PDF Converter Gives Users Editable InDesign Documents for Use in a Variety of Desktop Publishing and Page Layout Projects

(Press Release)

Recosoft Corporation, the developer of the PDF2Office® family of products, cross platform file format conversion solutions and PDF converters, has started shipping PDF2ID v1.0 for Adobe® InDesign® CS2/CS3.

PDF2ID v1.0 operates as a plug-in for InDesign® CS2/CS3, a PDF converter that yields an editable InDesign® document by recreating the intended construction and layout of the document. PDF2ID forms paragraphs, applies styles, regroups graphic elements, extracts images, creates tables and recovers annotations and other complex elements automatically; converting every PDF page to an equivalent page in the final InDesign® document.

PDF2ID is the only PDF converter available for InDesign® CS2/CS3 offering a direct, transparent and effortless process for PDF document data retrieval and reuse in an InDesign® document. PDF2ID utilizes sophisticated computing algorithms and models in delivering a highly-accurate reconstruction of a PDF document to the InDesign® document format. Furthermore, PDF2ID is based on a client-server architecture delivering optimal conversion performance on modern multi-core systems.

PDF2ID has been engineered from the ground up to provide seamless integration with Adobe® InDesign® CS2/CS3, eliminating the necessity to acquire and install additional PDF data recovery tools; resulting in enhanced workflow automation and providing huge cost savings in both time and expense.

Key Features

    * Convert PDF documents directly in Adobe InDesign CS2/CS3
      PDF2ID operates as a plug-in for Adobe InDesign, converting PDF files to the InDesign CS2/CS3 format within seconds.

    * Complex PDF file reconstruction

    * Advanced Conversion Controls
      PDF2ID provides complete control over the conversion process. Options for font substitution, text frame reduction, annotation management and image resolutions exist designed for fine-tuning the conversion result.

    * Multi-Platform support

from a little further on in that report





Scope of Conversion

PDF2ID extracts text to form lines, then groups the lines to make paragraphs; applies text fonts and styles such as bold and underline where possible; regroups independent graphic elements; and creates tables. Furthermore, it performs contextual analytics so that related data are correlated and remain together.

As part of the conversion process, PDF2ID also transforms gradients in a PDF file to an equivalent gradient in InDesign, applies clipping paths to images and sets the appropriate InDesign property. Furthermore, it converts text that is on a path to an equivalent InDesign representation. Finally, transparencies and graphics transformations such as rotations, shearing and scaling are also converted to an equivalent InDesign data type.

PDF2ID has been designed to provide editing flexibility rather than a pure and 100% reconstruction of a PDF file to the InDesign format.

PDF2ID doesn't make InDesign a PDF file-editing tool. PDF2ID doesn't provide round-tripping of a PDF file to an editable InDesign file type. Rather, the primary scope and objective of PDF2ID is to provide a seamless and transparent mechanism for PDF data recovery and reuse within InDesign. To achieve this, PDF2ID does its best to preserve the layout while reconstructing data along with the respective property and elements wherever possible.

I downloaded and installed the trial yesterday. Does a nice job but the limitations of the trial version suck. A full trial for this type of plugin would be the only way I'd fork out the $ for it.
