1. Why I get "Converting failed" error message when I extracting from a PDF file?
Do you have a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file which cannot be printed, copied, or edited? Your PDF file has had password security and other restrictions added, you need remove restrictions.

The PDF file format is complex, there are cases that text in a PDF file are actually pictures. We do not grantee PDF to Text will work for every PDF file, especially ones that have picture text.
