IDRsolutions offers FREE PDF-extraction software

JANUARY 10, 2003 — IDRsolutions, Ltd. is now offering a free version of its "Storypad" PDF-extraction software. The free software, which is called "Storypad PERSONAL," lets you extract text and images from PDF files and re-use the text and images easily.

Extracting text and images from PDF files presents a huge headache and can be a very messy process. That's because most PDF files contain no inherent structure, so the data needs to be reconstituted. IDR's "Storypad" product line is a very powerful and flexible solution that allows data to be extracted from PDF files and repurposed.

When extracting information from PDF files, Storypad attempts to maintain the content flow or allow the user to retain the layout, thereby providing material which is readily reusable. In other words, Storypad helps you to retain formatting information and relationships among headings, subheadings, etc.

Because recognizing associations among the elements on a page can be more of an art form than a science, Storypad offers several user-configurable algorithms that can be used with manual merging to extract content from even the most idiosyncratic page.

The free "Storypad PERSONAL" software is being offered by IDRsolutions as a "technology preview," to demonstrate what can be achieved with software from IDRsolutions. However, the free "Storypad PERSONAL" software will meet the needs of many users as-is.
