I am using windows 8, desktop version of Adobe Reader XI and have purchased ExportPDF.
I have tried to convert a number of PDFs (not originally created by me) to word documents.
The images always convert, but the text ends mostly comes out as symbols, for example:
When I have tried to export from PDF online, same problem.
I have tried to turn off OCR, same problem.
Oddly, this is not a problem with a minority of the PDFs that I have tried - some convert properly.
Please help. I don't understand why this is such a big problem. I would imagine that even the most basic OCR program would be able to recognize the text in the original PDFs and create a reasonable word document output. (In fact, I just tried a free online OCR program and it converted the text without a problem).
I was able to replicate the issue at my end.
It seems to me that the issue is with the way the pdf has been created.
Pdf file is created through third party software.
