Other PDF manipulation options
Thanks for the find. I started a thread concerning a similar issue with PDFs. This is what I found related to converting from a PDF.
Programs that allow you to manipulate and extract info from PDF:
File Juicer ($17,http://echoone.com/filejuicer/)
PDFpen and PDFpenPro ($50-100, http://www.smileonmymac.com/index.html)
Program that allows you to join multiple pdfs into single file with Table of Contents:
PDF Lab (free, http://www.iconus.ch/fabien/products/pleng/pleng.html)
w/r to just getting the PDF into a PRS-505 calibre, for the most part, worked as well as any of these programs
Hope this helps.

Nice conversion method
When converting a PDF with pictures for an ebook device, I found a good method with minimal fuss. It is a bit time consuming and you need a 3rd party product.
Use ABBY Finereader to convert to LIT format, then convert the LIT to the ebook format of your choice. Pictures will be preserved. Abby Finereader takes a while to convert for its own format, but it will also handle scanned books. I have not tried 2 column PDFs, but an average PDF with pictures is OK.
I then use BookDesigner to convert from LIT to LRF and the result is quite good.

I use the Calibre ebook management system. It has a reasonably good converter, and converts pdf to epub, among many others. The only problem I have is that I can't seem to enlarge the fonts, even after manually adjusting the conversion settings; and books converted in this manner do not respond to the font scaling commands on my e-reader (kobo).

i find that when i convert to PDF using Calibre when i put it onto my sony reader PRS-300, not all the pages upload, like its blank for half of teh book, but all the pages are there when you open it on my computer??? does anyone know how to fix this??? because most of my ebooks are pdf format??
also does anyone know a free pdf to word.doc creator that converts the whole book???
I really like odf but its so annoying when the whole book doesnt show??
or i dont know if its my ereader because all other formats seem to work??
