PDF to XML2.3
PDF to XML is a simple-to-use program with a pretty self-explanatory name - it allows you to convert PDF files into XML items. It can be seamlessly figured out, even by inexperienced users.
The interface of the application is based on a wizard-like interface where you can import a file by using only the file browser, since the 'drag and drop' method is not supported. Unfortunately, you cannot work with multiple items at the same time.
In addition, you can set the PDF password if the file is protected, establish the output directory and filename, as well as make PDF to XML overwrite existing files.
Several configuration settings are available when it comes to the conversion mode. Therefore, you can specify a page range and customize the XML tags when it comes to the cell, column, line, page, paragraph and row. Last but not least, you can enable the tool to automatically open the output file when the task is done.
The program runs on a low amount of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't be a concern to the computer's resources. It has a good response time, quickly finishes a task and outputs documents with a good quality regarding the text layout. We have not come across any problems throughout our evaluation; PDF to XML did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, PDF to XML delivers a pretty straightforward solution for PDF-to-XML conversions.
