Edit those PDF Files!

via Richard Byrne:

Have you ever downloaded a PDF file to use as a handout,  but you wanted to make some tweaks?  Before, unless you could fork out $450 for Adobe's Acrobat Pro, you were stuck with having to retype everything.  Now there's PDF to Word, which can, well, turn PDF files into editable Word documents. And it's free.

I tested it with a graphics and format heavy document I put together on film editing, and I must say, I was impressed.

Here's a screen shot of the original file

And here's the converted file:

Not bad at all.

And, of course, I don't need to remind you to still give credit where credit is due, if you do edit someone else's file!
