Export PDF to other formats

Subscribers to Adobe Acrobat Premium or Adobe Acrobat Pro DC can export unshared PDF files to other formats, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and rich text. This online service requires an internet connection.

During the export workflow, users also have the option of converting scanned text into actual text via optical character recognition. Many export languages are supported.
