Convert PDFs to DOCX

Convert your PDF document to a Word document. The resulting DOCX file makes editing easy! This tool keeps the formatting of your PDF file (e.g., headings, italic, etc.) and also transfers graphics (e.g., a figure or photo). This tool is best for making a PDF editable. If you are looking for OCR -- which converts pictures of text to editable text -- try our Online OCR Tool.

PDF to .DOCX Convertor that Works!

A DOCX file is the main format used by Microsoft Word. Once your PDF is in DOCX format, you can edit the text and graphics in MS Word and other word processing software.

A+ Grade on Layouts and Formatting!

The SuperTool conversion uses top notch conversion utilities to preserve formatting. Competitors often use open source LibreOffice, which often does not preserver formatting or even convert text! Use SuperTool to keep your data in editable tables, keep those font sizes and colors, and basically keep the layout the same after converting to Word.


Both DOCX and DOC are file formats that work with MS Word and are used for word processing. Simply put, DOCX is newer and better, originating about 2007. DOCX files are typically smaller and the underlying structure of the data is stored as XML. Both DOCX and DOC formats can be read in nearly all typically-used versions of MS Word and other word processing software. SuperTool's PDF to Word converter uses the DOCX format because it is simply an improvement over earlier versions.

DOCX Compatibility

DOCX files created with SuperTool work with the following word processing software:

  • MS Word
  • Microsoft 365
  • Google Docs
  • LibreOffice
  • WordPerfect
  • Writer and more!

.docx is specified by standards organizations. ISO/IEC 29500 and ECMA-376 are some of the relevant standards. Docx is sometimes called Office Open XML.

What to do after your PDF is converted to DOCX?

In DOCX format your PDF file contents are now easily editable. Change any text, change colors, add a paragraph and do any of the hundreds of things you do in Word.

Once your file is in DOCX format, you can convert it to HTML and other formats using MS Word's Save As functionality. You can convert to .doc, .txt, .rtf, xml, and even back to PDF! And clearly, you can save your edited Word file to Word so that you can edit it later or share it with someone else.
