I have few questions.
1st. Is there a program that can copy a pdf and paste it to document, that is automated, I know the snapshot tool exists and I can use that but I have roughly 3000 pdfs with 40 to 100 pages each I need to copy to add to my reports.
2nd. If a program doesn't exist then how do I access the Snapshot tool so I can copy the page and paste it into word? I managed to open both the word doc and pdf, but I can't figure out how to access the snapshot tool.
If you had Acrobat you could extract all the pages from each of the files into single page files. If you had a decent DTP program for creating your report, then you could import each page as a separate file with no loss of fidelity. Word on the Mac supports pdf files as graphics, older versions of Word on Windows did not. I am unsure if the latest and greatest version of Word allows the import of pdfs as graphics.
I would not suggest using the snapshot tool since the quality of the graphic would be greatly reduced. If you owned Acrobat you could export the pdf file as a graphic (tiff, png, or jpg) and import those files into Word for Windows, but again the quality of the images would be reduced.
My version of word doesn't support that feature, and unfortunately I can't get it upgraded. That is helpful, but so far I haven't lost any quality yet from the tool when I use it manually. I'm still looking for a faster and more automated way of getting this done as it will take a huge amount of time which I don't have.
