I use Acrobat to export pdf files to word in order to translate the text from German to English retaining the format. Frequently these PDF files include all embedded graphics or images. I have included two attachments One that shows the original pdf file and the export where the Docx file shows only 3 of the 7 graphics included either fully or partially. I tried the cloud version where I uploaded the pdf to the cloud. it was better but not perfect.

Is there a way to export pdf files to word and force them to include all graphics?

 

I look forward to your reply

Try exporting using the Acrobat icon in the ribbon rather than from the Microsoft application.

We have good success with this method:

  • From Acrobat, select File / Save As /
  • Choose Word Document (*.docx) from the Save As Type drop-down menu.

 

It should replicate your layout as best as possible and retain all the graphics.

Thank you Bevi, but that is the way I did the document I attached. It is just that saving as a *.docx file is inconsistant. I was hoping there was a method that forced acrobat to recognize graphics more accurately. Thank you for reaching out.
