before I download, is this any good? Ie. does it maintain tables and special formatting or is this lost in the conversion. I tried using the official adobe acrobat, with read/write compatability to save a pdf manual in a doc file, and I was quite disappointed that it did not do a good job of something as simples as tables.
It's only a trial program, you can only convert 1 pdf, 5 pages at a time. And limits you to 60 convertion. The converted version does not look so great for me as it looks out of alignment.
I downloaded this software and tried it. It actually does not keep the formatting and some lines of text are overlapping.
I am going to unistall it right away....
pdf2word loses much formatting. I've seen this in other programs too. I don't think there will be a real fix until xps (metro) is released.
None of these really works. If you hate Acrobat Reader that much, use a free PDF reader alternative. No program can recreate PDF as Word well, as Word is a cruddy document format that can't hold positioning properly and won't display the same across versions or even computers, whereas PDF will.
