Able2Extract Pro 12 - A Capable PDF Tool

Well, as we have already found out, the Able2Extract Pro is one of the excellent PDF manipulation tools that promises to simplify all your tasks. It is indeed one of the best options to convert, create or edit PDF files.

We had covered an earlier version of the software, Able2Extract Pro 10 a couple of years ago. The new version packs in a few additional features that were not available in the older version.

A few improvements from the previous versions include the following -
  • The new version adds the ability to edit an entire paragraph. This was a feature that was not available in the earlier version.
  • The new PDF Forms feature allows users to fill in, create, and edit interactive PDF forms.
  • It has also introduced the faster conversion rate for the batch files. Adding multiple files to the conversion queue is now much simplified. You just need to choose the folder and Able2Extract will add up all the supported files.
  • The new version offers an excellent conversion performance for converting your PDF files to Excel. You can either go with the automatic or custom conversion option.

The Important features

The software banks on three major features that make it an excellent choice. We will discuss these three main features for understanding the functionality in a nutshell.

Conversion of PDF

The tool can convert your PDF files into several file formats. Some of these file formats include Word. Excel, PowerPoint, AutoCAD, and JPEG. What makes it an excellent option is the ability and speed of performance in terms of the conversion of files from PDF to other formats.
The latest version has added an excellent support for the conversion of Excel into PDF. You can use the customised conversion settings to arrive at the best speed and functionality.

Editing Your PDF

Looking to change some portion of your PDF files? The editing option comes in handy.
Launch your Able2Extract program and click on Open. Browse to the location of the file that you want to.

Click on Edit. You will be presented with the editing options to work with. Apply the changes you want to make and then save the file.
You have access to almost anything you may want to do with the file. The editing option lets you delete, move, resize, and insert PDF pages. Changing the content should be one of the easiest options with the tool. We just clicked on the Text after selecting it and replaced it with the new text! As simple as that - as if we were able to edit a Word file. The software can even recognise paragraphs as well.
It also offers you the option of adding vector shapes and mages to the file.
No matter, which type of content you may try to add or edit, each of these components has its own additional properties settings.

Securing Your PDF

The PDF files you share across your organisation can contain sensitive information. An able software tool should ideally be able to secure the contents of the file so that they may not be accessed by any unauthorized person.

Go to View tab and choose the PDF Creation Options. In the next screen, choose the tab for Security.

Here, you can set a password for the individual PDF files. You can apply the password protection for the select activities that include
