View Full Version : Free or trial word program??? - emergency

I have a couple of PDF DOCUMENT (scanned documents) that I must use to finalize Court Pleadings that must be filed tomorrow.

So I downloaded Nitro.pdf program because it will convert pdf to text - well I guess its not any text, it has to be WORD PROGRAM - and what I have is Jarte so when I convert the file and it opens there is nothing there.

So i need to download WORD somehow - does anyone know a safe place to download word?

Time is my enemy right now - when it rains it pours.

I'm in a panic mode. CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE?

I will give that a try - this seems to be one of those times where the crunch is really on and even stuff that used to work is no longer performing. I did download a free Word program from microsoft but it was useless because I had no product key so I'm more than a little ticked at them for being misleading plus there was some kind of EXTRA program that came with the download that you had to approve and I declined the extra yet it installed anyway so then I had to do a system restore because the "extra' took over my computer, browser, search engine, etc. NOT HAPPY WITH MICROSOFT especially putting extra crap on my computer.

Anyway I will try your suggestions. I was trying to print out the PDF and incredibly it would only print one page - another example of what can go wrong will go wrong. Back to work for me! Thanks again.

You can use Nitro to export to plain text, just click the "To Other" button and select one of the dropdown options.

However, if you still need a Word Processor, you can use the free LibreOffice "Writer" program, which is very similar to Microsoft Word and can edit almost all of the same files. Here is a link to download LibreOffice: Libre Office

Might have a look at KingSoft Office Suite Free:

Think you'll easily be able to do what you want quickly with it. Does what it says on the tin. Check out the "Writer" features and see if you think it will work for you.

Thanks for the suggestion - I did use open office a few years ago and it had a lot of possibilities but it seems to me I recall that it had something about linespacing that defied fixing and I sort of gave up on it. Maybe they have updated since then to fix the problem.

Thanks I will check that out!

that's what i have been trying to do but its not working. Even though I have a program that is supposed to do that - it has failed..
