Someone in my office is attempting to convert a received PDF file (originally a word file that was converted to PDF by the file owner) by the following process,
1.Select all text using PDF select text tool
2. Paste the text in a new word doc.
3. Run Autoformat to ensure page setup and section numbering are ok.
A nasty byproduct of the last step is that it does not appear to behave consistently, inserts TABS (Adjust Alignment) where there should be none - but not consistently, borders and shades areas of text near the word "Figure" etc.
Can anyone point me to a detailed description of the rules used by the Autoformat function - I have tried setting as many different options and combinations thereof including preserve styles but this seems to make little difference.
We do not have Acrobat so that is not an option.
