8 min read

Converting Word documents to PDFs is easy simply select the correct option from the Save Menu but converting PDFs to Word format is a little more complicated. A very basic solution would be to simply copy the text of a PDF and paste it into Microsoft Word, but this is far from being an ideal solution. A far better option is to use Foxit Reader .

#1 Using Foxit Reader


Download the software, run through the installation process as normal, and then launch the program and load up a PDF file you would like to convert into a different file format.

Converting from PDF to Word format with Foxit Reader is a two-step process, but it’s incredibly simple. You’ll first need to convert from PDF to text format,  then convert from text to Word.

With your chosen PDF loaded in the program, click the File tab and select the Save As option. Choose where you would like to save the converted document and enter a suitable name. From the ‘Save as type‘ drop down menu select TXT Files (*.txt) and then click Save. This will extract the text from the file and save it as a new document.

In Word, click the File menu or tab and select open before browsing through the contents of your hard drive to find the text file you’ve just created.

If you can’t see the file, select All Files from the drop-down menu to the right of the File Name field. The file will look rather different to the original, but all of the text will be present.

You may find that you need to tidy up the text that has been converted from PDF format, and you will probably want to delete some of the extra bits and pieces that have been added (such as details about page numbering and so on).

Once this has been done, you can tinker with other formatting options before you go ahead and save it in Word format. Click the File menu, select Save As and enter a name for the file before opting to save it in Word format (.doc or .docx). Click Save and the your are good go.
