Regarding converting graphics to tables,
Your first advice was correct. Start retyping.
I suppose there might be some elaborate OCR process you could run that
might convert some of your object to text/table, but I have played
around with this stuff in the past and it doesn't work very well. Typing
ends up being faster.
