PDF2Office Personal 4.0
Having shipped the Professional version in February, Recosoft is now launching the Personal edition of PDF2Office 4.0. The plug-in reconstructs the elements of PDF documents within Microsoft Word, maintaining paragraphs, headers and footers, while generating tables and regrouping graphic elements. It additionally builds columns and sections, and incorporates endnotes and footnotes.
Personal 4.0 introduces support for Word 2008, alongside the Word X/2004 support previous versions have had. The software also uses the PDF Reconstruction 4.1 engine, which improves the handling of paragraphs, tables, columns and graphics. The Retain Layout conversion has been altered to produce fewer text boxes and frames, and the Font Matching and Substitution feature lets users pick a replacement font for those that can't be replaced automatically. PDF2Office Personal costs $60 new, or $30 as an upgrade from previous two editions.
