I have some PDF documents that I need converted to MSWord. I follow the Acrobat instructions but I can't get it to work. The only "save as" command that works is the Rich Text, but when I open it in Word, the copy is still a solid chunk, not editable type. Any help will be appreciated.

also...depending on the original PDF...it may be set up this way so that you can't edit the pdf to begin with...

Thank you for your replies. When I do as the instructions say; in Word the type is just an udeditable image of the type. It has a box around it and little squares in the corners.

The original documents were scanned on a Kyocera copier and sent to me by
e-mail as a PDF attachment.

from PM

this is why you can't edit it...the kyocera copier scanned the file as an image...not as editable text... the copier might not be capable to do ocr...or it might not be set up to do so...or someone just didn't press the right button when copying the document
