I often export my pdf documents to Word.  Our templates are highly customized with layouts and styles and exporting to Word's native template adds quite a bit of work to the process.

When Acrobat exports to Word, what is the name of and where is the template stored that Acrobat is exporting to?

Can I overwrite this and use my own customized template?

Thanks!

It doesn't use any templates. It just exports the file as-is to a Word document.

Hi.

During the export process, it MUST open a Word template in order to copy the text in it.  I'd like to know where that template is located so I can modify or replace it.  It's not using Normal.dotx as I've modified that as well.  It's using a native Word template but I can't locate it.

Or maybe it uses a "template" that's saved in the code of the application, not an actual file, or a library that doesn't rely on templates at all?

Too bad.  It's annoying and causes more work than it's worth.  Why can't they export to an actual usable template?  Hello, Adobe????
