Short of acrobat, you don't have many choices...

If the pdf is not protected (allows selecting text and graphics - you can
check that by selecting File>Document Info>Security (command may vary
depending upon version)):

Then you can copy and paste using the text selection tool in Acrobat reader.
It is clunky, puts para breaks in at every line end, and you can only do one
page at a time.

However, it does retain is font size and appearance.

Is there a way to convert pdfs to doc (not with acrobat) while
maintaining the formatting or at least most of it? I used
ghostview/script, but i can only convert docs to pdfs.
