PDF2ID recreates the intended construction and layout of the document by forming paragraphs; applying styles; regrouping independent graphic elements; extracting images; creating tables; recovering annotations and other elements automatically. PDF2ID converts every page in a PDF file to an equivalent page in the resulting InDesign document.
PDF2ID also provides options for converting or extracting data from a range of pages in a PDF document. You can extract text or images, or convert the entire document to the InDesign format.
PDF2ID enables recovery and reuse of the contents stored in PDF files making them available for use by anyone. Since PDF2ID is a plug-in for Adobe InDesign it is not necessary to acquire and install additional PDF editing software and tools, resulting in huge cost savings in both time and expense.
"PDF2ID is a must have tool for any InDesign user who needs to convert PDFs into native InDesign documents. There's simply no other solution like it in the market today."
Chris Kitchener, Product Manager, Adobe® InDesign

Note: Layout reconstruction varies depending on document and may not be 100% accurate. PDF2ID does not support Type 3 fonts and user-defined dictionaries embedded in PDF files. Moreover, PDF2ID does not perform Optical Character Recognition/Analysis. Scanned pages of printouts stored in PDF documents are usually images. PDF2ID therefore treats such data as images. It also does not process PDF forms, graphics filters, 3D data in PDF files, JBIG2 images and certain graphics operations. Finally, PDF2ID doesn't process externally linked files or embedded fonts.
