With Adobe PDF Pack, you can easily create, combine, sign, and send PDF files online. You can also convert PDF files into editable Word or Excel files. The files create are automatically stored in your PDF Pack account.

Steps to create a PDF

  1. Click Create PDF.

  2. To upload a file from your computer and convert it to PDF, click Convert A File To PDF.

  3. Select a file to convert in the file browser, and then click Open.

Files you create are stored in your Adobe PDF Pack account. The conversion list in the bottom area of the Adobe PDF Pack window lists all the files you’ve converted. You can open, download, or delete files in the conversion list. You can also search for a file you’ve created by entering its name in the search box at the right side of the application window.

Combine files to PDF

Use Combine Files to convert up to ten files to a single PDF. Combine Files supports multiple file types, in addition to PDF files.

Note: You cannot combine PDF files that are secure, password protected, 3D, or part of a PDF Portfolio.

When you use Combine Files, Adobe PDF Pack stores just the combined PDF file, not the files from which it was created.

Steps to combine files into a PDF

  1. Click Combine Files.

  2. Click Select Files to Combine.

  3. Select one of the files that you want to combine.

  4. Click Open.

  5. Click Add Files and select additional files to combine. Click Open.

  6. (Optional) Hover over a file and click the arrow next to the file to change its order in which you want it to appear in the combined PDF.

  7. Enter a name for the combined file, and then click Combine.

Export PDF to Word/Excel

Use Export PDF to Word/Excel to convert PDF files into editable Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel files. Adobe CreatePDF supports optical character recognition, or OCR, when you use Export PDF to Word/Excel.

OCR is the conversion of images of text (scanned text) into editable characters so that you can search, correct, and copy the text.

Adobe PDF Pack performs OCR on PDF files that contain images, vector art, hidden text, or a combination of these elements. (For example, Adobe PDF Pack performs OCR on PDF files created from scanned documents.) Adobe PDF Pack also performs OCR on text that it can't interpret because the text was encoded incorrectly in the source application.

Steps to export PDF

  1. Click Export PDF.

  2. Click Select PDF Files to Export and navigate to the PDF file. Click Continue.

  3. Select the desired file format from the Convert To drop-down menu.

  4. Choose the language of the document you're converting from the pop-up menu. (The language selected by default is the language you've selected in the My Information dialog box.) 
    Note: Adobe PDF Pack does not retain the language setting from session to session. Therefore, make sure that you select the appropriate language each time you convert a document with OCR.

  5. Click Export. The selected PDF file is uploaded to the server and the content is exported to the desired format.

    Click the Download button to save the file on your machine. The copy of the exported file will also be saved on the server for future reference.
