How To Use PDF Suite Pro
Once you have set up this program on your computer, you will realize that it comes with an interface loaded with a plethora of features but that should not in any way scare you. All you need to have at the back of your mind is the task at hand and head over to the right section on the program. In this article, we are after the process to convert PDF files to another format of choice. With that in mind, let us dive right into the process to make this happen.
Step 1: Launch PDF Suite Pro
Being a suite, launching this software for the first time may take a couple of moments as it initializes all the various components it features. However, the process should not take ages and within no time, you will be with the interface below on your desktop.
Step 2: Open a PDF File
There are two ways that you can achieve this step; one is where you use the native file browser method to locate and add a file while the other one simply requires you to drag and drop the PDF file into the interface as shown below. These methods can be accessed via Label 1 and Label 2 respectively.
Once your target PDF file has been opened successfully, it should be displayed out to you as below waiting for your next course of action. On the indicated area, you can see the name of the opened file as a tab since this tool allows you to open multiple PDF files at once.
Step 3: Pick a Conversion Mode
With the output format, you desire in mind, head over to the ribbon and select the “Convert” tab. You should be able to locate that as indicated below; Label 1 shows where to click first in order to have the various conversion modes shown by Label 2.
In this guide, we will use “PDF to Word” as our mode of reference and for that, you just need to click on the related icon. Clicking on your mode of interest should take you to an interface similar to the one below with the mode you chose being selected as indicated.
Step 4: Choose Pages to Convert and Adjust Settings
By default, PDF Suite Pro will be set to convert all the pages but you can adjust to your preference in the area indicated by Label 1. In case you are working on a scanned PDF file, you can enable the use of OCR and even enable the detection and conversion of tables in the area labeled 2.
Step 5: Pick a Saving Directory and Convert
Choosing your preferred output directory is very important so that to facilitate easy retrieval later on. Under Label 1, click on the “Browse” button to select your directory in case you do not want to go with the default one. Once you are done with that, click on the “Convert” icon under Label 2 in order to start the processing.
With the conversion process underway, you will be taken back to the main interface and presented with a progress indicator as shown below.
Depending on the size and number of the PDF files you are working on, you will see a “Done” notification which will mean that the conversion process has completed successfully.
At this point, you should be able to locate the converted file in the directory you choose or if you have a default viewer application installed, the output file will be automatically opened for you by PDF Suite Pro.
