My job requires multiple reports to be generated for various audiences. Those reports often need input from a multitude of sources, not all of which are formatted exactly as the final report requires. If all the documents were Word documents, copying and pasting would be simple; however, oftentimes certain data sources are in PDF format. Able2Extract Professional allows me to convert PDFs to other file types, including Word documents that then allow me to select text, edit text, and reformat the information as necessary. It is a vital tool in the information consolidation my organization does on a daily basis.
  • Converts PDFs to other file formats that allow for text manipulation
  • Accurately converts text with little to no editing necessary to ensure the program "got it right" in translating text
  • Works quickly without long render times
  • GUI can always improve, even if it's currently good
  • Better how-to instructions to address initial learning curve
  • Functionality could be inserted into Adobe Acrobat Pro, potentially merging products
Able2Extract is extremely helpful if you have a PDF with text that you want to manipulate. By converting it into another file format that is more conducive to text, you can correct spelling mistakes, copy paragraphs, and remove them or relocate them. Since I had to take spreadsheets and text from a PDF and insert them into a Word document, Able2Extract Professional was the exact tool I needed to avoid simply taking screenshots.
  • Able2Extract Professional allows me to compile annual reports without having to seek out creators of supplemental material and ask them to rerun their reports in a different file format
  • Our business objective of maintaining consistent branding is achievable through converting PDFs into file formats where we can alter text and swap out logos
  • Able2Extract Professional has the speed and ease of use we need to meet our reporting deadlines

I often receive reports and other information in PDF form from clients, that I need to be able to edit or analyze. In most circumstances, the conversion feature in Acrobat is very limited and does not handle complex information. Able2Extract has been invaluable and has saved me countless hours of editing and entering. There is very little that it can't handle.
  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.
  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.
Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.
  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
None, except for conversions in Acrobat.
