    PDF Help-Need to Unlock or Convert to word

    Title says it all, any contribuative positive help is greatly appreciated.
    Our world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.

    Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

    if you want something, go after it. if you want to screw someone over, look DEEP in your heart and realize Karma is a bitch

    On many pdfs you can still highlight text and copy/paste. Barring that, you need someone with adobe, not just the reader.

    Hut, I would LOVE to give it to my secretary, however, in this economy, i not only lost my personal chauffeur and my secretary, I also lost my yob; whence the need for unlocking the pdf-it's part of a job app.

    used to be a way to 'print to file', from the main print options, but it's been years since i tried it...

    A few items on this page should do the trick:

    I'm on my way to get drunk, but CDubz might be right in that I'm not sure it'll work for you. Regardless, there should be an icon near the top right area of the toolbar called 'flattened pages'. Click it. Next go click on Edit or Tools or Advanced at the top (forget where), then click on something that reads 'Recognize OCR Text'. Select all pages. This will take some time especially for a doc over 50 pages. After the OCR is complete, click 'Save As' and change the file extension to .doc before saving.

    Ditto, I can covert it for you and have it back to you within a couple of minutes.
    I think that the human mind is unique among all other forms of life in that it can spontaneously create unique thoughts and provide unique behaviors. Instead of rewarding that uniqueness we, for some reason probably because of cultural and social necessity, we chastise unique behavior and reward conformity.

    Why don't you just copy-image the PDF and paste it into word?

    Tech Talk. Do you have a scanner? If so then you could scan followed by either pasting the graphic image into the Word document, or run OCR software to convert to text and then paste text into the Word....

    Otherwise there are a few free for the download PDF software packages that have writing capabilities. But is sounds like it is a form of some type and the 3rd party packages do not always handle the writing and editing as well as Adobe's bigger dollar licensed Acrobat Standard or Pro editions.

    if you copy and paste it into a word document you lose all formating. for a small file its not a big deal but for bigger stuff its a huge PITA.
