Yes, but doesn't that render the extracted graphics as .jpgs? I strongly believe that .jpg is not the best graphic format to use for technical publications. Everyone's usage may vary and a lot depends on how the graphics were inserted in the Word doc in the first place, but .jpgs don't work for me; nor can I edit them. I prefer vector when possible and when not, I'll save out as .tif. But I don't have to make that decision if I let Acrobat extract as .eps. Even if the Word graphics are bitmaps, they don't lose any information when converted to .eps.

from .docx to .zip, extract the files, and the images are all in
