    I am using Acrobat 8 and have a PDF file that needs to be converted to a Word Doc. Simply clicking on the 'Export - Word Document' button works fine. When I open the document in Word (2004 for Mac), the file isn't displaying properly and a lot of the page is missing or duplicated.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks, Tiffanny

    Converting a PDF to practically anything else is going to result in some formatting differences. Have you tried just copy/pasting it?

    Conversion between two different versions of Word:win is less than perfect. You cannot expect conversion of a PDF file to a Word document to be perfect. Such a converted document is not intended for and cannot be used as a final draft. You may, however, generate your final draft with only a few tweaks to the converted document.
