Have you ever been placed in a position where someone presents you with a PDF that has information in it that you would like to be able to extrapolate or extract into a form that was more edit friendly? There are lots of PDF viewing applications, but there’s not a lot of applications that allow you to extract the information that you’re looking at into an editable form.
Most of the time, if you’re presented with a PDF with marketing or statistical information, they don’t want you to be able to extract that information, they’re giving it to you as a presentation. But having the ability to extract information from like columns of information and then be able to convert that directly to say a spreadsheet or Microsoft Excel type application, can be very beneficial.
This post is just a quick look into an application called Able2Extract Professional.
