PDF to TXT is a simple application that allows you to convert PDF documents into plain text. The utility has the ability to extract the content of your PDFs in order to reuse it in other circumstances.
With a straightforward and user-friendly interface, the program lacks any advanced settings so that anyone can manage the tool with ease. Therefore, the first logical step is to add files to the application and configure the list of files to convert. You can import one file at a time or multiple files at once to prepare them for batch conversion. Once documents are loaded, the tool informs you about the size and the number of pages of each item. What is good about this program is that it supports partial conversion – namely, the utility lets you convert specific pages of large PDFs, leaving the unnecessary pages unprocessed. The tool supports viewing the content of the files you loaded by double-clicking on them – however, the app misses a PDF viewer of its own, so opening the documents requires a third-party software program specialized in reading PDF content. Unfortunately, the tool neither supports merging multiple PDFs or a selection of pages from separate documents, nor provides the handy OCR function for scanned or image PDF text recognition.
The application is designed for home users who are looking for a simple PDF to text converter. Yet, the price is rather high considering the features it provides.
