    pdf to txt

    Hi,

    I need a program that converts from PDF to txt?
    I did a search on google but the only results I got there weren't to good. They wanted you to email them the PDF file. But I need a program.

    Does anyone know such a program? It would save me frome typeing 130 pages.

    thanks

    -Maes

    Lightbulb you could..

    if you want just the text and not the pics and stuff just copy and paste! if you by adobe acrobat and not just the reader you can do this, as well as make your own pdf from txt.

    Using Acrobat Reader, open the pdf then:
    File->Export Document To Text

    I'd say that's pretty straight forward.

    I went looking for that, didn't find it. But I did find a "text select tool" button . Strange. I've never noticed that before. It allowed me to coppy the text to the clipboard.

    Thanks taylorguitarman for giving me this very simple idea.
    Also thx the the rest of you guys
