Really really slow - froze on me as well... takes forever to start up and then ask for a PDF document that then it converts to an RTF text file. If one has Acrobat Pro (and Preview for that matter) one can do the same thing although maybe not as fast. You can just select text and copy-paste it into a document (Word, Pages, RTF, etc.)

"You can just select text and copy-paste it into a document" - what if you have hundreds of them?

What OS you have? This has been tested on 10.4, 10.5 & 10.6 OS X and was working perfectly, even when there are plenty of apps running.

This will allow you automat the extraction on several PDFs at the same time without even opening the PDF file itself.
