Recosoft Corporation has introduced software that lets users easily transport content from PDFs into Word 2008 for Mac OS X documents, with all formatting preserved.

The software, PDF2Office Personal 4.0 for Mac OS X, introduces support for Office 2008 along with 120 newly-added features.

PDF2Office Personal re-creates the intended construction 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, all automatically without any manual intervention.

The Retain Layout conversion has been significantly enhanced to offer even more exact layout retention. Text box/text frame generation has been dramatically reduced, and tables are formed.

The developers have improved font substitution and built a more powerful PDF Reconstruction engine to drive the conversion, offering snappier performance than previously found.

Customers who purchased PDF2Office Personal 3.0 licenses on/after 1 January, 2008 are entitled to a free upgrade.

PDF2Office Personal 4.0 costs $59. Upgrade from a previous version costs $29. Customers who purchased PDF2Office Personal 3.0 licenses on/after 1 January, 2008 are entitled to a free upgrade.
