    I have a PDF document that I am trying to convert or export into a word doc, however the grahics do not convert over. I'm running Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro and converting to .docx. I need to convert the document into word so that others in my organization can use the document and edit for their local use. Any help someone could give me would be appreciated.

    Thanks Kathy! you posted while I was posting.

    Welcome to TSG Kathy! Hope you find some better help than this from TSG :)
    Converting PDF to word is not support by our buddies at microsoft. There are people making tons of money creating software to do this. they start out saying free pdf converter but if you want the graphics add-on(for example)...pay me.

    Also the PDF by design is hard to manipulate programetically. In theory its the 'Final document'.

    The best answer is give the people that need to edit the pdf Acrobat. Then editing is a breeze.

    If you don't want to buy the acrobat liscense to do this then its a software battle. Manually copy and paste the graphics or google the free converters and test till you find one that works.

    When you find one that works post back!
