Converting PDF to RTF Format


We have a requirement to convert PDF documents to rtf format.

According to the product pages for Aspose.PDF and Aspose.Words - Aspose.PDF doesn’t support rtf as an output format. And while Aspose.Words does support saving as .rtf, it doesn’t support loading from PDF.

Is there a product/combination of products that we can use to convert PDF to rtf?


You can use Aspose.Words for .NET to import PDF into Aspose.Words’ DOM and convert it to RTF as shown below.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "input.pdf");
doc.Save(MyDir + "21.4.rtf");

Unfortunately, import of PDF into Aspose.Words’ DOM is not supported by Aspose.Words for Java. We logged this feature request as WORDSJAVA-2366 in our issue tracking system. You will be notified via this forum thread once this feature is available. We apologize for your inconvenience.
