From looking at other forum posts here, I've found the action wizard, and added the folder I wanted to modify. However, I don't see any way to export from PDF to Word. Only JPEG, PNG, and TIFF show up as export options.
Other threads on this forum have been little help; all the ones I've found just culminated in the advice "Use the Action Wizard" but nothing about how to actually get the Action Wizard to convert specifically from PDF to Word. I don't see any such option. So how do I actually get this folder of PDFs to batch export/convert to Word?
Click the Save command on the left, and then press the button in the middle with the arrow pointing to the right to add it to your Action. Then click it and press Specify Settings underneath it, and you'll see these options.
