Subject: Any ideas on saving multiple PDFs as separate Word docs?
I have a series of PDFs (each a chapter of a book created in Flare). The Word output from Flare to Word is not as robust as the client would like.
They need each chapter in the book ALSO as a Word file (for good business reasons, please).
I'm thinking to get the page layout/headers/footers we needs, we could go
Flare->PDF->Word. But the books might have 50 chapters, so opening each
and manually saving to Word isn't a good option.
Anyone have ideas how to get many PDFs to many Word files programmatically?
Same file names, just converted to Word. These Word files don't have to be elegant, but they do need to look like the PDFs.
