Do you have a file in PDF format but can’t edit it? No problem. There are many free tools that allow you to convert it into a document readable by Word, copying text and images. In some cases the result may not be excellent, especially if the source file has been scanned. Here are five usable tools.
Foxyutils is an online tool that offers many options for converting and editing, such as merging or splitting, of Pdf files.

It does not use the OCR system, which allows the optical character recognition necessary in case you have scanned files.
