I''ve tried the following applications: Pit Stop, from EnFocus; Corel Draw 9;
Deneba Canvas 6; Adobe Illustrator 8.0; Macroimedia Freehand 8, and
Adobe Acrobat 4.0.

I recommend Acrobat.

After opening the .PDF file, copy all text, page by page, using the Text tool,
and use "Edit", "Paste Special", "Formatted Text", to paste the text from the
clipboard into a new Word document.

Copy all columnar text using the columnar text tool, and paste using the
above sequence.

Copy all tables using the table tool, and paste as above.

Adobe Illustrator is too labor intensive in that it seems to treat each
page as a separate file, and often hiccups at a crucial point.

The other applications present problems with fonts, inter alia.

Does anyone know how to take a PDF file and turn it back into a Word file
(or at least an .rtf or .txt file)?

The original Word files that were used to create the PDF documents were
lost, and we don't want to retype all of them.

Thanks for your help in advance! Please respond to me off the email list.
