    I think koffice can do something like that, but I don't know how well. pdf is not meant for that.

    There are a number of utilities for converting pdf to text, html, etc in the repositories.

    I'm at work at the moment, so I'm afraid I can't be specific, but if you do a search for pdf in Synaptic you should find them.

    Which version of Open Office are you using? Being able to edit pdf files is supposed to be one of the big developments in Open Office 3.

    I've tested the Open Office .pdf import feature, it works but it's crazy slow (probably because it's hell of a process). Even though it was slow, It worked.

    Check...check check check...check it out! (ummm...click on that...)

    The import extension is in synaptic. The pdf gets imported into OO Draw.

    open office 3 pdf conversion is the best ive come accross, although im no expert. its nicer than inkscape or pdf to html conversions but yes, it is indeed slow. there'll be a way to automate a batch of them and leave it running for a while

    I did a little searching and found this:-

    It appears as though it might be what you want but I haven't tried it out myself.

    Hope it helps you.

    Re: how to convert pdf to word

    Some PDF's are text based and easy to convert others are graphics.

    Some alternatives:
    man page pdftotext

    sudo apt-get install poppler-utils
    pdftotext {PDF-file} {text-file}

    Or try this (you need pdfimages, imagemagick and, of course, tesseract):

    pdfimages -j {PDF-file} {text-file}
    for i in *.pbm; do convert $i $i.tif; tesseract $i.tif $i; done
