Using Spire.PDF for .NET to generate word document from PDF
A common use case over the years has been to convert the word documents in PDF documents for various obvious reasons. However, the opposite scenario has been relatively complex to implement.
Thanks to the new Spire.PDF for .Net, this can be really accomplished with relatively ease.
In this article, I will give a small walk-though on my thoughts and usage of this component.
To start with, you can download the Spire.PDF installation package from the link below. The installation is quite simple and professionally wrapped in a MSI. However, note that you don’t need to install this package on every server where you install your app using Spire.PDF.
Also, note that apart from the installer or a reference the Spire.PDF DLL, a valid license file is required.
At the time of writing this post, the price of various license is as follows. From the cost perspective, the return on investment is very high and this also provides you a support from the vendor. A win-win in my opinion.
Let’s start with a demo project. The first step is to include the reference to the Spire.PDF and License assemblies.
The interface of the component is very clear is self explanatory. Even without looking at any sort of documentation, I was able to write “3 line” program which can convert the PDF document to a word document. (or any other support format such as HTML, Image etc.)
Ok, now when we are ready with the program; let’s create a document with different elements such as Heading, Table and a paragraph.
The good news is that Spire.PDF does the 100% conversion keeping the output Word document same as the initial PDF document.
Overall, I was impressed by the power and ease provided by this product. While it didn’t always do everything in the way that I thought it should, it is probably due more to my lack of understanding of how the Word document model works rather than a flaw in this library. From a license and pricing overview, it’s not very expensive compared to other products in the markets which are offering the same functionality. Thus, a real value for money in my opinion.
