"Recently picked up a project to update the manuals for a retooled assembly
line in a manufacturing plant. The only copy of the original manual is in
Adobe Acrobat. There are over 10k pages with graphics. Are there any apps
out there that will relatively easily/painlessly convert the .pdf files back
into Word? I know doing it in Framemaker would be easier but right now the
cost puts it out of my reach."


Try this link.

I don't use this tool personally but my boss does frequently and swares by
it. I have seen the output and, amazingly, the formatting in the RTF output
is a almost perfect match to the original PDF. The tool is called pdf2word.
The cost is ~$40 so it isn't too pricey. HTH.
