    "OK...sort of"

    February 21, 2010  |   By Lotus954

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5

    Pros

    It does convert the PDF to Word..mostly

    Cons

    You have to do a WHOLE LOTof adjusting

    Summary

    Somehow I lost the Word version of a book I wrote and I wanted to edit some of it. I downloaded this program and it converted it to Word. Because of the size of the book, I had to do it in sections, which, if it worked, I didn't mind doing. The book had both text and photos. For some reason, the fonts changed sizes without warning in several places, a layer of black, which I was able to delete, was put over each of the photos. The formatting was totally off. I finally decided that the time it was taking to fix what was done would have been longer than it would have been if I just retyped it into word. The next decision was that the minor edits I wanted to make weren't worth either. If you are just trying to convert something simple, like a form, this program might be fine for you. If you are trying to convert something more complex, this program won't do it for you.

    "Very fast, but not intuitive and result was ugly."

    February 1, 2010  |   By skaizun

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5

    Pros

    It was very fast to download, setup, and run.

    Cons

    It took me a few seconds to figure out what I needed to do, as the interface has everything you need, and even tells you what to do, but it still wasn't as intuitive as I would have liked. Result was inverted and illegible.

    Summary

    I have Win Vista SP2 and ran "Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5" on a 5-page PDF file, which was, basically, an image file (i.e., not "text" in the purest sense). As such, I wasn't expecting much, but the result was that only the largest print items were legible, and everything was mirror-image and sideways. As such, it was virtually useless to me. I tried it with a "pure text" PDF file, but it fared no better (no mirror-image, though). I can't recommend this program.

    "It did okay, generally."

    December 21, 2009  |   By Gartzan

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5

    Pros

    I needed some legal forms that I could modify. I had to do a lot of tweaking afterwards, to get it in a useful format but this sure saved me a bunch of time over starting from scratch.

    Cons

    I'm sure it was because of the PDF specs but it seemed to create a LOT more individual components that was necessary. A pain in the backside but overall it was worth the effort

    Summary

    It took me a bit to figure out what all it did and I had to change a lot of things like font settings and it duplicated every drawn line. It was very fast and once I got the hang of it, it was manageable, which is what I was looking for. The fact that it was free is great and it did, in fact, save me a bunch of time. I will probably use this more in the future and will keep it on my radar to see of the author enhances it more. Yes, it could be better but it could also be a LOT worse. Thanks to the author.

    "PDF to a Picture in WORD"

    October 27, 2009  |   By issachar5

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5

    Pros

    Converts PDF to word, keeping pic and words.

    Cons

    There isn't much use to having your PDF go to WORD if you can't change anything in the document...and you can't change anything in the document if it is a picture.

    Summary

    Not of any real use.

    "Takes your pdf, makes it an image and puts it in word"

    October 8, 2009  |   By foolygoofy

    Version: Free PDF to Word Converter 1.5

    Pros

    None, what it does is a waste of time and memory space.

    Cons

    All of it.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time, for every in your pdf it makes an image and then inserts each image into word. I would expect to be able to copy and paste text or edit the text. For this I recommend ReadIris Pro, I tried a few versions, 11 pro found it to be the best were I can take a pdf and make it text, formating may not be perfect, but you can work with something.
