I'm writing here following http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/402407/how-to-convert-pdf-containing-math-made-from-latex-to-word and http://meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/9715/reopening-thread-that-i-dont-think-is-off-topic.
1. My main goal is just to use MathType in Word and to edit with Word. Therefore, what is the best way to convert an Adobe PDF containing math (equations, symbols, tables, etc.) into a Word document?
2. Is there another way to make the PDF appear in Word? I was thinking that maybe the PDF doesn't need to be converted. Instead, each page of the PDF could be convertered/terated as a picture which could then be pasted onto a Word document. This process takes too long to do for each page. What program or recourse is available? Thank you very much!
Unfortunately, it would take too much time for me to retype the PDF, because it is essentially a free textbook containing maths on which I must annotate. Also, I do not have the LaTeX source file for the PDF, only the PDF itself.
I've spent at least 3 hours trying to research and resolve this question, including reading http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=507174 and http://forums.adobe.com/message/3906332.
I've tried the following PDF to Word converters, but ALL of them deform, disfigure, and distort the math, the fonts, and the formatting: Zamzar.com, Wondershare PDF to Word Converter 4.0.1, Able2Doc PDF to Word Converter v7.0.34, and UniPDF.
