    Can anyone recommend a good online pdf to word converter please? - there are many showing up on Google but I wondered if anyone had a good one they know of to save me some time? A previous employee of the company went on a delete rampage on being made redundant and all I have left of a vital document that needs revising is a 71 page pdf which I would rather not have to retype.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    You can just copy and paste text out of a pdf no?

    yes, but there is a lot of formatting that I would like to preserve and that gets lost with C&P. (I did try that first, and Adobe Acrobat conversion, but that sucks)

    edits: Ok, I used this one and it worked pretty well, only a few space issues.

    Cheers for trying. Yep, that's the one I tried in the end and it is pretty good. Far better than Acrobat.
