Recosoft Corporation has announced PDF2Office Professional 4.0 for Mac OS X, which it will ship in February next year.

PDF2Office Professional 4.0 is a major upgrade to the PDF-to-Office format conversion tool for the Mac, which supports Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

The software converts PDF documents to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, RTF and other formats recreating the original style and layout of the document: forming paragraphs; applying styles; regrouping independent graphic elements; extracting images; creating tables; and processing headers/footers, endnotes/footnotes and columns/sections.

The software also includes the latest PDF Reconstruction 4.1 engine, which offers improved performance and conversion results. Enhancements have been made to the layout reconstruction process augmenting paragraph formation, table recognition, columns construction and graphics processing.

Additional PDF editing software and tools aren't required. A new Convert to web page format conversion has been introduced.

The software costs $129 (£63.49), while $59 (£29) will buy an upgrade from a previous iteration.
