Another suggestion sitting in Skribit widget for some time – “Could I submit my freeware? Zilla PDF to TXT Converter”.
Well, you did. PDF converters are dime a dozen. All the more reason to pay attention to those who ask nicely. So what this one has to offer?
What it does
Zilla PDF to TXT Converter is free version of PDFZilla shareware. Free app is limited to plain text as output format.
App takes PDF files as input and converts them to text files in batch. It can convert all of document or specific range of pages.
I had tried Google study of hard drives as input and it was converted near-instantly. Result is decent except Zilla seemed too happy to swallow breaks between paragraphs.
Actually there is no also. I usually like focused apps but this one is too focused. Saving plain text from unprotected PDF is something any PDF viewer like Foxit Reader will do.
App does exactly what it says. Question is do you really need to convert multiply PDF documents in bulk?
Disclosure. Developers offer free licenses for review of full version which has nothing to do with this post. And I think conditions on that offer are nuts by the way.
