Why converting PDF file to Word I get error "Conversion error"?
Most probably the problem appears because PDF file is protected with User Password and Free PDF Converter can not open the file for converting. Or PDF file is too big or too many pages with very small fonts.
How to unsubscribe from membership?
To cancel your membership please login to your control panel and click "cancel" button near the membership.
Why converting PDF file to Excel I get error "Conversion error"?
In order to convert from PDF to Excel, the PDF must have visible tables (visible table borbers). This is because the conversion process takes the contents in the tables of the PDF and places them into corresponding cells of the Excel spreadsheet. If the PDF does not have tables, it is impossible to convert to Excel. It is always possible to convert the PDF to a DOC file regardless of tables.
My converted PDF file does not look the same as the original Word (or Excel or Powerpoint)?
Prior to converting any file, you should first check the print preview and see how it would print before conversion. If you want to make changes in the size of the text view area or other print setting, it first must be done in the unconverted file. During conversion the program uses the print preview for sizing the pages in the converted document.
