Convert PDF files to Word (.doc)

PdfGrabber enables the conversion of PDF documents into numerous other file formats. Using the “Word” output option, you can create Microsoft Word / Doc compatible documents. These can of course also be opened and edited with Apple Pages or other office applications.

To convert a PDF to Word, simply select the desired PDF file(s) for export in PdfGrabber.

Then select the desired export profile in the “Profile” area. In most cases, our standard profile “Excellent editability” already produces the best results. If necessary, however, you can make further fine adjustments for the conversion on the “Format options” tab.
