How to Copy and Paste a PDF into Word

In a previous article on how to copy and paste without being caught and copy and paste without changing formatting, I explained in detail about important points related to copy and paste.

Although these tricks were included in that article, I will explain them again and add some other methods that have not been mentioned.

Let’s see what the methods are.

1. Copy and Paste via Notepad

The first method often used by people is to first copy the text to Notepad and then copy it to MS Word.

Notepad is a basic text editor application that doesn’t have any formatting. So, any unique text placed in Notepad will lose its formatting instantly.

Therefore, the first tip to follow is first to copy the text to Notepad.

Here’s how:

1. Open Notepad by Clicking Start ⇒ Type “Notepad” ⇒ Enter

2. Copy the text from the PDF to the Notepad application

3. Copy the text again from Notepad to MS Word

4. Done

2. Copy and Paste via Google Search

The second way to copy and paste a PDF into Word neatly is almost the same as number 1, but we use Google Search to do it.

This method is also intended to remove any remaining text formatting in the copied text to make it neat.

4. Convert PDF File to Doc

This method may or may not work, but it’s worth trying. You can convert it using special software or online tools.

With this method, you don’t need to copy and paste the text from the PDF to MS Word, you need to convert the file.

Since I’ve already explained this method in another article, for those of you who want to know more, please read how to convert PDF files to Doc.

5. Copy and Paste a PDF into Word Using Save As Text

The fifth method may not be well-known, but it’s very effective for copying and pasting from PDF to Word neatly and without mess.

The requirement is that you need to install Adobe Reader. This application is used to open PDF files, just like other applications.

However, Adobe Reader has more features than other applications. So, I recommend using Adobe Reader here.

Important: When downloading, it’s best to uncheck the following:

  • Install the Acrobat Reader Chrome Extension
  • Yes, install the free McAfee Security Scan Plus utility to check the status of my PC security. It will not modify existing antivirus programs or PC settings, and
  • Yes, install McAfee Safe Connect to keep my online activities and personal info private and secure with a single tap.

Conclusion About How to Copy Paste From PDF to Word

However, PDF files have a different format from MS Word, so some texts cannot be automatically formatted neatly and must be done manually.

For example, the layout of paragraphs that are not neat and do not merge with other paragraphs.

All of this also depends on how the author arranges the pages of the PDF file.

Some intentionally press enter when they reach the page limit, while others just add spaces.

So, if the author presses enter before finishing the paragraph, we must edit it manually to merge it with the relevant paragraph.

So, that’s the article on how to copy and paste PDF to Word neatly and without mess. Hopefully, it’s useful, good luck, and hope it works.
