PDF to Word - is this simple?

Hi all, A few work colleagues are having trouble converting PDFs to Word, something to do with images changing or moving? Isn't this something a good piece of software can solve, please?

Nah doesn't work with images :( You might have to use online converters or buy a proper app to do the job.

I used pdf2doc. com to convert successfully including images. Caveats on using online converters is the privacy of the document and safety. I scanned the document first prior to opening and when opened in Word left it in Protected view.

Thanks for this. I don’t mind buying software for this but will the images issue still be there?

Talkhelper looks good at $29.99 Link . To test the software out download the trial version. Your documents will be watermarked but you can see how well the PDF has been converted. Impressive I think.

P.S. someone else might chip in with a free or cheaper program so as you trial Talkhelper you might like to wait a bit in case someone else posts a suggestion.

Thank you for that. Being as there are quite a few of my colleagues at a college, might having the software on more than one PC be an option?

*an issue at all?

It's 1 Licence to 1 PC.

There are many option for this I think. So pointing out one best is difficult.
