PDF to Word Conversion: One Solution for a Number of Hassles

MS Word is one of the most widely used authoring programs for creating simple documents that can contain anything from professional reports to legal documents to publication articles. Transferring them into the PDF format is done for a number of reasons. This may be for archiving, Internet publishing, or digital work processes, just to name a few. The PDF format is a life saver for any of those needs. It’s quick and easy to create, it contains great viewing options, and it can handle a variety of media as well as a range of file sizes.

However, as great as the PDF is, everyone in a working, studying, or researching environment knows that the PDF is a difficult-to-handle format because of its purpose and nature. The information locked within can be difficult to manipulate to your own specific needs which can be small or great. Here are a few:

Scenario 1: Doing research, you come across a PDF file from which you only want to print up certain sections of certain pages.

Scenario 2: You’re a student and are trying to print up the study and lecture notes from your class that are online in PDF form.

Scenario 3: Your work requires you to have a certain PDF file in hard copy, but with changes that need to be included.

A Makeshift Solution

You need to be efficient with your time and you need to be productive with your workload. What do you do to accomplish the task at hand?

You can try copying and pasting data from the PDF into a Word document, but the text might appear in a different font or a little skewed or in different paragraph formatting. You'll probably spend more time reformatting the document to make the text or graphics fit properly and economically on the page, than you’d spend creating an entirely new document.

You can try that as well: working from screen to paper, copying out by hand, or manually retyping content in a new document. Yet, eyestrain and time are things you can't afford.

For changes that you need to make, trying to directly edit and then print the PDF document is just not possible because of security measures put in place. You're stuck for ideas and time is of the essence.

We've all been there. We've all done that. We all know that none of it works.

An Exact Extract Solution

However, there is a faster, more convenient way to approach this situation. One solution to all three problems is to convert the PDF file into a Word document. All you need is the PDF file to be converted, a PDF to Word conversion software application and MS Word (in which to work on your file after conversion). After that, it becomes much easier to get your work done as it should be.

Yet, you may ask, "But what about the extra one hundred pages I don't need?"; "What about the graphics I don't want to print alongside the notes?"; or "What about the security settings?".

You don't need another solution—you need a good solution. Good solutions are ones that give you the flexibility of having options and we've got a good one for you.
