In many professions, handling PDF documents is an everyday task. This format has the advantage of being much lighter than a text document but at the same time much more difficult to handle, that can be rather awkward under many circumstances.
A complete tool to work with PDFs
ABBYY PDF Transformer is a tool pack designed to handle, create and convert all types of PDF files. This doesn't only include the classic PDF formed by text or images, but also those that contain scanned text (and due to this are formed by images), those that are protected with passwords and those that come with codified text.
It has a utility to create PDF files from any type of document, although the really interesting tool is the one that does the opposite task: create documents from a PDF. These can have the same layout as the original document, or we can simply save all the text and images.
A necessary tool, that's very useful for people that use PDFs on a daily basis.
When we try to copy text in columns from a PDF, we get a text full of paragraph jumps and the order doesn't correspond to the original. With ABBYY PDF Transformer we can transform them into normal linear text obeying the original text distribution.
Furthermore, thanks to its internal OCR, it can recognize texts in 185 languages from any scanned PDF, so that we can recover it to use it in another document.
