Microsoft Word/pdf to word convert


Dear, RR.
I remember years ago converting PDF files to Word documents. Does Adobe sell such a product? Is there another out there. I have tried a couple "Free" downloads. Took me forever to uninstall all the added software. Recommendations, please,
Sincerely, Richard Schlueter

You can use Word 2013 to directly open a PDF file. Most of the time it won't be EDITABLE, but you can still use the document as a background to add info to (for example with text boxes). There are some third-party apps out there that will convert PDF files to editable Word documents, but to be honest I haven't played with any in several years so I can't recommend one.
