Talking PDF-->Doc Freeware Converter?

Hi everyone,

I've been looking forever on google and cannot find a program that is free to convert a 2.7MB PDF file to DOC.

If anyone has any ideas on a program that WILL NOT limit the amount of pages to be converted I would be really grateful (+rep )

Thank you!

Cant you just change the ending code...Go to tools, and then have it show the code...For exmaple...If its a mp3 file, it shows up as "99 problems.mp3" then you just change the ".mp3" to watver you want..But it would work better for a pdf to doc...Try it out.

I know this is not what you want, but PDF Creator will convert DOC to PDF.

But for PDF to DOC:

http://www.solidpdf.com/

http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/U..._Download.html

http://www.etrusoft.com/pdf-to-word-html/

Not sure if they are free though, but they came from a search with a query of "free pdf to word" so i guess so.

another way to do it is open up the PDF file in acrobat and then use a mircrosoft image printer to save it to a picture file (.mdi - microsoft document image).
then that opens a program as if it's been scanned...
then you can use the OCR capabilities of that program to get all the text and then tell it to import it into word...

(assuming you already have office) and assuming that you installed the microsoft document image printer (most likely when installing office).
this is free cause you already have the tools to do it!
