I have a huge pdf file made up of scanned images.
I wish to edit them either in Acrobat or in Word.
Problem is I cannot edit in Acrobat, because using OCR (Optimal Character Recognition) feature disorients the formatting completely.
And converting scanned pdf to MS Word also does the same.
Please suggest what I can do to either:
1. Edit easily in Acrobat itself, without losing the formatting or signatures or images, etc.
2. Convert to Word for the editing, without losing both the images and text or their formatting.
PDF files formats have been designed so that no one can edit or modify them, that is the whole principle behind it. For instance, if I would not want someone to modify, copy, edit or falsify my resume, I would convert it to PDF.
Sorry, but there is not solution for your issue except, if you can to redo the entire document or get the original.
