Perfect Layout Retention

The new area selection tools enable you to perfectly retain the layouts of documents when converting PDF files, including complex formatted documents with graphics and tables. Simply select the text, picture or table areas on the page, and you can be certain that all this formatting will be preserved in the output document (for example, in Microsoft Word).

Saving to Searchable PDF

With this new saving format, it is now possible to transform any PDF file generated by a scanner or MFP into a searchable PDF document with a click of a button.


Keeping Hyperlinks

When converting PDF files, ABBYY PDF Transformer 2.0 preserves any links and hyperlinks inside PDF documents. For example, if the Table of Contents page of a PDF file is in the form of links to document pages, these internal links will be reconstructed in the output Microsoft Word document.


Keeping Document Properties

ABBYY PDF Transformer 2.0 now retains additional document properties, such as Title, Author, Subject, and Keywords, when converting PDF files to Searchable PDF, DOC/RTF, XLS, and HTML formats. These properties can be used by the operating system and other software for indexing and searching saved files.
