A Portable Document Format is a universal computer application which is designed by Adobe Systems in 1993. It is an application that is used for preparing a number of documents on several subjects. It is a file format that has an advanced set of features to equip a user with flexibility and compatibility across multiple platforms. A user can incorporate a number of graphics or animated images, tables, columns and content into a document. The compression algorithms compress the size of the files making them portable across platforms. With the passwords, you can encrypt the content of the documents making them more secure and intact.
As there are many documents stored or presented in a Portable Document Format application, there arises a need to convert the PDF documents into any other file format. For instance, there is a need to edit the content which is stored in a non-editable document.
You can make use of PDF to Word converter tools in create an editable file out of a non-editable document. A user can then make necessary changes as per the requirement. Once you are through with the changes or updates in a Word file format, you can again convert the editable text back to a PDF file format. One can also make use of these tools in order to convert a PDF not only to Word but also to Excel, Power Point, Postscript and other such applications. The ‘batch’ and ‘partial’ conversion is also possible with the help of advanced or modified computer tools. In case of ‘batch’ conversion, you can easily create multiple documents out of any format. With ‘partial’ conversion, a person can select a few pages to be converted into a desirable format. Advanced computer tools also equip a user with the OCR feature to convert even the scanned PDF files into an editable format. In this way, you can easily make use of any amount of information even if it is saved in a non-editable format.
