Convert PDF to Rich Text

Nitro Pro’s export functionality allows you to convert PDF files into Rich Text Format documents (.RTF files) enabling you to easily and reliably re-purpose your content in WordPerfect, Open Office or another word processing application. You can export a range of pages, whole files, or whole collections of files in a single task.

NOTE: OCR (optical character recognition) will be automatically used on image-based (or scanned) PDF files to recognize and convert the text contained in the document.

How to convert PDF to Rich Text:

1. On the Home tab, in the Convert group, click To Other then To Rich Text


2. In the Convert PDF to Rich Text window, do any of the following:

  • Under Files for Conversion, click Add Files, and then browse to select additional PDF files to include.
  • Highlight a PDF file from the list and then use the Move Up or Move Down options to reorder the documents, or click Remove to remove a document from the list.
  • Click the checkbox next to Include all open PDF documents to quickly export the open PDFs to RTF.
  • To convert specific pages within a document, highlight the document then click Choose Pages. In the Pages box, enter the desired page or range of pages (separated by a dash). For example, to convert pages 3, 4, and 5 of an 8-page document, enter 3-5.
  • Under Conversion Settings, choose a layout mode from the Layout list, or click Options… to set additional options. Refer to PDF to Word/RTF Export Settings for more information on layout modes and other available options.
  • Under Output, select from available Folder options to specify where the exported file is stored.
  • Click the Open files after conversion checkbox to automatically open the exported documents in the default program.
