The great thing about PDF files is they make documents look the same no matter what computer you view them on. Too bad PDFs have always reminded me of toys you can’t play with because taking them out of the original packaging would hurt their value as collectibles. What good is an electronic document you can’t change?
From the “Pretty much what it sounds like” department comes Free PDF to Word Converter. Finally, you can transmogrify PDF files into a format you can use. Before you do a back flip for joy, a caveat: the converter works best on text-heavy documents without a lot of formatting. Things like columns and pictures will really give this thing indigestion, and the stuff it regurgitates won’t be very pretty, or useful. But if you’d just like to modify some text without shelling out big bucks for Acrobat, this one’s for you. -BILL FERRIS
