Word 2013 can not only open a PDF document, it also enables you to edit it—without need of a third-party application. You can also edit the data inside tables and move images around the document. When you’re finished, you can save the document as either a PDF or a Word file. This is a must-have feature for anyone who works with PDFs frequently.
There are two methods for opening and working with PDF files in Word 2013.
- Open MS Word
- Choose File -> Open
- Browse to the folder and select the desired PDF document. The file will open and you can now edit it directly in Word.
- Browse to the file location and right click on the file.
- Choose Open with-> and select the Word icon.
- If this is the first time to open a PDF from Word, you will need to select -> Choose default program and select Word from the list. The PDF file will open in Word and now you can edit as needed.
The main advantage of PDF files is that you can convert almost any document type or picture format to PDF so that other users can also view the file on their computers or mobiles, without worrying about the file type.
