Softany CHM to PDF Converter is a simple, yet powerful software utility which helps individuals quickly convert CHM files to PDFs.
The interface is simple and intuitive, allowing all types of people to find their way around it, even though they do not have experience with computers.
Batch processing and the “drag and drop” function are not integrated. These are considered to be drawbacks, as they could have helped users manage their documents in an easier manner.
All you have to do in order to start the process, is select a CHM file, the output folder, language in which it was written and click the “Convert” button. A new window is going to pop up, containing a progress bar, so that you can easily estimate the remaining time.
It is possible to create a cover, header, footer and table of contents for all the documents you are converting, as well as add title numbers and hints after hyperlinks with a user-input format.
You can also change the page setup, by configuring the paper size (A4, letter, tabloid, A3, or custom height and width etc.) and the margins (expressed in millimeters).
The resulted PDF can be magnified (fit the window or width, zoom 100%), the page layout can be switched from single page to continuous or facing, while the table of contents can be discarded or integrated into a user-input caption.
Although the interface could use a little bit more work, Softany CHM to PDF Converter proves to be an efficient piece of software when it comes to converting Windows HTML Help files to PFDs. There were no bugs, crashes or errors registered during our tests, while CPU and memory usage is minimal.
