Review the Conversion Summary

Once you have added your PDF files, chosen the output format and selected any options, you will be presented with a Conversion Summary. Here, you can chose the destination directory. By deafult, it tis the same directory as the original file.

Work with the Converted Files

Depending on your software program, you will use Insert, Open or Import to access the file from your file system. Microsoft programs generally use “Insert Picture from File”. Most tools have a drop down menu which displays their supported formats. Once the file is displayed on screen, you may need to right-click on it and Ungroup the graphic in order to access the individual elements. Some files may have nested groups or layers so you may need to ungroup multiple times to access the objects you want to work with.
