Work with Editable Word Documents


After you download your Word document from the PDF2WORD tool, you can open it using Word or any other text editor to modify your document. For instance, Mac users can use Pages to edit Word documents.

Speaking of Mac, our online tool is accessible from any operating system. Whether you’re a Windows, Mac, Linux, or another operating system user, you can always access our website via your go-to web browser.

Reverse the PDF2WORD Converter’s Work


Of course, once you’re done working with your Word file, you’ll likely want to convert it back to PDF. This is important, especially when you want to share your work with others. After all, you want them to read, not write. Word files don’t have a read-only mode, and anyone can amend your document. The PDF format, on the other hand, protects the content from editing. So, to prevent them from making any changes to your file, it’s best to convert the Word document back to PDF.

Most text editors should give you the option to save a Word document as a PDF. Usually, all you have to do is choose the “Save As” feature and then pick PDF from a drop-down list of available formats.

If you don’t see this option, Smallpdf has your back. You can head over to our WORD2PDF tool to save your Word files to PDF format.

Avid Smallpdf users with a Pro subscription can even convert multiple files to and from PDF and Word formats in one go. To do this, simply drag and drop all the files you want to convert into the drop area. Sit back and let us do the heavy lifting. Remember to download the result files, which we’ll conveniently place in one Zip file—if you convert 50 documents, you won’t have to hit the download button 50 times. You can try Smallpdf Pro for free with our 7-day free trial to check our batch processing.
