Question - is there any way to have Acrobat convert PDFs to Word 2010 or higher? Currently, we have Adobe Acrobat XI version 11.0.21. When we open a PDF and convert it to Word (File -- Save As Other - Word Document) and open it in Word, it opens as a .docx but is in compatibility mode which is causing issues for our workflows. I found that in the properties of the .docx, it is in compatibility mode because it is formatted for Office 2007, instead of Office 2010 and higher. If you open a 2007 .docx in 2010, it will display in compatibility mode. Thanks!
I am not aware of any mechanism that will change the format of the exported MS Office documents. All the options you have available are in Acrobat's Preferences: Go to the "Convert from PDF" section, and then select the appropriate format (e.g. Word Document). You will then see the options available for the selected format.
