As far as I know I could also use BookDesigner for this task.
The conversion is never perfect and there are always issues with formatting.
How do you extract your PDFs? What is the best current tool/process? Will I archive better results if I update Acrobat to the latest version?
When I only need to extract some test content from a PDF file. I use the freeware AnyBizSoft PDF to Text. It extracts text from PDF files.
Since you want to retain the format, I think converting PDF to Word or HTML, and then to .prc could be a choice. Anyway, I think there will be problems with formatting once a file is converted for 2 or more times with different tools.
