    Converting handwriting from PDF to Word- substitution of incorrect symbols

    jessicab35934892

      Hi,

       

      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.
