What Users Can Learn About EULAs From Adobe

I agree check box

In a controversial move last month, Adobe announced a warning that any Creative Cloud subscribers using older versions of the apps is liable to get sued by third parties.

According to news stories, the reason seems to be due to legal issues between Adobe and Dolby Labs. In short, there are claims that Adobe included Dolby technology in software and subscription packages without paying the appropriate royalties. As a result, Adobe’s users are no longer licensed to use the infringing software.

This incident underscores some major points about users, software apps, and End User License Agreements (EULAs) that connect them, which deserve some attention.

As a software user, it’s important to think about what it means to your usage and ownership of the tools you use.

How To Convert Any File To Excel

Analyzing data with Excel

In the world of digital file formats, conversion is always a necessity. There are times when you don’t always have the right format for a certain task or assignment.

But the good news is that you can always get your content formatted properly, whether you’re converting from YouTube to MP4, PNG to JPG or PDF to Excel.

There’s only one obstacle. When converting from one format to another, sometimes your content isn’t in a format from which your document converter can extract the data. And this is especially true with PDF converters. What happens when the tables you need aren’t within a PDF file?

You can have tabular data that’s in MS Word or PowerPoint, for example. After all, there’s no rule on where you’ll find your data!

Naturally, the most common solution people have is to convert that file to a PDF, so that they can convert that resulting PDF to the format they need. But that extra step that wastes so much time, and even more so if you don’t have a tool that can create PDFs on hand. You have to search online or even download free software to create a PDF first.

Believe it or not, there’s a shortcut that allows you to convert non-PDF content to Excel.

Now, you can have as many PDF tools as you want that will handle a full document conversion without choking on it, but what they won’t do is give you the ability to deal with the smaller details.

What are we talking about? Headers and footers.

These headers and footers unfortunately get included with full document conversions. Consequently, when you convert the whole document, your converted results get cluttered with them popping up in between the tabular data you want. This means some post-conversion clean up in Microsoft Excel, which we all know is a waste of time.
