Thanks to Able2Doc you'll only need to open a PDF file with it to be able to select the text. Furthermore, the Able2Doc application will allow you to save the selection (or full file) as DOC, ODT or RTF, that are compatible with Microsoft Word and with the vast majority of text editors.
How Able2Doc works is very simple, as soon as you install it you will have to open a document, select the text that you want to extract and save it to a format that is less restrictive than PDF. You'll only have to click on the “Convert to Word” button to be able to view all the different options that are available in the application.
The program's interface includes quite a few buttons, but the truth is that the vast majority are unnecessary, because they can only be used to change the page, reach the end of the document or capture a specific area.
