    I tested using a PDF that I originally created with MS Word 2016 (.docx). PDFzilla produced 2 files: 1 appended Office2000 to the file name and both had a .doc extension. The resulting .doc files had lots of trash in the text areas, the fonts were all different from the original, and the column formatting was off. All in all, not a good conversion. I tested the same docx using an Aimersoft product and the conversion came out just like the original. PDFzilla appears to use very outdated engine to handle the conversion. I haven't tested any of the other formats since conversion to word is what I need most of the time.

    * Everytime you try to come back to the main menu, it send you to their web site ... so annoyed ... and if you try to do another file for the same operation it crashes and try to send a report to Microsoft ... really do they need to know that the developer sucks ???
    Otherwise ... is ok

    Downloaded, installed and registered without any problems. Attempted to convert a one-page PDF document (not protected at all) to DOC.

    Halfway through the conversion a message appeared: "File or command not found". Clicked "Accept" to acknowledge the message, and the program closed down. Repeated the exercise, without clicking "Accept". The .doc file that resulted was absolutely useless: 24 blank pages, with two plain text lines at the very end (lines that appeared halfway through the original PDF document).

    Unfortunately, if you have the older v.1.2 (like I had) this is overwritten by v. 3.9.

    Everyone in the world has a problem converting pdf docs into something useable. Why doesn't someone step up and make themselves a billionaire by devising a pdf converter that works and send Adobe into the trash heap of history?

    Gerard Brill, Its more to do with the PDF format. Its an end format that is designed for printing. The analogy is rock cakes. You've made a batch of rock cakes and you're looking for a way to get back to the raw ingredients to make meatloaf instead. Once everything has been mixed together, its very difficult to go back a step.
    Something like converting Word to Excel is easy, as the file format is designed for conversion. A word document can be converted to text. However, that text document can't easily be converted to Excel. Each line goes into its own line. A text document doesn't have the concept of columns. You have CSV and TSV text files, but they're specific document types within a file type... you can't put different document types in a PDF - no mattter how you enter text to a PDF, you're not going to get an easy conversion to Excel, Word or Powerpoint.

    Chris,
    I appreciate your explanation. However don't you think it's time that a better text compression software be devised than having to jerk around with this obsolete pdf system. Your analogy is rock cakes, mine would be how fuel injection has replaced carburetors. Once upon a time cars used to have their hoods up now superceding technology lets cars run smoothly so we can have more time to worry about Huawei. G Brill

    Gerard Brill, "with this obsolete pdf system"
    PDFs aren't obsolete, and aren't going away any time soon. For distributing documents (their prime use) they serve a wonderful purpose. Thats what they're designed for.

    tried using image to PDF converter which uses the included jpg2pdf.exe with a source JPG of dimensions 8858 x 12402 pixes 2.5Mbytes in size that I created using Ronyasoft poster designer... and all this produces is a PDF file 973 bytes in length with a single page with a blank white letterbox page 92.75 x 11.69 inches! Seriously! Wrong aspect ratio, wrong content and absolutely the wrong file size. Fail!

    Dingo, This is v3.9, so its completely different. Or completely the same. Usually if a version number is different, it means the version you have is out of date. Usual practice is to install the newer version, as it has newer features and sings better. Or not.

    After installing the program. When run a popup Windows Installer dialog appears asking me to find Microsoft Office Single Image 2010 SingleImageWW.msi. If cancel is clicked on the dialog window the program becomes unresponsive.

    I use Libre Office, just open any PDF file and then export to almost any file format you want for editing without loss of any formating of the original PDF file.
    Many other good word-processors can do the same thing, double conversion like this software, introduces errors in the formating.

    M. Aronson, A software review saying 'no time to test' is about as useful as my car review of the latest Ferrari. I've no time to purchase it (nor the money) but I downloaded the brochure just fine and when I rang up, they answered the phone within 20 rings! Thanks very much Ferarri!

    Would you buy a Ferrari based on that review?!

    Does this do OCR on image based text in a PDF document ?

    Reply   |   Comment by Louis  –  24 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

    krypteller, it STILL doesn't do OCR despite it being critisized EVERY single giveaway for not doing OCR on scanned PDF documents?!? Why do some developers not take notice of suggestions to improve or make their products fit for purpose! (Rhetorical) but feel free to answer for the hard of thinking ;-)

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  24 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+29)

    Louis, I have tried a scanned PDF and it could be converted by the PDF To Word function. But the output in Word file likes the plain text. I think it has the OCR.

    Suze, Thank you - I did miss that GAOTD, but did subsequently install the free version, to extract & reorder PDF pages, which worked really well - didn't realise the free version can do OCR as well - will give it a go

    Reply   |   Comment by Louis  –  24 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    krypteller, Thanks - I will pass in that case, don't see much use in it then - you may as well copy and paste the text in a PDF directly onto Word or Excel doc.

    Note: somehow my original comment on May 22 got deleted . . . here it is again:

    Louis, this does OCR very well (and it's free): https://bytescout.com/products/pdfmultitool/index.html. The business version was given away here a couple of months ago.

    Mical Stringer, I answered the question: "Does this do OCR on image based text in a PDF document ?" by a single word: "No".

    If someone asks if it does OCR, I assume he needs OCR. By answering by "no" I have indicated the program is not useful for him.

    Furthermore, I wrote "It has been offered here many times." So anyone interested in what was written about PDFzilla, only has to click the link above:
    https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/category/publisher/pdfzillacom/
    to read the comments of many comments posted on the products of PDFDzilla.

    I prefer the products of ABBYY. An old version, Finereader 5, can be found on the internet and is now free. I use ABBYY PDF Transformer and that has very good OCR. I use that to produce searchable pdf's of scanned letters and receipts, etc. Digital PDF's, not requiring OCR, can be edited by MS Office 2016 (costs now about $30) and the free LibreOffice.

    JAN NIEUWOUDT,

    Check whether Open Office can handle Word and Excel formats. It most probably does. It certainly is the case for Libre Office, which is close.

    McLean,

    You might not need Office to convert a pdf to a Word file, but I'd be very surprised if PDF Zilla included viewers to open all the file format it can create.

    And even that would not suffice. The whole point of using a Word or Excel file is to then use it, edit it, etc. So you either need Microsoft Office, or an equivalent.

    JAN NIEUWOUDT,
    I had Open Office on one of my computers a couple of years ago, until I was able to get MS Office for it. I can say that any document that MS Office apps can open, can also be opened using Open Office apps. Libre Office can do this also.
    I think what PDFzilla does is convert PDF files to the formats used by the various Office Suites that are available. All of those Suites I have used read the same formats.
    Hope this helps.
