PDF to DOC converter
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format developed by Adobe in the early 1990s and used widely for distributing documents across networks and intranets. PDFs are designed to maintain the formatting of a document, and can contain text, images, hyperlinks, and 3D objects. PDF files are typically much smaller in size than their native counterparts and can be accessed on a range of devices, including mobile and tablet.
PDFs can be protected with passwords or digital signatures to prevent editing. They can also be locked from printing or copying. Furthermore, they offer text searching support, allowing users to easily locate material within a file. PDFs are often used for sharing official documents between organizations due to their security feature-set.
DOC is a file extension for documents created by Microsoft Word. It is an application in Microsoft Office suite, and one of the most popular word processing programs for Windows and macOS users. Word DOC files may include text, images, objects, styles, and other formatting. Such files are compatible with versions of Word from 1997 onward, and can be opened in many other word processing programs.
When you create a document in Word, it's saved as a DOC file by default. These files contain different kinds of data stored in a binary format, making them much smaller in size than plain text files. If you wish to share a DOC file with someone who doesn't have Microsoft Office installed, you can save it as a PDF (Portable Document Format).
