Thanks all for your comments on PDF; hope to have time soon to install adobe 
8, and get started, so might well be back on this one <smile> - Andy

| Andy, just done some Googling on this question and haven't yet come up 
with any
| freeware PDF to Word converters, though plenty of shareware ones, and of 
course
| there is Nuance's offering, but that costs £39.
|
| Some of these can be found at:
|
| http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Best/free-pdf-a-word.html
|
| Might be free to download, but I think all of them are paid for in the 
end.
| Also, if it is freeware you are after, beware getting ad ware or other 
nasties
| along with it.
|
| End by saying that for converting a few pages, with most PDF documents you 
can
| simply highlight pages and copy and paste into MS Word.  Believe it or 
not, the
| pasted text is screen reader readable text.  No idea how and why this 
works, and
| some documents may not allow you to do this if they are protected.  Just 
thought
| you'd like to know this dodge if you aren't already aware of it.

| Hi all - on the subject of PDF and Adobe, I am needing to read quite a 
large
| PDF file, and will be installing Adobe 8 on this machine to do it. Can
| anybody give me some tips as to which settings etc need to be changed for 
it
| to read well with JFW [6.20], or better still, how to convert it to a word
| document for easy navigation? Thanks - Andy
