Customer feedback:
"I read about this product at an online Mac news site. After downloading and trying the demo, I was amazed at the accuracy and speed of conversion. It took me just a moment to go back to your site and buy a license. The 25% early special was icing on the cake. It will no doubt be an application I use often and your software will become an important part of my workflow in graphic design. Great work!"

"Wow! I took a PowerPoint file made on a Windows PC converted it to PowerPoint on the Mac then converted it to a PDF for my iPad and then took that PDF and converted it to a Word file for my Mac. Flawless conversion!!! This really helps with getting files on your iPad that you can edit. Bravo!"

Solid PDF to Word for Mac vs. Apple Automator App (Part 2)

Should PDF converters respect PDF security? Solid Documents says yes. Adobe PDF Reference states that anyone is free to use the PDF standard as long as they abide by PDF security settings. Solid PDF to Word for Mac respects all PDF security settings as do all Solid Documents products.

We tried two simple tests with the Apple Automator application (PDFtoRTF). First we tried to push a user password protected file through our Automator PDF app. The tool looked like it created a RTF file from the PDF but then we could not open the file with EditText or Pages (error message: The document x could not be opened.)

Solid PDF to Word for Mac vs. Apple Automator App

Does Apple OS X provide a method for converting PDF files into other formats? Sort of. You can write an automator application to convert PDF files into RTF documents but you can only extract the text. No formatting is preserved, no tables and no images. If you just need text then the automator application can deliver text. Some of the time.

In our experience the automator application can only handle very simple PDF files. It closes with unexpected errors when offered PDF files with non-standard encoding (very common issue with PDF files), it creates 0 byte files for other PDFs that it cannot convert and generally didn╩╝t perform robustly to provide useful results.
