Thanks for sharing. However, what the issue often come to me is that converting PDF to Word files for further edition.
From my long time experience of searching and testing, AnyBizSoft PDF to Word Converter supports encrypted files and preserves text, layouts, images and hyperlinks well.
It help me a lot and hope you like it too.

Why should we use third party PDF utility to convert Word file to PDF when Office gives built-in option for PDF conversion.

Any chance there is an option to attach other pdfs and link to them as external documents or separate pages? IE when one opens the pdf, I want them to see the separate pdfs in the ‘attachments’ section but can’t figure out how to do this through word.
Thanks so much
