How to Convert PDF Files to Microsoft Word

Files (RTFs)

This help sheet is for Local Authorities only and has been produced to assist those Authorities who wish to
edit our existing user documentation using a Word Processor.

NOTE: Before converting any PDFs, you must ensure that you have signed and returned a copy of our
Reproduction Agreement. To request a copy, please email publications@capita.co.uk. In addition, you
should ensure that you follow our Reproduction Guidelines, a copy of which can be obtained from the same
email address.

You must have purchased a copy of Adobe Acrobat Professional (or similar product capable of saving PDFs
as RTF files). The examples used in this help sheet show Abode Acrobat Professional version 7 being used
to convert the Managing Students in SIMS .net handbook (STUDENTS.PDF) to an RTF file.

Converting PDF files to RTFs

1. Open Adobe Acrobat Professional.
