Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Not every computer user has Adobe acrobat on their device, therefore, it might
be a problem when you are supposed to edit, or at least view a document in a PDF
format. Not to mention that Adobe are not so easy to run, and not many people
have time or will to learn about this program. Most people are more used to
Microsoft Office's product such as Word, or excel to work, and when someone else
ask them to recreate an office file into PDF format file, it seems to be a waste
of time and energy.
Rather than learning to use Adobe, it will be a lot easier to get software that can help you convert the format of PDF into any format that you desired like PDF to Word. And as usual you can get if free on the internet. One of the well known freeware of PDF converter is gDoc Creator, and we will try to review it.
One big advantage of using gDoc is that it's a freeware. You don't need to spend any money purchasing the product. All you have to do is to download it from many sites that provide the link to do it. One suggestion is that anyone should be very careful downloading a free web based software. Always check whether the site is trusted, to avoid downloading a virus or malware. The best choice of site is always the product's official site.
GDoc works on windows platform. There are some reports that it doesn't work properly on windows 2000 or edition lower, but considering not many people still use that edition of windows, it shouldn't be a problem. GDoc creator will install itself perfectly in the application toolbar of Microsoft Office and makes it easier to convert any MS Office file into PDF. The neat function on gDoc creator is that the software works both ways, whether to convert MS Office files into PDF, or PDF into MS Office files.
Feature wise, gDoc is quite advanced. It has a feature of password to protect your files, with 128-bit encryption that ensure high security. In addition gDoc you can also batch convert many documents to PDF easily. Basically, all you have to do is drag and drop documents you wanted to convert into gDoc interface and have it converted in short amount of time.
The weakness of gDoc lies on the process of converting PDF files into MS Office files. There are not so many features supporting this action. It's not capable of converting encrypted or password protected PDF files. This is what differ the premium software brand from freeware. Software under the brand of AnyBizSoft is the perfect example.
AnyBizSoft PDF converter can convert any PDF files, whether it's encrypted or not into most MS Office files such as word and excel, and even PowerPoint! In addition, it also converts PDF files into EPUB for e-book experience, or HTML for web viewing.
The ability to edit a file once it has been converted from PDF into other formats is also limitless with AnyBizSoft PDF Converter even if the file is password protected. The software would synchronize itself into the new format, and enables you to insert password and unlock the file. These extra features will surely worth the extra dollar spent to purchase the product.
