Convert PDF to MS Word

The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.

  • To check or change the settings that Acrobat uses to convert PDF Content to Word format, open Preferences (choose Acrobat > or Edit > Preferences in Windows).
  • choose Convert from PDF from the list of Categories on the left side of the dialog box.
  • Then choose Microsoft Word Document from the Converting from PDF scrollable list.
  • The window at right shows you how Acrobat will handle the conversion, including whether it will include comments, preserve columns and down sample images.
  • To change these settings, click the Edit Settings button. (Alternatively, you can change these settings when you convert any given document by clicking the Settings button in the Save As dialog box.)
