Able2Extract Professional is a all-in-one converter for your native PDF files and scanned PDFs. This program is easy to use and full of functionality. Packed with 64 awesome features and 8 PDF conversion formats, this will be the only PDF converter you will ever need! The professional version of the program also comes with a additional feature. The ability to handle scanned (image) PDFs.

Review (Updated):

At initial startup, the program displays a dialogue box that walks you through each of the 3 steps in the conversion process and gives a description of how and what to do. I love how easy it is to use the program with easy to follow instruction until the very end. It guides you every step of the way and makes it easy for a novice user to take command and use every function of the program to his/her liking.

The newly design interface from version 7 is still in version 8, has greatly improves usablity of the program. With graphical buttons and a brank new look, the features are easy to spot. The steps to using the program only consists of 3 steps:

  1. Open your file
  2. Select data you want to convert
  3. Convert to your desires output format

Simple and easy! With this program you get great results due to their OCR technology powered by Accumax CT.

Able2Extract Professional 8 has made incremental improvements in its PDF conversion output as a result of the updated OCR technology and the improved PDF rendering. The result is PDF conversions to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that are more accurate and stay truer to the actual PDF document once it is converted back into its native form.

Key Features (via developer):

  • PDF to Excel, Word, PowerPoint, & Publisher
  • Batch Conversion
  • Proprietary PDF Viewing
  • PDF to AutoCad - Recover CAD drawings
  • PDF to Images - Make PDF Images Useable
  • PDF to Open Source Formats - Conversion to Open Source Formats
  • and a lot more... (read more)

Seen all of Version 7 before? What's new? The newest update of Able2Extract is now cross platform! This is great news to Linux users and Mac users.

With improved PDF viewing you will be able to open more files and show the PDF in a higher fidelity. This will also lead to higher output quality. The conversion process has also been improved. With the new OCR technology, rendering quality and accuracy will be much higher. You conversions from Word, Exel, and PowerPoint will stay even closer related to the original.

Product Specs:

All in All:

Version 8 is just as great as version 7. With improved conversion and PDF quality, how much better can it get. Version 8 has brought Able2Extract to the top of my list. Fast compete conversions at highest quality is what every PDF converter should have, but Able2Extracat 8 outshines them all. As one of my favorite programs this awesome editor and converter deserves a spot on the PCb Favorites.



Sorry everybody, there was some miscommunication on my part. We are giving away the standard version of Able2Extract 8. Not the Pro version. Sorry for the confusion.
