How to Convert PDF to WordPerfect

By Foye Robinson

Corel WordPerfect includes a PDF converter that imports PDF files directly into the program. You can import the original PDF file with or without any formatting into WordPerfect. All pages within the PDF are imported by default. However, you can customize the page range you want to import beforehand. During the conversion, you can also instruct WordPerfect to recognize text on scanned pages automatically, to recognize and extract text from all images, or to not recognize text in images.

Step 1

Start WordPerfect and select "File" and "Open PDF" from the menu.

Step 2

Select and double-click the PDF document you want to convert in the "Open File" dialog box. The "Open PDF Settings" dialog box appears.

Step 3

Choose the import settings you want to apply. To import the PDF without formatting, check "Bring in content from the original PDF without any formatting."

Step 4

Go to the "Text conversion options" section and select how you want the text imported.

Step 5

Select the page range for the PDF, "Full document" and "Pages." To pull specific pages, enter the page numbers under "Pages."

Step 6

Click "Open" to add the PDF to WordPerfect.

Step 7

Select "File" and "Save As" from the menu to save the file. Change the "As type" option to "WordPerfect (*.doc)." Name the file and click "Save."
