Best programme to convert word to PDF and back ?

I've been using an online Word to PDF and back conversion tool called Zamzar for quite a while and which is very good, but it has an input limit of 100 mbs which I sometimes exceed.

Appreciate details of any programmes or suggestions as to how to raise this limit as high as possible.

Many thanks in advance....

I do not understand why you need to do it in such a complicated way? Here's how I do it, first Word to PDF "conversion" by selecting Save As PDF from Word:

No additional third party tools needed. Then PDF to Word "conversion" which I do by opening a PDF document in Word:
-2014-03-19_12h20_42.png
Word then tells me the PDF will be converted to an editable Word document:
-2014-03-19_12h23_10.png
I click OK letting Word to do that and in a couple of seconds I can edit the document in Word, saving it when done however I want to, as a Word document or for instance as a PDF.

Great thanks it's because I never needed PDF right from the beginning years ago until recently, so had no idea this existed....

Thanks again

The way I described it works for sure on Word 2010 and 2013, I am not sure and unable to test 2007 and older versions.

Thanks just discovered this fact as I'm still using Word 2003 so obviously well used to it.

I'm not sure if you have to buy a later version of Word which does have pdf on it but have also discovered that Open Office, free but which I rarely use as it can get very complicated, has it as well so I'm going to carry on using 2003 then paste it across, so the best of both worlds !

Many thanks for all your help in the past too....

I tried that using a PDF I downloaded yesterday and got nothing but gibberish. Does this work on any PDF you try or only ones you created from Word? Btw, I'm using Office 2010 Home and Student.
