Neat interface but where's the "export all" option that would make it a very worthwhile purchase (if it opened the documents I have in mind, which it doesn't - email on the way!).

Hi John,

Thanks for providing me with the pdf to track down your problem.

The issue with that particular pdf is, probably due to scanning it in, that each page is considered to be an entire image, as opposed to the separation of text and images.

If you open it with Preview, you'll see that it's not possible to highlight the text.

So, if I added support to extract these "images", it will just give you each page as an image which is probably not what you want.

As for the export all option, that is on the way so stay tuned!

I hope that helped.

Best Regards


Great to hear an "export all" command is on the way.

Yes you are right, the images were scanned into Word on a PC (It's the quickest way to use the sheet-feeding scanner in the office).

I have many of these documents and I would love to be able to turn every page into a high quality PNG file.

Why should the application ignore the images just because they are large and occupy the whole page?

The way the PDF embedded these images is a little different which is why they were ignored, but I have now added support for it, so look out for the upcoming version.

Best Regards


Still looking... Any chance of 1.0.2?

(The version with the batch convert is the one I really want I guess. Good luck with that)

Sorry for the delay in my reply.

I hope the newly released version 1.02 is what you were after.


Thanks. The new features look like just what I need. I have some big .pdfs to get stuck into so I'll let you know how I get on (now that I am paid up!).

The colours are all inverted in the images for some reason. There's no help, and the link to the developer's site goes to an empty site.

OK, there's a README file in the .dmg, but that's no substitute for something that comes up (in Help Viewer, please, not a browser or TextEdit) when you click on the Help menu :)

Hi Jobby,

Could you please email the developer about the problem your having. Is it just with a particular pdf or all pdf documents your opening?

If it's the latter, emailing the pdf that your having problems with would greatly be appreciated to help track down the problem.

Lastly, the website is currently under construction and I do apologise for the lack of support.
