Convert PDF Documents to Word

Automatically scrape clipboard data into a new Word document.

In general, PDFs aren’t as smart as they appear. Unless they are tagged [Hack #34] , they have no concept of paragraph, table, or column. This becomes a problem only when you must create a new document using material from an old document. Ideally, you would use the old document’s source file, or maybe even its HTML edition. This isn’t always possible, however. Sometimes you have only a PDF to work with.

Save As . . . DOC, RTF, HTML

Adobe Acrobat 6 enables you to convert your PDF to many different formats with the Save As . . . dialog. These filters work best when the PDF is tagged. Try one to see if it suits your requirements. Adobe Reader enables you to convert your PDF to text by selecting File Save As Text . . . .
