Convert PDF to Word with Solid PDF Tools

Converting a PDF document into a Microsoft® Word document is easy with Solid PDF Tools. On the Solid PDF Tools Start Page, simply click the “Convert PDF to Word” link in the “Getting Started” section. Then on the palette choose a file (or files) using the file dialog screen.

Advanced Options:
Using the advanced options dialog screen you can set specific conversion options that allow you to control Layout, Image Recovery, Table Detection and more.

Layout and Formatting
Choose the reconstruction mode that is most appropriate for the conversion of your PDF document.

Flowing - Recovers page layout, columns, formatting, and graphics, and preserves text flow.
Continuous - Correctly reconstructs the text order but will only recover paragraph formatting, graphics, and text flow.
Plain Text - Displays text without any formatting or layout
Exact - Uses Word text boxes to ensure that the text and graphic layout in the Word document is the same as the PDF document.

Table Detection
Table detection may be applied when Flowing or Continuous reconstruction mode is used to recognize page layout. This option is ideal for text documents.

Headers and Footers
Solid PDF Tools provides you with the option for converting headers and/or footers. This allows you to place them in Microsoft® Word's header/footer feature, keep them on each page as separate text boxes, or remove them altogether. To recover headers and footers you must select the "Flowing" reconstruction mode.

Converted File
Your converted PDF document will automatically open in Word for editing.
