Converting files to formatted text
When you convert files to text using other converters you may be surprised at the results because converters have different ideas on what should be displayed. For example, if you convert pdf to text, do you just dump out the raw text, or do want formatting of the results such as indents and bullet points?
At www.docx2doc.com we believe you should have as much formatting as possible that the file format allows. So if you convert docx files to text you will see stars (*) as bullet points and columns formatted with vertical lines. It would be much easier to just give the raw text, but we think it is more useful to have the formatting preserved.
The same is true for Microsoft Pocket Word psw to txt, or pdf to txt. Maintaining the formatting allows you to easily read and edit the resulting file. Additionally, we include carriage returns and linefeeds as per most applications use for rendering the result file. This gives you nice linebreaks instead of running all the lines together when displayed under common apps such as Word or Notepad.
