There seem to be [at least] two types of PDF files.

One are essentially scanned images.

The others are formatted text files that can be converted to .doc or .txt by either Adobe
[full pop; not the free adobe reader] or a number of websites that do free file conversions.
 If you can copy and paste from the PDF, you are most ways there on your own.

There are web sites that purport to convert scanned images to text files, but they seem to
be finicky on the scanned image; I've not had good luck with these.
