The easiest way to convert a PDF document into Microsoft Word format is to use Adobe Acrobat Pro. (Note: This is NOT the same as the free Adobe Reader program.) Adobe Acrobat Pro is available on many campus computers, including all of the 120+ computers in the campus library.
Note: The formatting in your converted document may not be exactly like the original PDF. Also, some PDF files have security settings that prevent exporting and editing.
To use Adobe Acrobat Pro to convert your PDF:
- Right-click on your PDF file name and select Open with > Acrobat Acrobat.
- Click File > Save As Other... > Microsoft Word > Word document.
- Choose the desired save location, then click Save.
Remember to open the new Word document to make any formatting adjustments needed.
