Convert pdf to text

Tue Nov 28, 2017 3:52 pm

I have tried pdf-xchange Editor to convert pdf to text and i liked the end result.
I opened the document, and using the Select Text Tool, copied all text and then pasted in a text editor and saved: it worked 100% ok!

My question is (sorry if it is already done):

- Can I automate this?
or with another words:
- It is possible to invoke pdf-xchange by another program (or at command line) passing the pdf filename and the text filename?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Antonio Barbosa,

There is a way of doing this. Choose File/Save As and choose Plain Text in the Format field.

Also, if you want to do Batch Operations with multiple documents, be sure to check the PDF Tools.

Cheers,
Alex
