Default How to convert pdf to word or PPT?

I've bought a pdf format ebook and would like to quote some sections to make a word or PPT presentation for my teaching class, buy somehow I can only copy text but not the charts and photos which are the most important things.So how can I convert the pdf ebook to word or PPT document without changing the original layouts? Can Adobe do that?Or any other software?

It depends on how the file was created..

Most likely you won't be able to reverse it and you probably have to capture those charts and photos as a graphic objects.. (say, do a screen capture.. then you can copy and paste that as pictures..)

Yeah I remember Adobe does have a professional converter can do that, but it cost a lot of money.You won't have to convert the pdf file.You can copy the text you want to your word or ppt file for further editing.As for the charts and photos, you can capture from the computer's screen and then put it into your file.In that way you can easily make your own word/ppt.



But if you still want to convert the file, you can refer to the following articles:

Converting a PDF to a DOC format can be challenging without Adobe Acrobat. As of October 2012, Acrobat XI Pro costs $199 on the Adobe website.But you don't necessarily need Acrobat to [convert pdf file to Word document]. There're lots of PDF to word/ppt converter on the Internet, just type your question to google and there'll be many recommendations.
I don't have experience on [converting PDF file to PowerPoint], but you can try to save every page of the pdf file as image and export to a new PPT document.

That's a common question pdf users've come across.
PDF(Portable Document Format) was originally developed by Adobe, therefore Adobe definately has the most professional converter to help you do what you need, with a pretty expensive price of course.I don't think there's any other way to convert pdf format to word or ppt without a software, unless you are a programmer.
Here're some information that might help you to solve your problem:

All first time posters in this thread pushing pdf wares have had their posts deleted and will be banned, it is obviously spam phishing, I had made a mental note at the time to come back and check after the thread had been rolling a while, but I forgot, now that I see what's been going on, it is indeed obvious.
