When i try to convert a poem book pdf, all the strings are mixing together. I tried with AVS Document Converter, Mobipocket and calibre... They're all same... What should i do?

I feel your pain. PDF is probably the worst format to try to convert to something else.

Sometimes the only thing you can do is, by hook or crook, convert each page of the PDF to a graphic image (say, tiff) and feed that to a good OCR program to convert it back to text.

Not a pretty solution.

When you convert from PDF to anything else, what you HAVE to do is A/B compare (comparing the PDF to the converted output) everything and fix all the errors to which there could be many.
