Default How to recover text from any files by using the "Recover Text from Any File" converte

What Will I Lose by Using the "Recover Text from Any File" Converter?
The "Recover Text from Any File" converter has its limitations. Document formatting is lost, along with anything that is not formatted as text. Graphics, fields, drawing objects, and so on are not converted. However, headers, footers, footnotes, endnotes, and field text are retained as simple text.
