You can only do that if you paid version of the Acrobatic Reader, otherwise it is just a read only thing. You can do a "SELECT" and COPY(cntl-C) and paste into Notepad to save a text file though.

Then you can copy the text file and paste it into Word.

thanks that does work,
but it doesn't copy the images.

If you have Adobe Illustrator you can "take apart" PDF's, extract the different elements (C&P text and extract images) or just edit them.

The whole point of Acrobat and .pdf files was to create a virtual 'sheet of paper' document that couldn't be edited except by the originator.

I think it was more to produce a document that would have consistent format and appearance across any variety of platforms, independant of what operating system or application software you use.
