Cisdem PDFConverter is a handy application designed to convert PDF files into a wide range of editable documents, images, and easily shareable files. Therefore, you can use this utility to extract the content of your PDFs in order to apply further edits with the tools available for DOCX, TXT, and RTFD format files. In addition, you can make your files publishable and shareable online as HTML documents, prepare public PowerPoint presentations based on PDF content, and create editable files for Keynote and Pages. Furthermore, you may save your PDFs as common images, as well as turn them into e-books for convenient reading on ePub-supported portable devices.

The program comes with a simple and friendly interface, so that any user can manage it with ease. You can load the files either by drag-and-drop or by selecting the files from within the browsing window. Once the PDFs have been imported, you will receive additional information about each document, such as the total number of pages and the file size. You don't have the ability to preview the files within the list panel, but if you want to inspect the content of a specific file, just click on the item and it will open in a separate window.

What is great about this tool is that you can convert specific pages from large PDF documents. With the partial conversion mode provided, you can easily set the page range for conversion, so that you can extract the content of selected pages only. Unfortunately, a merge function isn't available – therefore, you will not be able to obtain a single document comprising page selections from different files.

With a straightforward approach and a lack of complicated functions, the application is suitable for all users, regardless of their computer experience. The program is stable, converts in batches, and runs fast. Yet, I consider that the price is rather high, considering that you aren't provided with any output settings to configure, like file compression, turning images into black and white, or any other options meant to reduce the size of the output files.
