PDF2Word is an application which allows you to convert PDF files into Microsoft Word documents. It can export both text and layouts, so the converted file will look similar to the original one.
The program comes with a neat and user-friendly interface. A nice thing is that it supports PDF files without any other third-party PDF reader or maker installed on your hard disk. To start using the tool, you need to select the PDF you want to convert. You can add the file by using the Open function or simply by a drag-and-drop action. Once the PDF has been added, a new window pops up displaying some functions regarding the conversion. It gives you the opportunity to choose among various reconstruction modes; thus you have an ability to convert the page contents as such, to preserve only the text with or without text boxes, or to combine text blocks automatically.

There are some other editing options which allow you to set a page range, as well as to delete all graphics and pictures. Once these features are modified, the application starts the conversion process. However, you should know that the unregistered version can only process one file and five pages at once.

In conclusion, this is an easy-to-use program that helps you convert a PDF file into DOC, DOCX, or RTF format. It works smoothly and it can be used by anyone. However, I would have preferred a preview function to display the file before conversion.
