How do I convert just the text in my PDF to Excel or Word WITHOUT bounding boxes?

The bounding boxes are constraining my data and preventing me from manipulating the data/text in Excel or Word as one normally would. Hope that makes sense. Thank you!

Hi, 

 

I am not sure entirely what you are trying to do, but would using "Export To-> Text " help?

Hi BarlaeDC, unfortunately not because all formatting is lost then. Unless I'm (totally!) misremembering, I seem to recall being able to 'Save As' PDFs and in Word, tables would save as tables, text as text and in Excel data would populate cells accordingly. With 'Export To' or 'Save As', all the data/text in my PDF looks to be saved in (MS) text boxes. Hope that makes more sense 😃 Thanks again!
