SwifDoo PDF Try-out and Quick Review

Creating PDFs

The gist of it, I have pretty straightforward needs as far as PDFs are concerned. Very simply, I do little more than create or combine PDFs.

In these areas, SwifDoo PDF is a breeze to use. For common files such as JPGS, MS word documents, etc, I merely have to right-click on the file after installing the software, choose SwifDoo’s To PDF function, and the interface launches. Thereafter, it’s a matter of saving the file after edits.

If right-clicking doesn’t bring up the option, then one needs to first launch the software. Here’s also where things get a shade confusing.

Upon launching, two options would be available on the toolbar presented. These being:

  • PDF to Word
  • PDF to Image

On clicking PDF to Word, a separate window launches. There will be an extensive vertical menu in this, several options of which provide conversion from MS Office documents to PDF format. (From Word to PDF is under Office to PDF. After highlighting the option, add your word document)

The same goes for PDF to Image. Of note, SwifDoo supports bitmaps, jpgs, pngs, and tiff file formats.

It’s all very quick and easy; that is, once you know where to find the options. Down the road, the developer might perhaps consider renaming the above-mentioned functions.

Options to convert from other formats to PDF are found after clicking “PDF to Word” or “PDF to Image”.

Editing and Annotation

SwifDoo promises the ability to edit PDFs like word documents, and this is indeed so. As long as the text of your PDF is not password protected.

One just after to open the PDF, then head over to the Edit section on the topmost horizontal menu bar. Thereafter, it’s a matter of clicking on the paragraph to change.

Annotation functions, with their own section on the top menu, are likewise straightforward. Essentially, the interface becomes a drawing board. You have tools to edit text. You also have another set of tools for drawing/graphic capabilities.

It’s simple to use; to an extent, fun too. The capabilities available should also, in my opinion, address the annotation needs of most users.

Document Conversions

SwifDoo PDF comes with the ability to convert PDFs to office documents or image formats. On its website, “high-quality conversion” is also assured.

After several tries, what I can say is this. Conversion to word format is almost always fast. Conversion to Excel and other formats takes a while longer but is still speedy.

Accuracy is impressive as well. In fact, the only PDF documents SwifDoo weren’t able to correctly convert were my PDF music scores. As in, those that I generated directly from Finale PrintMusic.

For these, SwifDoo could still capture my images. What it couldn’t do, on the other hand, was understand my music notation and capture them as an image.

To be clear, this is in no way a flaw to me. Anyway, MS word has no ability to present music notation.

As far as office documents conversion is concerned, I’d rank SwifDoo a 5 out of 5.
