Also adds full Snow Leopard compliance
Recosoft has released PDF2Office Personal 5.0 for the Mac platform. The program rebuilds the layout of PDF documents for Microsoft Word. It automatically reforms paragraphs, preserves styles and regroups independent graphic elements. It also creates tables, and processes headers and footers, endnotes and footnotes, and columns and sections. The software operates as a plug-in.
The update adds over 60 features; the headliner is said to be the ability to covert PDFs into a native Word 2007/2008 format. The upgrade also provides full compatibility with Snow Leopard, a new typeface library, and a PDF inspector for viewing fonts, metadata and restrictions within a file. PDF2Office Personal 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher, and costs $60.
