Best tool to strip text out of PDF for LRF conversion?

I am looking mainly for something to pull the text out of my knitting patterns, which are often in pdf form, so I can then convert the text to LRF format. It would be nice if it did it pretty cleanly :-)

The pictures aren't important to me, just the text, for the patterns.

Any ideas on this will be helpful. I love this forum/site!

Hi

You could try using ABC Amber Sony converter, I hear it's pretty good and it's freeware

That only converts from LRF and does a poor job of it too.

If these PDF are DRM free, you could copy/past the text into Book designer to make an LRF eBook of the bits you want.

Hi

Best up to now I have found, and if PDF is not DRMed, is to pass the PDF by a OCR program (Omnipage Pro 16 or Finereader Pro 9), and then save it in a format you can edit afterwards before converting to the final lrf file.

It takes time and work, but gives you more control of the output and lets you create a template, that will permit build a new version of your eBook in the future, in any reflowing text format.

Best regards,
