How To Merge PDF to Word – The Easy Ways

When working on documents with others, you might need to know how to merge PDF to Word. If you often have to collaborate with others, you'll know that combining different document formats can be challenging.

Sending separate PDF files can result in people missing important information because they haven't opened all the attachments. Merging PDFs into a single Word document allows easy editing. It lets you provide files in a format that's accessible to the people you're working with and reduces your time spent troubleshooting.

Or, perhaps you have an existing Word document and need to insert a multi-page PDF into it. You might have encountered problems before with PDFs not displaying properly.

Whatever your situation, there are easy ways to combine PDF to Word documents. Read on for a powerful PDF editing tools for merging and combining documents quickly and easily.

Scenario 1. Merge PDF to Word: Combine Multiple PDFs and Save It as A Single Word Document

You might want to combine multiple PDFs and save them as a single Word file for the convenience of consolidating information from various sources, enabling easy editing and customization. This is often necessary for professional or presentation purposes.

But how do you combine PDF to Word?

We've got three options here, and they all use tools you can access for free.

Option 1. Merging PDFs using UPDF

The best way to merge PDFs to Word is using UPDF. When you use this tool there are just two easy steps to merge PDF to Word format. It takes seconds to merge and convert the files, and the interface is intuitive and easy to use. Here are the steps:

  1. First, you have download and install UPDF on your devices.

  1. Then, merge the PDFs into a single file.Do this by selecting "Batch" and then "Combine" once you've opened UPDF. Then you just need to drag and drop your files or search to upload them.
  1. Last, open the merged file in UPDF, choose "Export" on the right-hand side, and select the Word format.

UPDF isn't limited to merging and converting files. It's a powerful tool that lets you edit, annotate, and organize your PDF documents.

  • Edit PDFs quickly and easily. You can use the simple drag-and-drop format to reorder pages in a PDF or take advantage of the many other editing features.
  • Read PDFs, and take advantage of the powerful search function to help you find text within the document.
  • Annotate your PDF documents in a variety of ways. For example, use it to erase text from a PDF document before sharing it with someone else. Perfect for situations where you need to redact information.

Use it to help explain complex topics or create content for you. The AI chat feature provides an easy way to extract information from the document - simply type your question and UPDF will answer it.
  • Convert files between different formats. Transform PDF documents into a range of other formats such as Word or Excel, so that you can edit them easily. Or, convert from other formats into PDF.
  • Convert handwritten notes into text using the OCR feature. This one's a lifesaver for those of us who jump between analogue and digital notetaking methods.

No more internet searches for "how to convert PDF to Word". No more learning a new tool every time you need to convert a PDF file to a new format. You've got everything you need at your fingertips with UPDF.

Option 2. Combining PDFs with iLovePDF

iLovePDF works in your browser so you can merge PDF to Word.

  1. Open iLovePDF in your browser.
  2. Select the PDFs you want to combine.
  3. Click the "Merge PDF" button.
  4. Download that merged PDF.
  5. Now open its PDF to Word tool.
  1. Select the merged PDF saved on your computer.
  2. Click the "Convert to Word" button.


    Unfortunately, the free version of iLovePDF limits the number and size of files you can work with. This means you're likely to bump up against problems pretty quickly. You're limited to one file per task unless you want to sign up for their paid subscription.

Option 3. Using Aspose online to combine PDFs into a single document

Another browser-based PDF tool, Aspose allows you to merge PDFs and download the final document in your preferred format.

  1. Open the Aspose merge tool in your browser.
  2. Upload your files and choose the format in the "save as" box.
  3. Click the "merge" button.


    Aspose is easy to use, but you should note that you're limited to uploading 10 files for this operation. Also, being a browser-based tool, you'll need an internet connection.

Scenario 2. Merge PDF to Word: Insert A Multi-Page PDF Into An Existing Word Document

What about those situations when you have an existing Word document, and you want to incorporate a PDF document into it?

If you've tried to merge PDF and Word before, you've probably run up against some issues. Often Word will embed the PDF as an object, so the full content isn't visible until you click on it. Or, maybe you'll end up with just the first page inserted, which isn't helpful at all.

There are any number of workarounds posted online, ways to get that PDF into your Word document. But they're usually pretty clunky and time-consuming.

The methods below let you integrate a PDF seamlessly into your Word document. Each page shows as a separate page in the document, and people can read the whole thing easily. It won't feel like a separate document has been inserted at all.

Option 1. Using UPDF to merge multi-paged PDFs and Word documents

UPDF makes it super easy to add a multi-page PDF to your Word document. As we mentioned above, it's a powerful tool for all kinds of PDF tasks, and it makes light work of adding PDFs into Word files.

UPDF allows you to add a multi-page PDF into a Word document without changing the format. The full content of your PDF will be visible, unlike when you insert a PDF as an attachment in Word.

Option 2. Use Word to convert your PDF to Word before combining the two files

Another option is to save the PDF as a Word document and combine the two files that way.

  1. Open the PDF in Word and save it as a Word document.
  2. Then copy and paste the text from that Word document to your existing file.


    The drawback here is that sometimes you lose the formatting when you convert the PDF to Word. It's frustrating to have to spend time fixing things so they look right, which is why I prefer the UPDF method detailed above.
