Adobe Licenses Solid Documents Technology for Acrobat X

Adobe Acrobat X takes advantage of Solid Documents' PDF to Word and Excel conversion capabilities

Solid Documents, a developer of document reconstruction and archiving software, announced that Adobe Systems Incorporated (Adobe) has licensed the Solid Framework SDK for Adobe Acrobat X. Adobe Acrobat X takes advantage of Solid Documents' PDF to Word and Excel conversion capabilities, allowing Acrobat X users to easily reuse and repurpose PDF content.

"After reviewing the available options, we chose to use Solid Framework technology for the conversion of PDF files to Microsoft® Word and Excel in Adobe Acrobat X. The document reconstruction quality is very good and the Solid Documents team has been a pleasure to work with on this project," said Aman Deep Nagpal, Senior Product Manager, Acrobat Solutions, at Adobe.

"We're excited that Adobe is using Solid Framework as part of Adobe Acrobat X," said Michael Cartwright, founder and CEO of Solid Documents. "Reviews highlighting Acrobat X's conversion features are already in and the results are very positive."

The pre-release version of Acrobat X's PDF to Word and Excel features using Solid Framework's core conversion technology received the following rave reviews:

"The folks at Adobe told me that the export functionality of Acrobat X has been vastly improved. I can vouch for the export to Word being improved. I recently tried to export a text based PDF that had been filed in federal court, with the goal of copying some of the text to use as sticky notes. I wasn't able to do it with Acrobat 9 because of some issue with font compatibility. I opened up Acrobat X and gave it a try, and it converted the 22 page document in less than 10 seconds." -Ernest Svenson, Writer, PDF for Lawyers, "Adobe announces Acrobat; my quick review" 10/18/2010
