Flexible Selection Options

At every turn, Able2Extract 9 guarantees you an accurate conversion. Select your text in a number of ways. Use your mouse to click and drag a square around the desired text. Or use the selection options on the command toolbar. No matter which method you choose, you get precise and accurate conversion output.

Convert Text, Tables, Images

The PDF recognition technology in Able2Extract 9 is powerful enough to distinguish between text, tables and images, resulting in faithful conversions that reproduce the text, table structure, and colours of the original.

Quick Copy Paste Portions to Clipboard

In some cases, you may not need a full file conversion. For such situations, Able2Extract offers you the ability to copy and paste text to the clipboard. This will let you quickly get sections of text into other file formats.

Advanced Custom Excel

Handle Difficult Table Structures

Able2Extract 9 comes packed with custom PDF to Excel features that let you treat each and every PDF to Excel conversion. You can easily handle intricately formatted tabular data from PDFs by manually adjusting the rows and columns of the resulting spreadsheet output.

Make Adjustments Visually:

Able2Extract 9 allows you to see what you are converting and how you want the PDF to Excel output to look like. The built-in proprietary PDF viewer lets you see where you want the rows and columns placed to tailor your data conversions.

Conversion Preview

Unlike other PDF converters, Able2Extract 9 contains a PDF Preview Panel, accessible through the custom PDF to Excel option, which allows you to preview your spreadsheet results even before the conversion begins. Adjust table structures until you are satisfied with them.

Template Saving

Get accurate conversion results for similarly formatted PDF documents. You can apply the same conversion settings for each PDF by saving them to a conversion template you can reuse. Convert monthly invoices that make use of complex table structures.

Exclusive Pinpoint Conversion

Eliminate the excess data conversions and convert only what you need. Convert a line, a page or a section. The Custom PDF to Excel even lets you manually adjust the row and column structure of your Excel output. Nowhere else do you get conversion control at this level.

The conversion engine works perfectly…. Personally, I DETEST the PDF format (and most of the other proprietary file formats that the ADOBE company generates), but people sometimes send me stuff using PDF. Now I can convert them quickly into real civilized "generic" files that can be used anywhere without special software required just to read them.
