Default Windows PDF files

I know you can convert text to PDF files but is there a software tool where one can convert PDF to text?

I believe even the "free" version of Adobe Acrobat has the ability
to "copy" the file to the clipboard and then open in wordpad which
should allow you to save as txt-fine for small stuff....

For larger jobs, maybe this will work.....

The full version of Adobe Acrobat can achieve said task.

I don't have openoffice. but I assume after you open the file you click save as and then save it as a .doc file

I have paperport 9 and adobe full version and it does it like this

PDF Re-Direct (http://www.download.com/PDF-ReDirect...ml?tag=lst-0-1)

The program shows up as a printer, so you can 'print' anything, including text, to a PDF file.
