What is Solid Framework?
At its simplest, Solid Framework takes PDF files and recreates the documents from which they were created.
When reconstructing a Word document this includes the identification of text, headers/footers, lists, tables, table of contents, hyperlinks and so on.
And it can do this even from printed and scanned documents.
Whoa! Shall I say that again?
Solid Framework can take a printed document and reconstruct it as a Word document including a working table of contents.
It can also reconstruct Excel and PowerPoint documents, or extract all of the data from tables within the PDF and create SQL statements, or all of the text or all of the images.
And it’s really good at doing so if the original document was a Word, Excel or PowerPoint document.
Want to try it out?
You can try out all this functionality for free using the online converter at http://www.simplypdf.com. It’s always powered by the latest version of Solid Framework.
It’s easy to use – just drop in a file, and press “Convert”.
You can even try out the myriad of options that Solid Framework exposes to allow you more control over the conversion.
So it’s just about document conversion then?
While Solid Framework is great at reconstructing documents, there may be reasons why you don’t want to do that.
You may be interested in extracting the content, including the location of the content on the page, and using that for some other purpose.
Perhaps you want to compare two different documents, or translate the content and create an entirely new document with the results, or merge multiple documents together in some special way, or catalog and index the contents of documents, or something else entirely to give you a competitive business edge.
Solid Framework’s super-rich API provides access to the content and context of information within a PDF document, allowing you to use that information for whatever purpose your business requires.
