Converting a PDF script to Word without pain

I wanted to edit a script I’d written years ago, but could only find a PDF version of it.   Spent half the day trying to copy and paste with loss in formatting etc. I found an add-on for Open Office but it imported it into Draw. No good.

Then the answer came to me as I was uploading a file to google docs.
Docs does it automatically!
If you don’t use google docs to store your scripts online, you’re missing out. It’s a great way to access your work on the road and keep versions organized – and convert PDFs to Word.
Too many hard disk crashes have taught me to rely on online backups as well as CD-ROM.

Go to http://docs.google.com  to upload with your account. When you click the upload button you’ll see at the bottom a checkmark to convert a pdf.

Swell!
