  • PDFExtractor is very easy to use. Simply drag your PDF file (or files, or folders) to 'Extract' icon. PDFExtractor will then start working on your PDFs. An activity monitor will show you that PDFExtractor is working (small files won't dislay this dialog because they'll be processed before you know it). The resulting files will be placed in separate folders in the directory chosen in the application preference panel (by default the same folders as the original files) with the same name as the original files.

  • When in demonstration mode, PDFExtractor will process only the first page of your documents. Demonstration mode is intended to give you an idea of how PDFExtractor will work before you purchase it. We've personally tested many files and have never encountered a PDF that PDFExtractor can't handle. If you're unsure, send us a copy of your PDF file and we can verify if PDFExtractor can handle it beforehand. Please navigate to the Purchase page to purchase an activation code.
