How to Undo a PDF Document & Save As a Word Document
Save a PDF File as a Word Document. (word appointment image by Franc Podgor...¡ek from Fotolia.com)

A PDF file is like a final printed copy. Once a Word file is converted to a PDF file, the texts in the PDF file cannot be edited. To edit the texts in the PDF file, you will have to edit the original Word file and convert it again, overwriting the old PDF file with the new one. In cases where the original Word file has been moved or deleted, being able to convert a PDF file back to a Word file is very convenient and saves time.
