Re: How to convert pdf to word or PPT?

The problem is that a PDF is an end-stage format, just like a printed sheet of paper.

Most of the original data is lost.

In most cases the information can get recovered, but don't expect a 1:1 copy.

I know a open-source based tool, , that can extract text, layout and pictures.

I tried a lot of tools, and Adobe's pdfextract works best, but that one is not free and expensive.


If your PDF is scanned, your scanner has most of the time OCR software included, then use that to get the text out of your PDF.
