Hey

 

Don't have it - but I do know that using it in this way violates the EULA. You might find someone to do it for you despite the breakage of the EULA.

 

However, if you contact them they might be able to do a one-off for a small fee.

To be honest - I do genuinely feel it's best to start this again from the beginning.

You can extract all the images from the PDF very easily using Adobe Acrobat.

And you save the entire File to a Word File

 

You can then reflow the entire document to InDesign.

In my opinion - you'll get a much better finish and less room for error.

 

It's only 130 pages - it would not take long at all.

 

---

I do feel if you did get a converted file - I think there would be a lot of clean up involved.

100% agree with @Eugene Tyson's suggestion.

Export the PDF to Word. It will give you all of the graphics and text, which you can then place into InDesign.

 

We do this type of work for our clients and found that there was so much code crud left in the file if you try to convert it to InDesign. They clean up is more than you can imagine.

Markzware has a document conversion service that can do that for you for a fee. The fee varies depending on the size of the document, but its worth exploring. they have done one-offs for me when I've had some large Publisher files thrown at me. Saved me hours and hours of rebuilding.
