Foxit PDF Reader cannot export PDF file to Word file, while Foxit PDF Editor can do that. Here are procedures.
1. Open the pdf file with Foxit PDF Editor, go to Convert tab>To MS office> Word or File tab>Export>To MS Office>Word>Save As, Save As window will pop up.
2. On Save As window, click on Settings. There are two Export Engine Settings options for your choice, one is Skip images in documents, the other is Convert to editable documents. If the pdf file is a text-based file, make sure Skip images in documents option is checked as Export Engine Settings, and click OK.
If the pdf file is a scanned/image-based file, make sure Skip images in documents this option is checked, and click Set languages button to select corresponding language then click OK and OK.
3. On Save As window, input file name and hit on Save to apply settings. The program will start to process the file and the word document will be opened automatically after conversion completed.
Tips: We could click on View tab >Text Viewer to check if the file contains text objects. If you see blank screen under Text Viewer mode, it means there is no text object, so it is a scanned/image-based document. Otherwise, it is a text-based document.
