Customer Question

I work for small law firm. only 2 employees. We have a lot of discovery to do. We do a lot of copy and paste. We have to convert most of discovery to Micosoft Word, which is always a challenge. We have Office 365 Home. We tried Adobe Pac but it just a big mess. Is there a program I can suggest to the owner that he can buy and make our job a lot easier?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

It depends upon what form, what file type, your discovery material is in, to start with.

Also, whether you are running Windows on your computers, most of them at least, or are they mainly Apple computers?

Let me know this vital data, so that I may advise you and answer your question, please.

We have windows on the computers. One has windows 7 and the other is windows vista. Our problem is once we scan the documents they become pdf and we need to convert them to word so we can write our responses on them. Is there a program where we can create our own forms. Especially Discovery, Disclosure and Productions forms.

Try this on one of your scanned PDF documents, in Word 365:

  1. Click File
  2. then click on Open.
  3. Browse to the location of the particular PDF,
  4. Find the PDF, click on it, then click Open.

Does that produce an MS Word document? esp. when you save it into MS Word format?

Using the


Save As

(choose MS Word as document type to save into, specify name)

function ?
