As blog content provider I often need to convert files to a blog accessible format. In particular I sometimes need to convert PDF files into text files. I generally use free online PDF file converters but have run into one software package that does a better job than the free online converters and is worth a little extra money. PDF Converter Elite has three main advantages including ease of use, speed and versatility.
EASE OF USE
I generally skip documentation and just try to figure out the software on my hand. Good software should be intuitive enough that you can do this. PDF Converter Elite is super easy to use and I was able to figure out what to do in under five minutes. Most jobs can be done with four clicks on easy to understand icons.
Online sites are generally slower than installed software packages. Free is good but fast is also important. PDF Converter Elite was able to convert extremely large PDF files very quickly. I converted a 100 page plus document in seconds.
PDF Converter Elite converts a wide variety of files including: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Image, HTML, AutoCAD (.dwg, .dxf) and OpenOffice.
PDF Converter Elite is not perfect and I still needed to tweak the text converted from a PDF file. You end up with a lot of tabs that you don’t want when you convert PDF to text but this problem was lot less prevalent than with online sites I have used before. Overall, I would say this software is good value for the money.
