Edit PDF & # 39; s in Microsoft Word has become much easier since Microsoft has built more functionality, starting with Word 2016. His cousin Edge Browser also has impressive PDF capabilities.
Though you a full can not beat PDF editor for complex work, Word now has the ability to create PDF & # 39; s open and edit (although with some formatting issues). So it all works:
Import, export and edit PDF & # 39; s in Microsoft Word  first. Open Word 2016. Select File> Open then browse to the folder containing your PDFs. Select a file and click the Open button. Note that the selected file appears in the View window on the right. For this example, select a file with text and images.
2. Once you click Open the following dialog box will be displayed:
NOTE: the message warns that the loading of large files takes longer and that the layout in Word may not look exactly the same as the original PDF. That's because margins, columns, tables, page breaks, footnotes, endnotes, frames, track changes and special format options including (among others) font effects may differ between the original software used to create the PDF file (such as InDesign or Microsoft Publisher) and Word.
Microsoft suggests that text documents be transferred and reflowed better than documents heavily loaded with charts and graphics, tags, bookmarks, footnotes and / or track changes. These additional text blocks often end up in the middle of paragraphs or are tagged at the end. Keep these limitations in mind so you can plan the result and make adjustments as needed.
However, many of the formatting features are compatible and can be transferred directly from PDF to Word without any problem. For example, the following image is a copy of the original PDF that we opened in Word.
Modify PDFs in Word
You can easily add new paragraphs and edit and delete data, and the document is reformatted automatically as you type. You can even delete the images, replace or move, and text wrap feature herwikkelt the paragraph & # 39; s around the image at the new location. You can also change the page size, margins, line spacing, font and font size plus all font attributes and change many more.
In the "edited" version of this document, the font and font size in the title, subtitle, first and last paragraphs have all been changed. In addition, the yellow paragraph was added and the image was moved from top right to bottom left without any problem.
In fact, Word's PDF compatibility is now so good that you can right click on the image and full list with editable graphics options, including cropping, resizing, formatting, positioning, adding captions and even adding hyperlinks.
With all these new features, you can now use Word as a desktop publisher, save the finished product as a compiled / condensed PDF and then directly send to printer for mass production. This is a real plus for small offices and home businesses that can not afford to buy another software program for each special function that occurs.
The real advantage for all others is the ease of copying data from one document to another, previously created in incompatible file formats. PDF & # 39; s are smaller, easier to email and much more efficient to print, because the format is portable. All necessary elements to produce the final product are collected in one file.
The downside of Word's Reflow feature is that some companies use the PDF format to ensure some degree of copyright protection on the documents they distribute. There is also a solution for these groups. Protect the document with a password in Acrobat for read-only so that the file cannot be copied or converted.
Save or export a Word document to PDF
1. Once the document has been satisfactorily changed, choose File> Save As navigate to the correct folder, and then choose PDF from the Save as type drop-down list.
3. Another option for saving or resaving a document as a PDF file is to export it. Choose File> Export select Create PDF / XPS Document in the left column, then click the button of the same name.
4. Again, the system displays the following screen of the PDF file type. Choose Optimize for standard (online publishing and printing) and check the box for Open file after publication if you want the PDF to open after it has been saved. Then click the button Publishing and made your new PDF.
As your text is moved and rearranged in your new PDF, you may want to choose a relative horizontal and vertical position. This allows the image to move with the text. If you want the absolute image links on page one remains, choose an absolute horizontal and vertical position. You do not guess the place to locate or, simply move the image, and the new position coordinates appear in the box above. All you need to do is to Absolute or Relative to click and then OK .
Once these decisions are made, repeat the above steps to either resave the file or export it again to a new PDF.  Export PDFs from Acrobat to Word
