That's too bad, Curt. Thanks to you and Jim for following up so quickly on it - I'll avoid it!

Well there's ePrint Doc converter & presumably others. Not tried it much, so couldn't recommend it (or not).

-however, the price has since doubled, now $99

If you just want the text on a page, you could just select and copy, then paste to a Word document after running your clip through PureText to strip out everything that isn't text.

PureText can be downloaded here: www.stevemiller.net/puretext/  8)

After 6 years a new version of PureText seems to be coming!:

Note to Windows 8 Users: The default hotkey used by PureText 2.0 (WINDOWS+V) is now claimed by Windows 8 before PureText starts. I'll release a new version soon with a fix. In the meantime, you'll have to pick a different hotkey if you use the hoykey feature.
