It is the right solution to extract from your files the content in pure text format for successive use.
The original files are always leaved untouched and unmodified.
It can accept a single or multiple files in a single drag and drop operation.

It can accept and convert to plain text:
• PDF documents from any platform (.pdf files)
• Web pages (.html and .htm files)
• Rich text Format documents ( .rtf files)
• Rich Text Format with embedded graphics documents ( .rtfd files)

To Text Converter works creating new text files inside a selected folder or in a custom destination asked after dropping the files, as specified in the preferences.
The newly created files will contain, in text format, the perfectly readable textual content of the original files
The original files will be always left untouched to never damage your work.
