HI.

Is there anyway that a pdf file (of text) can be exported into a word document? I have a uni worksheet to write my answers in, but the uni nicely saved it as a pdf not a word file.

Thanks

If you open it in preview you should be able to change tool mode to text and copy all the text and paste into word (you'll generally lose all the formatting) - but it works. Not sure of an actual app to do what you say, but it may exist!

PDFPen works, but is not free.

Otherwise, resize a PowerPoint slide to A4 size, then import the PDF into the background. Then use PowerPoint's text boxes/drawing functions to "fill in" the slide.

Then print to PDF at the end.

Unis love making students print stuff out :D

i guess it's a low possibility that you've got no printer but you HAVE got a scanner and OCR software, but it's worth mentioning
