You can export or convert one or more PDFs to different file formats, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The available formats include both text and image formats. (For a full list of conversion options, see File format options.)
You cannot export PDF Portfolios, or PDFs within them, to other file formats.

Choose File > Save As Other > More Options to access additional export options, such as Plain Text, Rich Text Format, and Accessible Text.
When you save a PDF in an image format, each page is saved as a separate file.
By default, the source filename is used with the new extension, and the exported file is saved in the same folder as the source file.
When you save a PDF in an image format, each page is saved as a separate file, and each filename is appended with the page number.
You can configure conversion options before you save the file. By default, the conversion options specified under Preferences are used.
- Choose Acrobat > Preferences > Convert From PDF.
- Choose a format from the Converting From PDF List, and then click Edit Settings.
- Choose the conversion settings, and then click OK.
In addition to saving every page (all text, images, and vector objects on a page) to an image format using the File > Save As Other command, you can export each image in a PDF to an image format.
You can export raster images, but not vector objects.
If you need just a part of the PDF file in another format, you don’t need to convert the entire file and then extract the relevant content. You can select text in a PDF file and save it in one of the supported formats: DOCX, DOC, XLSX, RTF, XML, HTML, or CSV.
