This has happened twice in no time, I've received a file converted from .pdf to .doc with Solid Converter PDF. So far so good, but when I open it in TagEditor, it somehow splits not only sentences, but even one word into several segments. Any solution to this one?

Just a suggestion Mar 30, 2009

Since it's quite comfortable and reliable (depends on the size and complexity of the pdf file), I'm using Solid Converter PDF (v5) quite often, and it's best to deselect "Use custom character spacing to retain original layout" option, otherwise there will be numerous spaces and/or line breaks all over the file, producing exactly the type of file you described in your post - a rather useless and a very large one. (And TE starts new segment after a double space ...)

If it's possible, the client should (re)deliver a workable file, and if they can't provide it, the source files are always the best option (there are few recent posts stating this).

Regards
Vesna

ps. If (although I doubt) I can help with conversion, you can send me an e-mail through my profile.

Remove paragraphs Mar 30, 2009

Hi Jorgen,
you should remove any excessive paragraph marks and soft breaks. The file should segment nicely then.
