Just a note to thank you for PDF Multitool which we have been using on and off for years. It allows us to make images of historical data available for digitizing. We are building one of the world’s longest and most stable weather records in Adelaide, South Australia. The digitized data is stored in global databanks and researchers use it to “recreate” models of historical weather back to the 1840s. Outputs from these models are useful in climate change analysis. We are a self-organizing group of volunteers and have no funds to do our work so free Multitool is a godsend. thanks!

Here are some examples of how you can use PDF Multitool to extract and process PDF data:
PDF Multitool is best at detecting tables. This demo explains how you can detect tables in PDF automatically. That is an easy way to extract tables from PDF into TXT, CSV, XLS, or XML formats.
Some documents have border-less tables with custom spacing, which requires special effort to detect tables. Use AI Mode to detect this kind of table.
While extracting data from PDF in CSV format, AI-powered Content Group AI mode is very useful.
XML is one of the most recognized data structures to store data into. With PDF Multitool we can export PDF data to XML format.
This demo shows how to convert PDF to XML using PDF Multitool. The XML data can be used in non-PDF software afterward.
PDF Multitool has a feature to find text inside PDF. It also sees through scanned PDF and finds the text from there as well. Regular Expression support is also provided.
You can read text from images using improved Optical Character Recognition. You can use Selection Tool to select the area you want to read. Otherwise, you can read the whole PDF page.
PDF Multitool also provides a feature to convert Scanned PDF to Text Searchable or Un-Scanned PDF.
PDF is made of many layers such as text, images, vectors, etc. For advanced inspection of PDF, we can use this feature to know which part of PDF is made of what.

Merging PDF is a very common and useful feature provided by PDF Multitool.

PDF Multitool is one of the best products available in the market. As mentioned earlier, this utility tool can execute different functions. Let’s take a look at it in more detail.
Our PDF Data Extraction Tool is free to use for personal use, but that does not mean you are getting a poor service. Instead, you still get an accurate data extraction service from our tool. Moreover, you can download the tool and install it on your computing device.
The only exception is the tool is subject to fair use, whereby you cannot use it to extract the same volume of data, which commercial users will typically extract. In that regard, you get to test all its features, without paying for it.
Digital automation tools cannot process information directly from PDF forms. Instead, you must extract the information, and then feed it to the automation tools, in a systematic manner.
Our free PDF to CSV tool allows you to do that, without the extra burden of paying for the service. For small businesses, that means an ability to test our tool, without spending money.
Furthermore, it makes it easy to justify the need to invest in our commercial PDF to CSV Tool, once you can quantify its benefits in terms of saved FTEs.
You are possibly looking for a free tool to convert PDF to XML, because ready yet to invest in one. The good news is we have such a tool for you, but you will only be able to use it for non-commercial use.
The limitation allows you to convert a few personal files in a secure manner, while still limiting it to personal use only. That is crucial when handling electronically protected health information, (ePHI).
Sometimes you need a fast and secure way to convert your PDF files to XLS or XLSX file format, without paying a dime. This can be because you are doing a test job for a client, and you are just starting your business. You could also be doing it as part of your project in school.
We understand there is that need, which is why we make this tool not only free to use but also free for download.
You often get PDF files with great images, which you may want to extract and share online. Moreover, you may also want to retain ownership of those images, or even prevent third parties from accessing them before you publish them.
Using some free PDF to TIFF Images tools can prevent you from doing that because they often retain ownership of your data. Some may not do it, but they may add a watermark to your images.
Our tool does none of that, which is why we recommend it for personal use, and you can upgrade anytime for commercial use.
