Solid Converter PDF v3.0 Enhances PDF Conversion and Creation Capabilities

New features, including advanced table handling and the ability to create PDFs in any program, make PDF conversion product more compatible with Microsoft Office than ever

Redmond, Washington, November 10, 2005. Solid Documents LLC, makers of Solid Documents™ products, today announced the release of Solid Converter® PDF version 3. The new version features advanced PDF conversion and creation capabilities that enhance its compatibility with Microsoft® Office programs, making it easy to convert documents to and from the universally accessible Portable Document Format (PDF).

"Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to work with PDFs;" said Michael Cartwright, CEO of Solid Documents, LLC. "With Solid Converter PDF users can easily import PDF content into Microsoft® Word and Excel®, make edits and changes, and save their files in the PDF format again after editing. There’s no need to learn or own other software to take advantage of the power of PDF."

The new version of the product features:

  • Enhanced conversion output. Now more than ever, Solid Converter PDF v3.0 provides extremely high-quality conversions that are easy to edit in Word or Excel. Technological improvements in the program have improved the quality of extracted graphics, character formatting, font handling and font matching. The integrity of the original file is maintained, eliminating the need for reformatting and rework.
  • Advanced table handling. Users can now extract tables from PDF files directly into Excel spreadsheets to access and re-use data. Users can also open PDF files with tables into Microsoft Word, where each table is handled as a separate object that can be easily changed using Word’s table manipulation features.
  • Create PDF from practically ANY program. In the new Professional version of Solid Converter PDF users can create PDFs from almost any Windows® program.* (As in previous versions, users of the Standard version can create PDFs directly from Microsoft Word.) Newly created PDF files can be compressed for faster downloading on the Web and protected by adding passwords to open or edit documents.

A common use scenario might be the following: A user extracts a PDF table to an Excel spreadsheet, makes updates to the data, and adds new formulas. Because of the compatibility of Microsoft products, the new converted table can then be imported and re-used in other Office programs such as Word or PowerPoint®. The new document is then saved as a compressed PDF and displayed on the company’s Web site.

Solid Converter PDF has been a successful and trusted product for years, backed by first-class customer service. As one of our many appreciative customers recently told us, “Good buys are hard to find; this is one of them.”
