Hi everybody!

Yes I know, one more question about pdf conversion!

Well, the fact is that I had a word doc that I proofread for a friend of mine and then converted into a pdf because he had a problem to receive word docs by e-mails.
So I sent him the PDF and said I would bring him a word version when we meet and now I realise I didn't keep the original word doc! yes, I know, I am stupid...

I've tried to make the word doc again from the pdf but it's very messy as regards the footnotes and the styles I had used... Is there some trick to avoid loosing this type of links?

Thank you!

Let him send you the original file May 26, 2005

and do the proofreading again, with the help of the pdf-file.
Using Abbyy finreader though you would get a word-file, that looks exactly like the original, but the formatting of course is different.

if the document had been shorter...... May 26, 2005

Dear Heinrich Pesch :

I would love to do that but the original is 244 pages. It is written by a foreign student and it is more rewriting than proofreading! I know this student so it's not so bad...I mean that he can wait a little. It is also better that I keep the text and do the formating again than the contrary. I was wonderinf if there was a way.....

I could find about 165 pages that were proofread and in word format (the first part I had proofread and that was left on my PC). Someone advised me to use solid Converter on the French Forum. I started to "recover" the other pages with it and it's not so bad!

Of course, if the text had been shorter, I would also have simply re-proofread it!

Thank you Heinrich!

Christine
