Valuable Guide on Editing PDF in Word

PDF or Portable Document Format is the standard for all types of documents all over the digital world. Every time someone says that he or she is sending you an important document, you can bet on the fact that it will be in the PDF format- unless the sender does not really consider it as important! PDF files give you a range of advantages that other file formats do not- including security, better formatting, digitally signing documents and a lot more.

However, one major disadvantage with PDF files is that they cannot be edited directly. You cannot edit a PDF in Adobe Reader or any other viewer that you use for it. However- there are other ways to do that. This is one of the reasons as to why people convert PDF files into Word documents- you get the flexibility of editing and modifying the document. Let us go ahead and see the methods that exist for doing that.

Online Utility Available on PDFOnline

PDF Online is one of the most known names when it comes to converting PDF document to Word file or vice versa. This is one of the simplest approaches out there- and you do not have to perform any complicated installs, setups or other maneuvers. To convert a PDF file to Word using PDF Online, follow the steps as highlighted ahead:

1. Go to www.pdfonline.com, and click on the tab that says “PDF to Word Online”.

2. Click on the “Upload a File to Convert” option, and then browse and upload the PDF document that you are trying to convert.

3. Depending on the size of the file that you uploaded, the conversion will be done within a few seconds or some minutes. Once done, download and save it to your PC. You can also choose to receive the converted file on your email.

While this is a short and simplified procedure, it becomes somewhat lengthy if you are trying to edit a PDF file. First, you have to convert it to Word by following the above steps. Once the conversion is done, make the edits as desired. After that, you have to again convert the Word file back to PDF by following the same steps, with the only change being that this time, you have to select the tab that says “Word to PDF”.


– It is very easy to use- with just 3 simple steps, you can convert the file to Word and edit it.

– No downloads are required- the tool can be used online by visiting the website.
