convert pdf files into word

Sharing a file in PDF format allows people to view the document regardless of what word processor they are using. More importantly, it prevents formatting errors from cropping up due to word-processor incompatibilities, making PDFs a must for official documents like resumes and important letters. To convert a Microsoft Word document to PDF format, use one of the following methods.


  • The best solution is probably to use Adobe Acrobat which comes with functionality to export a pdf as doc/rtf/html. Unfortunately the product is rather expensive for single use.
  • A quick and dirty conversion routine for text only is to use Google. If you mail a pdf as an attachment to a GMail account, Google offers you the option to download it as a HTML file. And Word can handle those.
  • user text selection tool in adobe reader
    • Open the PDF file in a reader, for example in standard Adobe Reader.
    • Switch to the text selection tool.
    • Select the desired part of the text and copy it to the clipboard.
    • Run MS Word or any other editor and paste the text into it.
