Copying and pasting from your PDF to create a Word document could be time-consuming. The PDF to Word converter enables you to convert PDF back to the original file format instead of re-creating the document from scratch in Microsoft Word.
Option 1 - From the Top Menu
1. Open a PDF and tap the "More" button in the top right corner of the screen.
2. Choose "Convert" from the menu.
3. Select the output file format by swiping left or right. PDF Reader now supports PDF to .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, xlsx, .html, .rtf, .txt, png, and .epub conversions.
4. PDF Reader supports 2 options for file conversions, including built-in and cloud converter. If the output file format can be converted via the built-in converter, PDF Reader will automatically set the built-in converter as the default (available for version 7.3 and later).
You can check if you're using the built-in or cloud converter from the conversion settings:
- Available for built-in and cloud converter - the "Built-in Converter" toggle can be switched on/off (use the cloud converter if you turn off the toggle)
- Built-in converter only - the "Built-in Converter" toggle is always on (cannot be turned off)
- Cloud converter only - the "Built-in Converter" toggle is not available
5. When you use the cloud converter, the file conversion is performed on the cloud. Then you can check the status from within the "Task Manager" section.
6. After conversion, the output file will be saved in the "Converted" folder in the "Documents" tab (your file list).
(Note: PDF Converter is the advanced tool that requires a Document 365 subscription.)
Option 2 - From the Drop-Down Menu
1. Go to the file list.
2. In thumbnails view, tap on the arrow under each file to reveal the drop-down menu.
3. Choose "Convert".
4. Then you could select the output file format and begin the converting process.
