‘PDF is where documents go to die,’ says Microsoft exec

A senior executive at Microsoft has hammered the PDF format, complaining that it is ‘where documents go to die’.

In the discussions around the next generation of Office, Microsoft Office’s general manager Chris Pratley told TechRadar about his problems with the common but much derided document format.

"PDF is where documents go to die," he said. "Once something is in PDF, it’s like a roach motel for data.

"I could print it but that’s not so useful. I copy a table and take that back to Word with high hopes and what I get is not that great."

Office improvements

Obviously the conversation continued around what Office 2013 does with PDFs in terms of improving the formatting, with PDF Flow a major new feature.

"Now it’s a Word file; it’s not an image of a word file, it’s not a dumb translation of letters to words, it actually is Word structure," he continued.
