I already know that to 'convert' a pdf to a doc file, you just need to follow the File > Save As... > [filename].doc "All files"
But the problem is that when you do that, you lose your formatting. And when you copy and paste, the same thing happens: the formatting is erased, like copying something into notepad.
In my line of work I receive a [bleep] of a lot of scripts to read, as well as contracts, rights reports etc, and increasingly they're being sent as pdf files.
We want to be able to edit them, change page setups etc, but if it's avoidable, don't want to shell out for a corporate version of Acrobat (which I understand allows you to convert pdf to text whilst keeping the formatting). Obviously if it's unavoidable then we'll bump for the money, but first I wanted to ask you guys:
a) Is there a way it can be done from Adobe Reader?
b) If not, is there some freeware that can help me out?
All the best,
