Thank you. Another question.. Is word only misbehaving on the PDF file you converted to a word doc, or is it misbehaving on all files, including brand new files you start? Thank you for your response, Dustin S.

Thank you.. And may I ask what online webpage / service you used to convert the PDF ? Also, was there a lot of graphics / pictures / tables in the pdf document before and after the conversion?
