  1. Thanks @usman @adam @jk for your valuable comment

    of course, dopdf is very simple and effective tool, it can used by a beginner too. But, other tools are commercially available in internet 🙂

  2. These programs are helpful, but I usually have the most problems in converting a pdf into word or some other format. I started using a software I found called Able2Doc to convert pdf’s into word and so far it works great. It has a free trial so anyone can test it out.
