Word Conversion Options - Standard, Frames, Text Only

When you have selected the data you want to convert in Able2Extract, you will have the option to make some different types of conversions into Word.

1. Standard (recommended) conversion to Word

This is the recommended conversion to Word because it offers the most accuracy and editability. It will retain background graphics, as a background image in the converted output, and the textual layout using the layout of the original PDF document for guidance. For most documents, this will provide the best looking output in a format that is simple to edit. As such, it is the recommended format for most documents.

To convert your PDF using this Word option, you can do so via:
File menu –> Convert to Word –> Convert to Word – Standard

Shortcuts
Toolbar:
Keys: CTRL + D (,), COMMAND + D ()

2. Frames conversion to Word

Selecting the Frames conversion option will result in the converted PDF to Word output retaining the background graphics and layout of the selected pages and items, but with the text appearing in individual text boxes in a new word document. This conversion is ideal for users that prefer to work with text boxes which can be easily moved within a document. Under certain circumstances, because the text boxes are designed to correlate with the structural positioning of the original PDF document, it may be possible to generate a more accurate layout than with the Standard conversion selection option.

To convert your PDF using this Word option, you can do so via:
File menu –> Convert to Word –> Convert to Word – Frames

3. Text only conversion to Word

The PDF to Word Text Only conversion option will only convert the text portions of selected items. The text will appear as a standard paragraph without special formatting or text boxes in a new word document. This conversion is most useful when preserving the look and feel of the PDF in Word format is not important, but the user desires easy access to the text information.
