PDF format has been widely used in our work files. However, you might get some PDF files that were saved as “secured” or “password protected”. The question is that it is impossible for you to copy and paste texts of a secured PDF file. To solve such problem, the simple solution is to convert secured PDF to Word format.
However, many PDF applications you can find from the Internet will not be able to convert the secured PDF files. Luckily, I happen to find iSkysoft PDF Editor Pro (and PDF Editor for Windows), which can do the job perfectly. Below detailed guide will show you how to turn secure PDF into Word format with this outstanding PDF tool.
