Finereader Sprint Plus but not anymore. I think it was a free offering via the UK "Computer Active!" magazine

Most of the PDF to Word type offerings are hit or miss depending on what the software is being asked to do. I took Giovanni at his word and tried out UniPDF on a commercial catalogue which had numerous images, graphics and loads of textboxes and text. When the outcome file was loaded into Microsoft Word it amazed me by coming out perfect even the fancy shaped outlines were spot on. On the other hand Kingsoft, Libre Office, Open Office and Ashampoo all made a pig's ear of interpreting the outcome Word file not to mention Libre Office taking an eternity to load it up.

I tried Simpro and it just wasn't up to it so I have given it a bye. I tried out Wondershare's PDF Converter Pro but again it didn't perform as well as I expected - spliting tables over pages seems to be a problem for most of this type of converter software. Nevertheless, It is too good a freebie to overlook so I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth! It will probably be useful at some point.

Thanks again Giovanni for your mention of UniPDF!

Thanks to Simpo Technologies + GOTD.

Thanks to Giovanni for suggesting UniPDF & Nemo PDF.

As to the test of this GOTD software, let's be reasonable.
Most of us do no need to convert 1,500 pages of PDF document in one go.
No need to torture test the software past its breaking point.
I do conversion of PDF documents that are few pages long, about 3 times a year.

For those wanting OCR, you can image the PDF document and use any OCR.
I use ABBYY FineReader Sprint Plus.
This will give you editable text. You can send output to Ms Word or Excel.

I'm downloading at the moment to see. But on many occasions I have found that the best solution is to import a pdf as a book in Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/download). It will import the document as a "book" with the images etc.

You can then convert it to txt format and then use word or whatever to edit it. No it doesn't keep the formatting a lot of the time, but it's saved me many times and worthwhile wen one is scrambling on the net for a time sensitive solution.

Post 8.
It edits OK in Word 2010, not that that helps you.

I have a few pdf files and they converted perfectly, but I also have a large pdf file of 1,535 pages which on converting the program crashed, also on converting page numbers above about page 400 the program crashed again.
On the whole todays giveaway is well worth keeping for converting small files.

Well, I tried. I have yet to find a PDF to Word convert that does "what is advertized on the box".
I tried a few PDF files. Mostly a couple of forms I've been trying to convert. The text was there, the graphical formatting was not.
Since I was converting a form, none of the boxes, lines, check boxes converted.
Another swing and a miss. ;(
