    Hiya,

    Is there a proper way of going from PDF > Word > PDF. A user had the requirement to add some comments to a PDF document, but couldn't do it in Acrobat Pro (the PDF came from a client, not ourselves).

    So we ended up converting to Word (using Acrobat Pro) but this caused the output Word file to be 130MB as it puts each page as an image (there were tons of images). We then dropped text boxes over where he had to add comments, then converted it back to PDF using our PDF Printer driver.

    That is a long-winded way of doing it, considering Acrobat Pro is supposed to be able to edit PDF documents!

    Since .pdf is highly compressed the increase in file size is to be expected. I use PDFZilla for similar stuff as I don't have the full Acrobat at work and I experience the same when a lot of imagery is present.

    I have a link to an online .pdf editor but have not had reason to use it yet so I can't vouch for it. There are probably others.
