My Thoughts on PDFMate PDF Converter Free
When testing PDFMate PDF Converter Free, the PDFs structure managed to stay intact when converting to a DOCX file, which I was very impressed with.
The software lets you load up multiple PDFs to convert more than one at a time, which is a really handy feature if you have many different PDFs that all require the same output format.
You can also load multiple PDFs for the purpose of merging them into one file, which can also come in handy.
During installation, PDFMate PDF Converter Free tries to install a toolbar that you must deselect to prevent from installing. In addition to this small hassle is an even larger annoyance: After every PDF conversion, you're prompted to buy the full version of PDFMate PDF Converter. There is no way to get rid of this unless you purchase the full program.
Overall, the layout and design of the PDFMate PDF Converter Free software is easy to use and not confusing at all.
