I stumbled across a great site called Zamzar which offers to convert music, video, image and document files from almost any format to almost any format for free (but a donation is appreciated).
I converted a 4 page pdf to an editable Word document and received the notification by email almost instantly. That totally eliminated the need to cut and paste the sections I wanted.
You’ll be pleased to know that the file that you submitted for conversion is now available for download from Zamzar – all files will be stored for 1 day from receipt of this mail. Thanks for converting with us !
