    Corrupt PDF file

    I have a pdf file that appears fine within acrobat reader
    However opening in word or converting to a .docx format with acrobat reader, the layout changes dramatically.

    i tried downloading Mikho's fileoptimizer to see if the re compression would fix bad lz structure (not sure if its lz error) but the link is blocked
    anyone that can provide manual command for ghostscript ?

    Any other downloadable /offline/ preferably open source tools to fix it

    origina pre-pdf source is not avaiable


    TY

    Maybe you can print it to PDF from acrobat?

    Thank you for the suggestion.
    I did give a pdf file that word could open and convert to a .docx file. but the content is now all pictures instead of text. so still not editable.,
    not sure if that is an issue though.

    But I don't think it'd help

    You can use OCR software on that, like finereader.
