Create PDF

Able2Extract can create PDF documents from all printable formats. The program installs a PDF printer on your system which makes it possible to create PDF files by selecting Able2Extract’s PDF print option in any document processing tool. The same can be accomplished just by opening the document you would like to create PDF from in Able2Extract. The process is automatic and fast.

Furthermore, Able2Extract can encrypt your documents during the PDF creation process, and set passwords and file permissions to make sure your PDFs are safe and secure.

Convert PDF

PDF conversion is the feature users will find most useful. With Able2Extract, you can convert PDFs to more than a dozen popular file formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, AutoCAD, Image, etc.

If you need to convert multiple files at once, there’s a Batch conversion feature and if you have scanned documents to deal with, Able2Extract’s OCR feature can extract all the data from what is essentially just an image of text and graphics.




Edit PDF

Able2Extract also lets its users edit PDF on the spot without the need for conversion. You can add text, change fonts, insert pictures, and more to otherwise non-editable file formats by default.

The newest version 12 also comes with the ability to edit PDF forms (the feature you’ll be using to enter the giveaway), insert blank PDF pages and add Bates numbering. Also, Able2Extract offers a myriad of annotation options for smooth and efficient PDF collaboration.






So, if you would you like to have this productivity-boosting tool for free and get the most out of your PDF files, try your luck and enter the giveaway. There’s not much time left until the deadline, so act fast.

And if you’re not interested, but you know someone who could use an all-in-one PDF solution to improve PDF workflows, make sure to share the news. Good luck!

PDF tools for every occasion

In the modern everyday work environment, the need for frequent and constant sharing of digital documents, especially PDFs, is paramount for keeping your business running smooth and without any hiccups, no matter what exact type of occupation you are currently involved with. Of course there are some distinct differences between jobs, but in areas of marketing, banking, bookkeeping, accounting, analytics, human resources and many more, it is pretty safe to say that a lot depends on the uninterrupted and even flow of information.

On the other hand, one specific issue has been plaguing the business world basically ever since the inception of digital communication, and that is the difference of interpreting the formatting of all files. Every operating system has its own way of extracting and presenting the data that every file is built from, and this can create some serious unpleasantries if the file was created on one OS, and is being viewed on a different one. Usually this issue is presented by the file being displayed with some major or minor glitches, depending of what it is consisted of, and in rarer cases it can be completely unviewable by the recipient. But naturally there is way to overcome all of this, and it’s actually quite simple; convert the file to PDF form before sending it.

The Portable Document Format is exceptionally great for sharing important business documents because it can be perfectly viewed on all operating systems and devices, so you don’t have to worry if the receiver will have problems with viewing your file. Luckily, converting your file to PDF is very simple and can normally be performed from inside each software where the file was created in (just switch to PDF in the Save As window). The only lacking of the PDF is that it cannot be edited in any traditional fashion, but it requires software that can extract all the information from it and recreate it to the format that it previously was (before the conversion ever took place). This format also offers other useful advantages, like securing your file with passwords and limiting permissions.

Depending if your job requires you to travel a lot, or spend substantiating amount out of the office, we wanted to share with you a couple of highly useful online tools and software solutions, with whom you can perform literally all operations related to PDF files, either from your office, or from portable devices while you’re on the go.

Work with PDF Files from a Desktop Computer
The most practical and user-friendly way of handling any PDF-related activity is of course via your computer, offering many advanced choices that other types of software simply cannot. Besides the most frequent conversion operations, they allow rotating, splitting, merging several PDFs into one, batch conversions of multiple files at the same time etc…

PDF Converter Elite 5 allows all of these options, and it comes with a custom editing of scanned documents, editing files while still in PDF form. It also comes with a 7 day free trial period, so you can check out all of its features in great detail.

DoPDF is a similar program that has a lesser amount of precise options, but for non-english users it can be more useful, as it offers over 30 languages.

Use Online PDF Tools When You’re on a Business Trip
Not being able to access your paid desktop program can be troublesome if you have to perform a conversion while on a business trip, but there is an adequate alternative; free online tools. Normally, they cannot perform all the work such as custom PDF to Excel conversion that PDF Converter Elite has, but you can use them for some basic conversion from PDF to Excel, Word, PowerPoint or to merge PDFs.

PDF to Excel is a simple tool to use when you need to convert PDF tables to Excel spreadsheet. It doesn’t require an email address so you don’t need to worry about your privacy.

Cometdocs is suitable for all types of conversions and PDF creations. You can choose to register or to use the tool without any registration.
