Cold sweat when I need to convert Adobe PDF into another e-book format. I've tried many solutions, none of which worked too well, especially with formatted PDF content. I might as well try TinyStocks's PDF2Doc (http://www.tinystocks.com/pdf2doc.html), an Adobe Acrobat plugin which allows to extract text from a page or several pages and to convert it to the Palm doc format.

You need the full Adobe Acrobat suite though in order to use this tool!

Adobe Acrobat costs serious money and I have no use for it anyway. I use either Repligo or a free program, PDA Converter (http://www.jakewalk.de/palm/pdaconverter_e.html), which works pretty much perfectly when the pdf document is just text. Convert the resulting html files to Plucker or iSilo. :smiley2:

The big problem is DRM-protected Adobe ebooks. If they're just text, then Adobe Reader for Palm works (but is still poor), but if the book has tables or diagrams it really mangles them. :angry:
