This application is designed to help you convert PDF documents into editable Word files. Thus, you have the ability to extract PDF content in order to use it for whatever purposes you may need, with or without editing the text first.
The program's interface won't impress you too much – it is just plain simple and rather dull. Adding files is done exclusively by drag-and-drop, as the complementary method of browsing for files from within the app isn't provided. The tool's major asset is the ability to load multiple PDF files and convert them all at once into separate Word documents. Unfortunately, the tool doesn't come with a merge function – therefore, extracting the contents of multiple PDFs and binding them into a single large Word file in one go is not possible. The list of downsides includes the lack of previewing capabilities for the imported items. However, once the PDFs are added into the input panel, you are informed about the total number of pages in each file. This information might be useful to choose whether to convert all pages of a document or a page range you determine. However, for the free version of PDF-to-Word-Fast, such a feature makes no sense, since you can only convert the first two pages of each document anyway.
In short, this tool offers a simple and cost-free solution to convert single-page or double-page PDFs into Word files. The program's straightforward approach makes it easy to use and suitable for fast document processing. Yet, it doesn't work with scanned PDFs, since it does not include OCR functionality.
