How to Convert a PDF File to a Word Doc
Portable Document Format (PDF), a commonly used format for electronic documents, sometimes need to be converted to a text-based document. The main advantage of doing so is you can freely edit text in a Word document, while PDFs cannot be changed easily. To convert an existing PDF file to a Word document, either use the PDF software Adobe Acrobat or opt for a free online conversion tool.
