The New Microsoft Office 2013 brings lot of new features and enhancements over its earlier versions, one of them is ability to edit PDF files directly in Word 2013. No extra plugins or expensive PDF to Doc converters are required anymore. PDF editing can be done by just opening the PDF file in MS Office 2013. Yes, it’s that easy!!
There are many .doc to .pdf converter (and vice versa) software available which does the same job in earlier version of Microsoft Office but they all suffer from same problem: Formatting issues. The same problem has also not been completely eliminated in Microsoft Office 2013. Hence, it would be most appropriate to use text based PDF files for this conversion.
How To Edit PDF files in Microsoft Office 2013
- Open MS Word 2013.
- Select Open -> Browse to your PDF file
- You will get a notification that PDF to Doc conversion is going to take place. Click OK
That’s it. Your document is successfully imported to word format. You can edit and modify the file as per your need. After the required changes, you can save the file in PDF or Doc format.
While saving the document, use “Save As Type” as PDF or .Docx in Office 2013.
