Free PDF to Word Doc Converter

That's actually the name! Another application with the cost written into its appellation. I could get used to it. The other day I saw a More-Than-You-Could-Afford-with-3-Lifetimes-of-Income Rolex. Very discouraging.

Everyone uses Adobe Acrobat to send documents these days. Too bad for the maker that people never say, "Hey, acrobat that document to me." In any case, when you receive one and want to edit it, unless you own the full Adobe Acrobat, which is quite expensive, you cannot. You could try copying and pasting the content, but you lose much of the sweet goodness of the original that way.


Now there is hope for those who don't own the full Adobe program. (Hey, don't look at me, I have it.) The aptly named Free PDF to Word Doc Converter will do the job for you by extracting "text, images, shapes from PDF file to Word Doc file and preserve the layout. It can convert all the pages, or any pages range of the PDF file."
