Are there any limits on document size? Let's say I would like to convert 100Mb document.
Theoretically, there are no any limitations on the documents size, but due to the web interface of the service you have to make sure that you are ready to wait until the end of the conversion.
What Microsoft Word source formats do you support? Can I upload Microsoft Word 2000 to convert it to PDF or service requires the latest version in DOCX format to meet the conversion requirements?
We support all formats starting from Microsoft Word 2003. So, please, try to keep your Microsoft Office software up-to-date or, as an alternate, download the Compatibility Pack to manually convert the old version of Microsoft Word's document.
Can I make document conversion in batch?
Currently we do not support the archives or batch documents processing due to the lack of users who need this functionality and system limitation.
I have many documents without extensions or some non-trivial extensions but I definitely know that they are in Microsoft Word format. Can I upload them or your service will ignore the conversion and I will have to update their extensions manually?
There is no need to update the extensions. The service will recognize the type of the document on the fly, so if the format is incorrect the conversion will fail , otherwise everything should be find and you will get your expected documents.
