Does anyone have access to one of those utils that can extract a pdf out to a Word document?

If so, mind if I email you a file to convert?

Yes, and it isn't pretty ... but I think I will just circumvent the problem and simply list the errors. I will force someone else to go correct them.

That's probably the best approach, as exported text will likely look just as messy. Remember, PDF is a final, not-meant-to-be-changed format, not an editing format.

E-mail it to me and I'll give it a go. Can't guarantee anything - never tried it before. [email protected]

You will be better off doing a copy and paste.
