Hi there,

I think that You will need an extra application like Adobe Acrobat. Converting PDF to Word is not so easy (on any OS). I tried this once on a Windows PC, but the result was so bad, that I gave up. I don't know how many documents You have and what You need them for. But sometimes it is just quicker to just copy the text from the PDF and to paste it in a word editor and to edit it there.

IIRC there are web services that can do that. If you don't mind the the stuff leaving your PC (I don't trust privacy statements unless they are easily enforcable).
