How can I convert a .pdf file to an Indesign CC file which is editable?

Hi btacme,
I understand there are some third-party utilities that will allow you to convert a PDF to an InDesign file. But, as PDF is intended to be a final format, Adobe doesn't offer this capability. Are you unable to make the edits that you need by opening the PDF in Acrobat?

    How can I convert a pdf file that's larger than 100MB to word?
    I have just paid $20 to Adobe to get this facility but It won't work ,
    as the pdf is larger than 100MB,
    I actually believe that I have paid twice for adobe but I'll take this up with them,
    in the meantilme,
    do you have any suggestions, I really need this material in word urgently,
    many thanks

    If your files are this large, ExportPDF is the wrong tool for you. You need Adobe Acrobat, which runs locally and does not need to send your files to Adobe.

  • How can you convert multiple PDF files at once to PDF/A-1b files

    I support individuals who on occasion have to submit a mass of files to a court and the requirement is that the files be in PDF/A format. Most are scanned files lacking the requisite structure to become PDF/A-1a files. So as I convert or resave files, I need to be able to specify that they be converted to the PDF/A-1b standard. And since it may involve over 100 files, it would be very inefficient to do so individually, file by file. Could this be done via an Action Wizard sequence? Could a script be written in Java that go through such a process, specifically choosing a PDF/A standard? Any insights would be appreciated.

    PDF/A-1a is very easy to automate in Acrobat XI Pro, indeed the compliance code was rewritten specifically with this in mind. Test Screen Name is correct that PDF/A-1b can't be realistically automated due to the complexity of tagging, but that's not your concern.
    In Acrobat XI Pro, create a new Action with no functional steps in it, then add the Save step.
    Click 'Settings' and change the output format to "Export File(s) to Alternate Format"
    Choose PDF/A from the list. It doesn't say so, but that's A-1b.
    I suggest using the file renaming feature so you're not overwriting the originals (e.g. append "_A1B")
    Save the Action and run it.
    Files with security, distributed forms, etc. can't be converted but the Acrobat engineering team claim that everything which can possibly be shoehorned into PDF/A will always succeed. In previous versions of Acrobat it often failed when it encountered things like iffy XMP data.

  • How can I convert a pdf file to a world file?

    I have been trying for the past hour to export a pdf file so that it can be converted to a word file, and no one seems to
    be of help.

    Dear Sara,
    I renewed my Adobe Account sometime in May 25th, giving my Mastercard number.
    This I did under my email [private information removed]. I was
    told that it was a annual fee. My main object was to be ale to convert pdf files to word
    files. I cannot understand why I do not have an active subscriptionn to ExportPDF. If
    by chance it was construed for some other Adobe service, please have it transferred to
    the ExportPDF.
    At the moment it is most necessary that I can make this conversion, due to a
    deadline.  Most gratefully,  Prof. Israel J. Katz
    P.S. I have a chat record with "Subhabrata" I was told that my payment of !9.95 would
    cover the entire year. I can sent you the chat record for your files.

  • How can I convert a PDF file offline?

    needing help converting pdf's offline

    Hi danac69766799,
    It looks like you purchased the Adobe PDF Pack, which is an online service. If you need to convert offline, then you need Acrobat. I can swap your Adobe PDF Pack subscription for an Acrobat subscription, if you'd like. Please check out this page for information about pricing for Acrobat Pro and Standard: Pricing | Adobe Acrobat XI
    If you'd like to switch, let me know!

  • How can I convert a pdf file containing a scanned document?

    I tried (and paid for) Adobe ExportPdf. It did not work. I get a Word-Document containing huge images. Useless.

    Hello and sorry for the long delay in answering.
    I have tested several pdf files that only contain scanned images.
    I always selected the correct language for text recognition.
    The first I tried was a Spanish document with 13 pages, converting to *.doc. The original had 3162 kB, the newly created Word document has 11836 kB. It contains only images, every page in the PDF document is an image.
    Then I did a German document with only one page, it was converted beautifully into a WORD-Document.
    Same for a Spanish document with only one page, it was converted beautifully into a WORD-Document.
    Then I tried a again Spanish document with 18 pages, converting to *.docx. I took about 10 minutes due to my slow Internet connection. The original has 3807kB, the converted file 6559 kB. The opened converted docx-file is almost empty.
    Is it possible that multiple page documents do no work?
    Would you like to have a look at these documents yourself?
    Thank you and best regards, AlMarsad2013
