moderated Re: Opening A PDF File In Word?

CathyAnne Murtha <cathy@...>

You can open a PDF document in Microsoft Word like any other document in Microsoft Word.


In the “Open Field” dialog (CTRL-F12), navigate to the document and activate it.


Word opens a dialog asking if you want to convert the PDF document and alerts you it could take some time.  Activate the OK button.

If you want to avoid this dialog in the future, check the “Don’t show this message in the future” checkbox.


The document  is converted and opens in Microsoft Word.


To save the document, use the “Save As” dialog (F12).


I hope this answers your question.

Subject: Opening A PDF File In Word?


Hello, everyone.


Please forgive this request for previously-posted information, but could someone re-post the instructions for opening and saving a PDF document in Microsoft Word?


I have  a PDF file here, in which words are running together, and I’d like to try that approach to see if it remedies the problem.


Thanks in advance for the help!
