I have a document that was originally a PDF document, converted to a WORD document. While I continue to edit the WORD document there are purple text boxes throughout my document that I cannot get rid of. I would like to delete them but can't get rid of them.

Hi,

 

If I guessed it correctly, the purple boxes you are referring here are the editable form fields Which were probably created in Adobe Acrobat.

To be able to edit them you need to go into Prepare Form mode of Adobe Acrobat DC. Converting a PDF to Word file would not let you to remove/delete those form fields, because its not just text or regular text boxes. Also, the document properties 

 

It would be more accurate if you could share the screenshot of the boxes. 

 

Check this document to understand more about PDF forms: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/pdf-form-field-basics.html#delete_a_form_field

 

Thanks,

Akanchha
