PDF to Word conversion particularities
I recently needed to convert some fairly complex (i.e. with tables, images) pdfs to word documents. The conversion went OK but a large number of the images held within tables were not visible and the ones that were visible were not selectable.
Upon doing some research, I found out that the unselectable images (vector images perhaps) could be selected if you went to home> select > select objects ( Click on the pic ).
From there it was simply a matter of right-click > Format Object > Layout > In Front of text.
In order to avoid having to select all the objects on each page (you can't select across pages) you can select them all by:
You can make use of the Select Multiple Objects command, which opens a dialog box that easily allows you to select objects. In Word 2007, you can add this command to the Quick Access Toolbar.
