One of such converters is the online service Cometdocs, which allows you to convert PDF to other formats via a web interface. However, today I want to tell you about him, but about Cometdocs for desktop – a standalone tool from the same developer that provides the same functionality directly in Windows. Besides converting PDF to other formats, the tool allows you to create PDF from other files. Details below.
