PDF to DOC

Post#1 by Krikor » 08 Mar 2019, 19:19


Hi all,
I would like to use a PDF to create a template, but I need to pass this PDF to DOC format.

What free program could you suggest me to be able to do this export from PDF to DOC while maintaining the original PDF formatting?

Thank you!

You might want to check these. I have not tried any of them so I cannot vouch for them.

Hi Pat,

I researched several programs to convert pdf to doc.

Only those for online use (although I preferred one that worked offline).

The difficulty I have had is that the original formatting in this conversion process has been lost, for the part of it.

As I'm hoping to convert templates, the formatting should be 100% preserved in this process.

Although I am converting to DOC, I don't use MS Word as a text editor, but rather the OpenOffice text editor.

What I realized, and that may be the cause of some of the problems, is that these online converters pass the PDF to DOCX, not DOC. This sometimes preserves formatting if I open the file through MS Word, but this same file, when opened in OpenOffice (Writer), has several problems in formatting.

At the moment, the best I found was an option that saves as DOCX, so in Word (MS) the formatting is preserved, then saved this file as DOC and step open it in Writer.

I'll take a look at this link you suggested, and I'll see the result.

Thanks a lot for the help! :thank_you:
