How do I configure the output format of the file when converting PDFs into MS Word documents?


The Word conversion output offers 4 different output formats when converting a PDF to Word. The user can select any of the 4 options:

  1. Default: Using this setting on the Windows platform will result in the software automatically detecting which version of Word is installed on the machine and then saving the Word output into the applicable format – .docx or .doc.
  2. RTF: Choosing this setting means that all conversion that are made from PDF to Word will be saved in the rich text format (.rtf) extension.
  3. Word 2007: Using this setting means that all documents converted into Word will be saved as .docx, regardless of which version of Word is installed.
  4. OpenOffice Writer: Selecting this option allows users to save all their PDF to Word conversions in the OpenOffice Writer format (.odt) by default.
