Working with PDF to iWork Expert
With the extremely simple and clear interface, you can quickly convert your PDF files into iWork document. Please follow 3 steps to get it done.
1. Add Files:
Click “Add files” button to import the PDF files you want to convert, or click File-‐>Add Files on the menu to get started. You can import unlimited PDF files at one time. Click “Delete” to remove one imported PDF file, click “Clear” to remove all PDF files.
Click on the icon in the line of the selected PDF file, you can customize the page ranges or select the output format (Pages/Keynote/Text/Image) for the output file. The default options are All pages and iWork Pages(.pages) format.
1.Set page range
Choose one format and select Apply to all option, the format of current file setting will apply to all the files in the panel, you can select a particular page range to save your time. Click on the blank, type in the page numbers you want to convert, for example:1, 5-9, 12.
2.Set output format while convert to iWork Pages
There are two output options available.
(1) Make image selectable, format all text content with text boxes
Text contents, images and columns will be converted in text boxes, so you can easily move the text boxes to anywhere you want. Text boxes can retain the original formatting better then following options. And image will be easily selected, since they are flowing above the pages.
This is recommended if your PDF file has complex layouts, or you just want to modify some certain words, images instead of the whole document.
(2) Back ground image unseletable, format text content without text boxes
Text will not be placed in text boxes, so you can select all text of the whole document, and change the formatting directly, this is suitable when you want to edit a large scale of contents. Image will be treated as background, so you can't select them directly, especially in the latest version Pages version 5.2.2. If you open the output file in Pages version 4 or former version, you can open the 'Format' panel, select ' background image selectable', then you can select the image.
After setting the output settings, click Convert button to convert PDF to Pages/Keynote/Image/Text. The conversion will be finished in seconds. Then you can click on the link in the document list to open the converted Pages file or click on the File-‐>Open Output Folder to open the converted output folder.
