PDF to Word converters

For both of these, you need to know where the pdf document is saved, because you will upload it.
NOTE: After the conversion/download, some re-formatting may be needed (spacing, font, margins, table features).

pdf-to-word-converter This only converts if the document was originally created in Word then converted to PDF.  If it was scanned (copied) to PDF, it won’t be editable.

Convertfiles This one usually converts the document if it was scanned because it acts as an OCR.  However, if there is a graphic (SmartArt) w/text, the graphics will not convert but the words might.
