Is there a quick way of converting pdf files to text or Word so that we and work with them to create topic files.  I have been copying paragraph by paragraph.  Is there an easier way?     Thanks!

The simplest method is to click on Save as in the file menu/tab or wherever it is in the PDF reader you are using, and in the File Save As Dialog, click on the dropdown combo box on Txt option, and then click on the OK or Save as button.

Thankyou.  I don't seem to have the same options.  I can only save as pdf.  I tried to save as .txt but it displayed computer code.

What is the is the PDF reader you are using, e.g., Adobe, Foxit or something else?

 

Let me know what PDF Reader you are using, and I'll download it, and find out how to convert it to a text (txt)  file, and show you how it can be done in a video

 

Blessings,
