Convert PDF to Word doc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just saved over a word doc when I converted it to PDF. Is there any way to undo this? Is there a simple way to convert it back to Word?

    Thanks!

  • Since Word documents and PDF files have different extensions the Word document should still exist.

    If you somehow saved the PDF file with a Word extension:

    • Right-click the file in Windows Explorer.
    • Select Properties from the context menu.
    • Does the Properties dialog have a Previous Versions tab?
    • If so, see if you can find a valid version.

    Otherwise, you can always copy the plain text of the document from the PDF file, and paste into a blank Word document...
