Most of us create PDFs with two expectations: That they will not be modified, and that nearly anyone can read one without paying anything for software. The truth is that PDFs can be deconstructed relatively easily. If you have a legitimate reason to edit PDF content in another application, there are some tools you should know about.
1. Office 2013 – If you are lucky enough to have access to the new Office suite, you already have this capability. Office 2013, natively, allows you to open a PDF right in Word. If you bought Office 2013 (or the newest version of Office 365), you already own it.
I have experimented with quite a few free, free-to-try and cheap third party applications. Without exception, they have all failed me in some simple ways. Either the software is buggy and doesn’t accurately convert the PDF or, recently, as I found to my dismay, the installation of this free-to-try software installed all sorts of extra things on my computer that I didn’t want. The opt-out selections for some of these weren’t obvious enough for me to catch them. And, I do look for those things. So, it is truly caveat emptor (buyer beware) with third party freeware/free-to-try ware.
