I have to convert a PDF to Word occasionally but I never convert with Acrobat. I use BCL easy Converter (I think it cost $20).
The output to an RTF is way better than what I can get from a PDF to Word via Acrobat. But it's still not great. If the output was for my use, I'd have to protest loudly to try for a better option - or call in sick whenever it was necessary ;-))) Alison -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Syed Zaeem Hosain (syed.hos...@aeris.net) Sent: Thursday, February 27, 2014 6:37 AM To: Alan Salo (Ariens Plant 1); Harding, Dan; email@example.com Subject: RE: Round-trip revisions via MS Word.

This approach did not work for me unfortunately when I was converting a FrameMaker documents to Word for one of our guys. (Same platform, versions, etc.) The Acrobat output in Word form was barely usable ... I spent quite a bit of time with manual edits. I also tried to use PDF Converter (to bring the PDF into Word) and it actually worked better for the text, but missed some critical items (I forget what the problem was), so I ended up not using it. For another project, I ended up using MIF2Go that I had purchased in the interim, and it was _much_ better ... _far_ less manual fixing afterwards.
