Converting PDF to Word

PDF was supposed to be the ultimate document distribution solution. You take a document (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc), convert it to PDF, and you get a perfect copy of that document that you can send around with 100% confidence that the recipients will see exactly what you see. What a perfect world.... but think about these for a moment:

- What if you need to quickly modify the PDF?
- What if you need to extract data from the PDF?
- What if you just don't like PDF?
- What if the original document is lost?

If all you have is a PDF document, then you are stuck (unless you buy hundreds of dollar worth of software solutions).

We have just released BCL easyConverter Desktop, a tool that can convert PDF to Word. It's easy to use and reasonably priced at $19.95. In fact, it's so easy to use, all you need to do is to select a PDF, select a target filename, and press the convert button. That's it. Now, the best part is that if you document has less than 3 pages, you can use it for free! Simply download the free trial and start converting your PDF to Word.

I have been using BCL's Free PDF conversion service for a long time. It is really an excellent service. Now I feel that the PDF service for weblogs is another excellent one from BCL.

I have also signed up for an account. I have a few queries regarding the same:

1) Can BCL itself auto-detect whether Portrait/Landscape would best suit the webpage? That would be more better right since all pages of the blog might not be best with portrait and/or landscape and vice-versa.

2) Can we have the same code for other weblogs that we publish or should we individually signup for an account for each one?

Please advise.

Thanks for your great service. Unfortunately, today mid-morning EST something happened and I haven't been able to convert anything online; in fact, I can rarely even get on the site. Others have tried from different locations and have reported the same problem. Please help!
