PDF files to txt?

I'd like to add Warlok full instructions to the table info section and they're accessible in Warlok manual, which of course is in pdf format. I downloaded Solid Converter from the Net but it requires regustration/crack. I didn't bother.

Is there any freeware program that just can translate the damn files to txt? I only need it to plain text, Acrobat reader doesn't have this option I guess...

I have that option too, but it's not accessible when I open any of the pinball manuals. See:

Yop need the full (as in very expensive) version of acrobat to do that, and even then, it's a major pain in the butt. there is a pdf to text program out, but it's retail. :(

Oh, I couldn't do it for you, some idiot decided to encypt the file, so neither my html or text convertors will work. Html will just display them as images anyway.

Perhaps you could take a screen shot, then run it through a OCR (optical character recognization) program, scanner software.

well, I could do them up as image files in a htm page, problem is there's no site to post them at.
