PDF to Document Conversion

I have been looking for a way to convert a PDF to either a Word Document or an Open Office document.  Basically, I have some instructions for installing software delivered as a PDF with the software from the vendor.  I would like to be able to convert that document to something I can edit and add my notes to it as I install.  Currently, I just handwrite the notes on the printed copy of the instructions.  If I could convert it to Word or Open Office, the end result would be searchable and I could add screenshots.

I found a great link that will convert documents online:

http://www.convertpdftoword.net/

This worked for a small document, but my instructions document did not work.  I am assuming that it is because it was too large.

I found a plugin that says it can import PDFs for Open Office 3.0.  I haven’t tried it yet.  I will try to do that and report back.

A while back, I found that importing PDFs was on the ToDo list.
