Convert a PDF to Word

Modified on Fri, 10 Jul 2020 at 08:38 AM

You can convert your PDF to a Word document using just Microsoft Word. Converting in Word often leads to style and formatting issues, so it’s not always the most reliable method. However, it certainly works well enough for simple documents or when you just need to get stuff into an editable format. 

We do have a paid-for version of Adobe acrobat so if this method does not work please log a ticket and we will be happy to convert.

Please note: PDF conversion can never be 100% and scanned documents often do not work.

Click “File” on the Word ribbon.

In the sidebar that opens, click the “Open” button.

On the Open page, browse to wherever your PDF is stored (This PC, OneDrive, whatever).

Locate and select your PDF, and then click the “Open” button.

A warning pop ups, indicating that your new document may lose some of the formatting it had as a PDF. Don’t worry. Your original PDF will remain intact; this is just letting you know that the new Word document you’re creating from the PDF might not look exactly the same. Click the “OK” button.

Word converts the PDF and opens up your new Word document right away.
