I can not open a file that has been converted from a PDF to a .doc.  I have a one year subscription to PDF Pack.

I click on the tool to convert my pdf file to a .doc file.  When the program writes it is finished and I can down load the document, I do so.  Even though the converted file is listed as a .doc or docx, neither Microsoft Word nor OpenOffice can open it.  What is going wrong?
I also click to be able to edit my pdf document, but no commands to edit it come up.  Am I doing something wrong?

Hi ktewksbu,
I don't think you're doing anything wrong. What is the file size of the converted document (and the filename extension)? Do you have the same issue with any file that you try to convert? Or is the problem specific to one file?
As for editing a PDF file, that requires Acrobat. (Adobe Reader lets you comment on a PDF, but  not alter its content).
Best,
Sara

    Cannot open the Pages file on my computer that has been transferred from my iPad. Do I need to purchase Pages for my computer?

    I guess you could open it using the icloud version of Pages (on www.icloud.com).

    Do you have a backup of your iPhone?   If so, do a restore and whatever Notes were backed up should reappear.
    You will lose any changes made since that backup though.

  • I cannot and never have been, able to open a file that has been previously saved to hard disk by choosing the print to file option in the print dialogue box

    '''I cannot and never have been, able to open a file that has been previously saved to hard disk by choosing the print to file option in the print dialogue box. Firefox displays gooblygook even though the file name is an html, Windows Notepad crashes, MS Excel does not recognise the file type. MS Word displays goobblys also when the file has no filename extension.'''

    If you use print to file then you get a file that is meant to be send to a printer and that file has all kind of formatting code for that specific printer.
    Opening such a file in Firefox or a text editor can only work if you use a text only printer to print the file to, so make sure that such a printer is installed and selected.

    PDF files cannot be natively opened in InDesign. They can only be placed as graphics.

  • I do not get a readable or editable PDF file that has been converted to Microsoft Word.

    In the past I have been able to convert PDF files to MicroSoft Word, and Edit and Save the Documents. Now, the converted files are unreadable and uneditable. How do I correct this problem?

    Thanks for the email, Stacy!
    I don't have an old PDF file that I converted to MicroSoft Word, however the new file that I am trying to convert and edit is the same kind of file that I've converted and edited before; An Invoice from the same Company. Is there a possibility that a download, MicroSoft Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office System, onto MicroSoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 computer might be causing the problem? Should I download to (.doc) or (.docx)? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,

    Hi Joseph,
    I'd like to assist!
    Have you tried converting one of your old PDF's that have worked in the past to see if it still works?
    Are these files scanned to PDF files?
    You may want to try utilizing the OCR solution.
    Let me know if that works.
    Looking forward to hearing back from you!
    Kind regards, Stacy

    That's a question only the provider of the application can answer.
    You could also take a look into the system event log if there is an indication for the reason of the application failing to start properly. It is possible that certain services are required for the application, but they do not run on the machine.
    Another point is possibly missing rights. So you might want to test the application once with the option "Run as Admin" (right click menu item on the application shortcut or the exe itself).

  • How can I open a project that has been created with Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration software, on my trial version of Premier Pro CC?

    Hi,
    I'm working with a colleague who is using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration software on his PC version of Premier Pro CC. I am using a mac and have a trial version of Premier Pro CC. When I try to open a project file that he has sent me I get an error message-
    "Missing renderer: This project was last used with Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA), which is either not available or not certified on this system. Mercury Playback Engine Software Only will be used."
    When I click OK and locate the files I get a message saying "File format not supported".
    Can anyone tell me what to do so that we can share project files?
    Many thanks,
    Jessie

    Shouldn't really be the MPE at fault here ... what is the codec of the footage/sequence/project?
    Second, can you create a new project in PrPro, then in the media browser, import that sequence from the other project?

  • Can not open safari because it has been close unexpectedly.....

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the crashed process. The report name starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report — they're very long and not helpful.

  • Can not open rpt file that I created in CR2011

  • Can you restore a user file that has been deleted from the home folder?

    Unfortunate series of events happened because of a wacky Mavericks install. I'm pretty sure the answer is no.

    If you have a backup, yes. If not, no - unless to get some data recovery software or service ($$) which may or may not be able to recover anything.

  • Printing a PDF file that has been exported from InDesign

    Hello! I exported a file from InDEsign to a PDF, but the entire document doesn't print... it get's cut off 3/4 down the way. My page size in InDesign is 5in x 7in and so is my page set-up in PDF when I go to print but it still gets cut-off.

    The physical paper you're printing onto - is it  5 x 7 or lettersize/A4
    If you are printing 5 x 7 image area to a 5 x 7 sheet of paper, you would need a printer capable of boarderless printing. In general, no printing equipment can print to the edges of a sheet, and all vary by different amounts; inkjets having the largest non-print area.
