I have a query. How do I import a PDF file to a FM File. The PDF files are years old and we dont have the source file now. To update the files, Im trying to
retrieve the source files. I did try the File -> Import -> File, Select the document, select the Copy Into Document option and import option. The document is imported as reference and not an editable file.
Can someone help me with a solution.

Right. That's how that works.
Unless the PDF has paranoid security (and you will have lost the passwords with the source, in all likelihood),
What version of Acrobat Pro do you have, if any? It can re-export PDF content in some WP formats (not MIF or FM, however). Adobe is promoting this feature at the moment:
In Acrobat X Pro, you can use File> Save As> and then choose Microsoft
Word or Other Options to retrieve text-- though it will probably need
some cleanup afterwards. Tools> Document Processing> Export All Images
can retrieve graphics.
Thanks for your replies.
I just found my source files with another tool. The process used was to generate FM files from that tool and then generate PDF files from FM. I tried this and it works well.
