    Hi All.

    Instead of wading through all the scam utilities regarding such, I thought I'd ask if anyone could recommend one.

    BTW- For some reason, I thought Foxit had the ability to "Save As" as a doc file, but it doesn't.

    Not an elegant solution but try opening the pdf, print to Microsoft XPF Document Writer (You probably need MS Office installed for this option). From there you may be able to open it and copy/paste into Word.

    You can not edit a pdf file from the typical free software that opens them - Adobe's Reader. You have to use other software, like the full Acrobat software. There are others out there.

    My bank supplies pdf statement files that even my Adobe Acrobat program (v11) can't edit. I print the files to Microsoft XPF Document Writer. Once in that format, I can import them into normal pdf files.
