If you don't like using the open file dialog box to find and select PDF files, you can drag the PDF file into the open document open dialog box to make your PDF converter do all the work for you. Now click on the Convert button. It's a dialog box that gives you a window with four “convert” tabs: PDF to Word, PDF to HTML, PDF to Plain Text and PDF to Text. The first tab is where you will need to go to convert your PDF document to Word. You have a number of options for this step. You can change default formatting, specify a font and page size to convert, export the Word document to HTML text format or simply click the “convert” button. This will initiate a wizard that will walk you through the process in your PDF document. On the PDF to Word dialog box, you can choose a page width and line height. You can also choose between using an embedded, .dot, .doc and/or .docx file format. The default font that Word uses can be changed to any of the fonts on your Windows system, but you must choose a font you agree with. To the right of the font selection is a button that allows you to choose Microsoft Word's font. It's a good idea to change the default font so that everything in Word reads easily, even the fonts. Then you can use the drop-down menu to specify the Word document format and the file format. Here are some settings you can choose from and/or set at the top of the dialog box: Word document format: The default file format is .doc. You can choose to have your document in either ODT or DOCX. DOCX stands for Document Object Model X. DOC format is the standard version of the .docx file format used for Microsoft Office's DOC format. Word file format: The default Word file format is DOCX. The .docx file format is the standard Adobe Word file format used by Microsoft since Office 97 and Office 2000. (It has since been replaced by .pdf .doc .APX .PPTX .PDF .pps .DWG, and is now Adobe Acrobat.) PDF documents are stored in .pdf files and are not supported by Word 2023 and beyond. Word 2023 and Word 2023 cannot open some PDFs natively. (Microsoft has since upgraded Word 2023 to 2010.) You should always use DOCX format if you require a native DOC file format with Microsoft Word.
