I'm simply trying to convert this pdf to HTML for a newletter:

Here's a screenshot of what happens after exporting from Acrobat:

I have the whole CC suite-- I tried embedding, expanding text, saving in different formats, etc. What am I missing?

Hey cdmaze,

 

Quick and easy... open this PDF with Acrobat and select "File" ---> "Export to" ---> Select TIFF image.

 

Open this TIFF file directly in Acrobat and repeat step above but this time select  the "Export to HTML."

 

When the conversion and optimization is done it will open up in your default web browser like shown in my image below:

I just love the possibility of things you can do in Acrobat by the way.

Me too- but it's still jumbled-- I'm sure this is my error. It's my first time trying to convert to HTML for newsletter at work. 

 

Could it be my brower? I'm on chrome...

No I am using Chrome as well and tested it in the new MS Edge and other brwsers that are Chrome-based. 

 

I literally used the same PDF you just shared.

 

But I do configure my Acrobat preferences differently and I always right-click on the opened document, select document properties , and then tick the radio button "Use Document Structure"

 

This is how I have my export settings configured:

My PDF also looks awful when I convert to HTML. This advice would be great if I had a one page PDF! What if I have several pages? Is there any way to convert multiple TIFFS into one HTML page?
