I need to transfer a large number of forms from PDF to Word because that's the only format I'm able to submit it in. The forms are filled in with handwriting. I do NOT need to edit the handwriting.
I'm finding that the conversions have accepted some handwriting, and just had it as a sort of image, not altering it from the handwritten form at all. This is great.
However, the program tries to convert some handwriting, and ends up substituting a load of random symbols or letters.
I wondered if anyone knows of a way to tell the converter to just...chill out, and do ALL of the handwriting as uneditable.
To be frank, the whole document could be a massive image and that works, as long as it's saved as a Word document. (ffs..)
Thanks to anyone who can help.
Two steps will get it done. With Acrobat - PDF content exported to image file format. With MS Word - import/inset the image files.
(Edit) Another option - Print PDF, scan the paper with the scanner output image going into an MS Word file.
Thank you, I can indeed scan as an image, then just put that in word, which saves a few steps. Thanks!
