Useful Websites #6

Real Estate Agent with LAER Realty Partners


I have joined the blog-a-day blogathon for next 30 days. This is day 6 of the 30-day-challenge.

In these 30 days, what better could it be to share something either I learned from some of the zActiveRainers or some other resource online and share it with the group?

At times, I may not know where and how I learnt about the websites and may not be able to give due credit to someone who informed me about that, but I still want to Thank all of them who contributed to my knowledge which I plan to share.

You can create a free account on many of these websites and some of them may have some minimal subscription fees. I am sure, these websites will help you in your business - one way or another.

(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with any of these websites not do I derive any income from any of these sites - except that I do subscribe to some of these services.)

Here is #6:

This is an online service that converts your PDF documents to a editable WORD documents – in most cases, the conversion is excellent, though in few instances, the converted file was an image file and was not editable. But as I said, the conversion is excellent.

The way it works is very simple. Go to, select your file to convert, select ‘DOC’ or ‘RTF’ format and provide your email address – and in few minutes, you’ll receive an email from them with a WORD document attachement. It’s that simple as 1-2-3.

Step 1


Step 2


Step 3

                 Select PDF to convert:

                    Convert PDF file to:

                      Email file to:

This is what they claim (and yes, it’s very true - at least, that's my experience..…)


Our broad set of PDF-to-Word conversion capabilities means you don't have to waste hours reformatting the content retrieved from your PDF files. Read below for some of the most useful.

For Text and Fonts –

Text formatting. Retain the same size and color as the original text.

Bold & italics. Retain bold and italic formatting wherever used.

Maintain rotated text. Keep text correctly rotated, irrespective of its orientation.

Hyperlinks. Retain active hyperlinks.

Ligatures. Easily convert all ligatures, such as fiftff, and more.

Multi-language text support. Accurately convert all Unicode-based text, in any LTR (left-to-right written) language.

Retain font appearance. When a PDF file uses a font not installed on your system, we'll replace it with the best alternative font.

Advanced font handling. When PDF files comprise text that has been custom font encoded, we use advanced OCR-based technology to extract text, not possible with other PDF-to-Word converters.


For Paragraphs and Page Layouts –


Proper paragraphs. Generate Microsoft Word files with correctly formatted and easy-to-edit paragraphs.


Justification & alignment. Maintain the correct alignment for paragraphs - left, right, centered, or fully justified.


Bullet and numbered lists. Ensure the layout and indenting of bulleted and numbered lists mirrors the original PDF.


Columns. Reproduce multi-column text layouts using Microsoft Word's built-in Column tools.


Headers/footers. Detect and recreate headers and footers.



For Tables –


Convert tables. Turn tabular content into editable tables.

Advanced table detection. Detect and accurately convert complex tables that normal converters can't, including tables without borders and cell formatting.

Re-use tables. After converting your PDF files, copy and paste tables into other applications such as Microsoft Excel, Google Spreadsheets, OpenOffice, and more.



And for images:


Broad image support. Easily convert all types of images, including pictures, screenshots and photos, with complete support for the PDF specification's image filters.

Scalable charts, graphs, diagrams and vector images. Convert vector-based images into scalable objects in Microsoft Word, wherever possible.

Microsoft Word drawing shapes. Re-use graphics (originally Shapes and SmartArt) in Microsoft Word.

Transparency. Accurately retain transparency in images.

Backgrounds. Convert background images and ensure they remain behind the primary page content.

Effects.. Retain the look of effects like textures, patterns, shadows, and mirroring.

Order content. Correctly stack images and text in front or behind other elements so they appear the same as in the PDF file.


Try it out – I am sure, you’ll like it

Thanks for sharing this site. I will try it as I lost the source for one of my own PDFs and I hate having to re-type what's already been written but lots of these conversion tools don't work well so always searching for a better one.

Thanks for sharing this discovery in your post. I've used Scansoft's PDF Converter4 Professional version with a lot of success. It was fairly inexpensive (under $50) with great success.
