This tutorial will show you how to convert a PDF file to an editable document for free. First, when you try to direct edit a PDF file, you’re prompted to purchase the PDF editor from Adobe. In order to get around this I recommend downloading the Libre Office Suite. This is a completely free program and comes with all kinds of goodies.
How To Convert A PDF in Libre Office
After you have downloaded the Libre Office Suite open up the Draw program. Then go to file, open, then find your PDF document. After you open it up, you see it is totally editable. It also keeps the formatting for you. 🙂
How to Convert A PDF in Google Drive
Upload your PDF to Google Drive. After you upload it, then open it with Google Docs. You can either edit it right there or you can download it as a Microsoft Word document. Just go to file, download as and then save it to your computer. Your done!
Alternative Methods to Change A PDF to An Editable Document
- Use the Adobe online conversion tool to Word.
- Use PDF to go online converter.
- Or you can use the PDF filler converter.
Libre Office Suite
The Libre Office Suite has everything that you will need. There is a host of programs that come in the download. There is the writer, Draw, Database and more. I recommend this program and have blogged about it for several years now. I like it better than Microsoft because it does everything I need it to. It just doesn’t make sense to purchase something when I get Libre for free. Here are some of my tutorials on Libre Office.
