PDF to Word Free is a powerful document conversion tool for Mac. The app enables you to convert PDF files into Microsoft Word documents, preserving the layout and formatting of the original file. The app works with all kinds of PDF documents, even those with complex layouts that combine graphics, tables, and images. It works with password-protected PDFs, including documents with printing and copying restrictions.
The free version of PDF to Word has a beautiful and intuitive interface that makes the conversion process quick and easy. Since it supports batch conversions, you can add multiple documents to the conversion queue and the app will process them in the same operation. It is possible to convert entire documents or select particular pages or a page range for conversion. Besides the DOCX format, the app outputs to DOC for Microsoft Word 2003-2007, and TXT.
A great feature that the app includes is the built-in PDF viewer, which, in addition to let you view documents, includes tools to detect graphic elements in the document. With a click, the app is capable of auto detecting areas where tables are images are present. It also lets you mark graphic elements manually for a more accurate selection. Marking tables and images in the original file ensures that they will be preserved in the output document.
In my testing, I used the app to convert a PDF manual with several images and tables. The conversion process was fast and the result was optimal, with every element in the right place.
PDF to Word Free is the limited edition of PDF to Word Converter by Lighten Software. As such, it lets you convert only three pages per document. The full version of the app has a cost of $29.99.
