Hello. I need to count the words from a 30 pages long document, which is in PDF. It's an article from an e-book and it does not allow me to copy-paste into Word in order to do that, like I usually do. Any ideas?

It is password protected or anyway protected.. Jun 14, 2005

Hi,

Check with CTRL+D: you'll see what you can do with that PDF. Even an OCR program such us FineReader can't convert a PDF into a MS Word file, if the file is protected. You'll have to ask your client for the password or for a copy with option copy enabled.
