In addition to what type of files you’re starting with, what operating system are you running? If you’re on a mac, and you’re dealing with .html, .rtf, .doc or .docx files, you can use the built in textutil command line tool to batch convert documents. The following commands assume all your files are .docx files (change to .doc, .html, .rtf, etc…[Read more]

Hi, Anders. I suspect that command-line tools like pdftotext plus a

Matt has offered some excellent advice re: graphic design basics.
