LibreOffice

On a whim I opened a pdf with LibreOffice. Editing was perfect! It doesn't automatically save to pdf, so you have to use the export function. Peace!

I have the latex2html program which converts the latex file into html pages. but it makes each page of the document into a separate page of html. Very obvious, but doesn't suit my purpose. All i can do is maybe write a shell script to save all the files as one open office doc. It poses a nice challenge to me, probably will try my hands on developing some programs to do it.

If you have the original LaTeX code, then it might be easier to go straight from LaTeX to ODT, or to another intermediary format. mk4ht should theoretically convert LaTeX to ODT but I get an error whenever I try (possibly because I am using LibreOffice?), it does work for creating a single html page though.

You could also look around for any other tools to convert latex to odt.

This command converts PDF into single html file:
Code:
pdftohtml -i -s /%path to file%/%filename%.pdf
where -i is for ignore images and -s stands for single document

Code:
pdftohtml -h
for more info

hope that helped

When I do this, it opens LibreOffice Draw, from which I cannot export to DOC.

Interesting, before I logged in there were several free PDF to DOC for Windows links on the thread.
