Converter keeps layouts, graphics intact
Recosoft has launched a new PDF converter for Apple's iWork suite, PDF2Office for iWork v1.0. The software attempts to restore layouts in its conversion process, recreating paragraphs and tables. It can also regroup independent graphic elements. Users have access to preset conversion options and font mappings, but can also make fine adjustments as necessary.
PDFs are converted directly for Pages '08 or '09, or resourced into Keynote. The new software is Snow Leopard-ready, and requires either iWork '08 or '09. A single-user license is $60, whereas a family five-pack is $80 and an office five-pack is $100.
