Question: "How do I convert PDF to Word / PDF to Doc / PDF to Docx?"
Answer: With Wide Angle PDF Converter, you can quickly convert a PDF file to a Word document, enabling you to share the document in your contact's preferred format or allowing you to edit and manage the document with the tools that Word provides. This is a great tool to use on Windows computers.
To do this, simply launch PDF Converter and hit the Open Document button from the welcome screen.
With your document open, click the "To Word" button within the Home tab of the PDF Converter tool bar. This will open a window asking where you would like to save the Word file to on your computer. Choose a location, and click Save to start the conversion. This function converts the PDF to a docx file (Word 2007+) as default.
If you are using an earlier version of Word than 2007, you'll need to convert your PDF to a doc file instead of docx.
The same process applies as above, however the button you'll need is the "To doc" button under the Convert tab in the PDF Converter toolbar.
