    Post Any suggestion for copying from a pdf to a word document?

    Hi,


    I want to copy a text from a PDF file to the Microsoft office word document. I select a text higliting the phrases I need but upon I paste it some odd characters appear.

    Any suggestion for copying from a pdf to a word document?

    Thanks

    Seemed to be in wrong forum. Moved.

    A Google Search shows a number of possibilities. I cannot attest to their use as I have never used any of them.

    In addition to searching for convert, search for methods to import. Later versions of MS Word will have more features in this area so it's possible you may be able to import more directly.

    In any case the idea is to convert/import the PDF document and then just keep the parts you want. I don't think just trying to copy parts from a PDF document without conversion will work unless whatever PDF reader used to view the PDF can export selected parts as a picture or rich text file.
