Portable Document Format (PDF) files are a wonderful thing. They're the ultimate in cross-platform flexibility, and allow you to use text, images, and more in telling your story. Sometimes, though, too much flexibility can get in the way of getting work done. Suppose you're the proud recipient of a great big PDF file just chock full of images, fancy fonts, and all kinds of good stuff. Now imagine that you want the text—and just the text—from that file. While all that other stuff is good, if you're building a web page, for example, then you're really only interested in the text. Yes, you could go through and copy-and-paste all the textual content from that PDF doc, but that may be the most tedious thing you do all day. You need a tool that will take care of that for you.

Zilla PDF to TXT Converter is a free tool that will extract the text from a PDF page. It's got an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface—just drag your file, or files, onto the application window, and it'll strip out all the extraneous stuff and give you just the text. Now you can use it to build your web page, re-purpose it into a word processing document, or whatever else you need to do with it.

Zilla PDF to TXT Converter is a free Windows application. If you're interested in moving beyond this basic functionality, they've also got a paid version, called PDFZilla.
