One needs to remember that when a person sends a *.pdf file, it usually means that its contents were not altered during the transmission between the sender and the recipient. However, for the content to be transferred and used in another format, then it must be converted from the *.pdf format to whatever format that is desired, particularly when some editing of the original *.pdf content might be required. The answer is yes. At some point in time, an user might need to convert a *.pdf file to Microsoft Word *.doc (or *.docx), Microsoft Excel *.xls or *csv, etc. If the export option with the converter or translator is not present in Word To Pdf Conversion , then a third-party converter will need to be acquired.
