PdfGrabber is an application which enables you to convert PDF documents to other formats, such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, images, HTML, text and XML.
The user interface of the program is simple and intuitive. You can add PDFs to the list by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method. Batch processing is also supported.
When it comes to the output format, you have several options for each aforementioned format. For example, you can select either text-based (tabulators), layout-based (text boxes), multi-column layout, continuous text or text recognition with OCR mode, in the case of Word.
But you can also choose universal (complete structure), text-based (few columns), layout-based (many columns) in case of Excel, as well as a presentation or Pack&Go presentation for Powerpoint.
The "Images" option lets you pick between raster graphic, vector graphic, contained images or TIFF, while the "HTML" output also has an "ePUB" mode, and more.
Additionally, you can view PDF document properties, access a range editor, set the output directory and select the page range (all pages or selected ones).
Once you have pressed the "Export" button, you can change preferences for each output format. For instance, if you want to export to the Word profile, you can select the extension (RTF, XML or DOCX), text alignment, as well as enable several options (convert images and tables, carriage return, embed fonts, export lines as graphic, merge hyphenation).
When the conversion is done, you can set PdfGrabber to open the documents with the associated application, compress and email or open the output directory.
The program takes up a low-to-moderate amount of system resources and quickly finishes a task without popping up any errors. Also, there is a comprehensive help file you can use.
However, the text format is not always excellent and sometimes PdfGrabber causes some disasters in the output files, from this point of view. Also, the demo version is very restricted. Otherwise, we strongly recommend PdfGrabber to all users.
