I downloaded a scholarship application with Adobe. I does not allow me to fill in any of the required information. I would like to convert this PDF document to a Microsoft Word document so I can complete the application. I tried copy and paste but I must not be doing it correctly. I was unable or maybe I am doing it incorrectly. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!

If an organisation provides a PDF that cannot be filled in electronically, IMO that probably indicates they wish application forms to be printed out, filled in by hand and posted. Some places still like to see actual human handwriting...

I think you need Advanced PDF Converter as it is very good at preserving the formatting, with text content, page layouts, images,and text hyperlinks preserved.It also allow us to convert a lot files at the same time. I am now using it.

I use PDF X-Change Viewer as my PDF viewer. It allows you to place text boxes anywhere of a PDF. I use it often to fill out forms that don't have their own input areas.
