Hi there,

When converting PDF (which has been scanned)  to Excel or Word the conversion is garbled .

I used Windows 10.

Ahmed

Hello Ahmed,

Please contact the PDF producer, or if possible share the source file, as it seems to be a font issue in the current scanned PDF.

Regards,

Anand Sri.

Hello Ahmed,

As per the description above, you are getting a garbled Excel or Word after conversion, Is that correct?

Please refer to the following KB doc which discusses the similar issue Text is garbled in converted file | ExportPDF

Try exporting the PDF file through the URL https://cloud.acrobat.com/exportpdf with your Adobe ID and password on a browser like Chrome, or Firefox, or Safari and see if this brings any difference.

Have you tried exporting a non-scanned PDF file? Try exporting any other PDF file.

Let us know how it goes and share your findings.

Regards,

Anand Sri.

Dear Ananda,

I'm afraid I've tried for both word and excel conversion but still I've got the same, i.e. garbled.

See attached.

Hi Anand,

There are many PDF files that I want to convert and I did not have any problem before!

Also, I'm not sure how to send a secured private message with attachment as mentioned below.
