There is a program, Aerial, which can convert a PDF file to RTF. It can then
be opened in Word for editing. The program is available from www.ambia.com.
It generally works very well, except on multi-column formats.

One of my clients heard indirectly that it's possible to scan document into
PDF format then later convert it to an editable Word file. This sounds
dubious to me. True? Not true? How does it work if true?
