Left View

Convert Assistant in Left View displays a title bar, a menu bar, a toolbar and a left panel where page preview, processing options and output options can be displayed and the page range can be defined.

The toolbar contains the same tools as the Quick View, such as the Open, Preview, Mode, Output and Convert All tools. See a detailed description of the tools in the About the Converter Assistant Toolbar topic.

The Left View appears only if Convert Assistant was started from one of the integrated programs, where the source file was already selected. Therefore, the Open tool is always grayed because this file has already been opened.

Use the arrowhead navigation buttons to move between pages.

Use the In range, Out of range or Convert All tools, or the Pages edit box to define a page range to be converted.

The processing options tool displays one of the following:

  • Standard icon Standard

  • Legal icon Legal

  • Spreadsheet icon Spreadsheet

  • Form icon Form

If the current choice is not suitable, you can select a different processing mode from the drop-down list. The output options tool displays one of the following:

  • Word icon Word

  • WordPerfect icon Word Perfect

  • Excel icon Excel

  • PowerPoint icon PowerPoint

  • RTF icon RTF

Convert All and Convert Selected icons Click Convert All (Ctrl + 5) to start conversion.

When Convert Assistant is started from Microsoft Excel, the only possible processing mode is Spreadsheet and the output format is always Microsoft Excel. In other cases, you also have to select a processing mode:

  • Standard

  • Legal

  • Spreadsheet (not shown if Convert Assistant was started from MS Word)

  • Form

Note The converted file appears in the application where Convert Assistant was started from (Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint), or in the selected target application when Convert Assistant was started from Windows Explorer or Microsoft Outlook.
