With tons of paperwork you receive on a daily basis, it’s so difficult to do things efficiently and save some time. You must find yourself losing countless hours in everyday document management. That’s why it can be very helpful to make changes to your scanned documents without retyping them. It’s doesn’t just save time, but it is also cost-effective.

To be able to do this, you need a PDF Converter to manipulate your documents with ease. One such tool that has just been released is the PDF Converter Elite 4, and here’s how it can help you with document management work:

Convert scanned PDFs to the format you need

Imagine you have a pile of papers that you need to rewrite. Instead of typing the whole document all over again, you can just scan the document and save it as PDF. Once you have a PDF, you need to open it in PDF Converter Elite and from the Edit menu change the OCR options by clicking on the “Convert using OCR”. And that’s it. You can now play with the tool and turn scanned PDF documents to MS Office formats, as well as to AutoCAD, Open Office, Image, HTML. PCE 4 allows you to convert the whole document or choose only a selected area for conversion.

Customize scanned PDF tables

If you need to change the look of your tables, this is the best way to do it. Just open the PDF you need to edit, apply OCR settings if the document is scanned (as explained in the previous section) and click on the Excel button. Before you click on the Convert button, make sure you customized your PDF.

Once you select the area of the document you want to convert to Excel, click on the Advanced Options button and apply various options. Tweak your table by editing, adding or deleting rows and columns. If you are not sure you edited your PDF properly, tick the Show Preview box at the bottom to make sure everything looks just the way you want it.
