Use the Pages options to determine the pages to be exported to (*.docx) format:

Use the Page Range options to select the pages that will be exported:

Select All to export all pages.

Select Current to export only the current page.

Select Custom to export a custom page range, then enter the desired page range in the adjacent number box. Further information about how to specify custom page ranges is available here.

Use the Language dropdown menu to specify the language of the source document. This setting is necessary in cases where document text has the incorrect encoding and OCR is used to determine the correct unicode to use. AUTO is the default setting and the language is taken from the document properties when it is used.

Use the Fonts dropdown menu to determine font embedding options.

Select either the Retain Page Layout or the Retain Flowing Text button as desired. Retain Page Layout adds a page break after each page and a line break to lines that are shorter than other lines within the same paragraph. Retain Flowing Text retains the text flow as a priority over the page layout and will allow text to wrap if there are multiple columns of text.

Select the Use OCR to fix garbled text in output files box to use the OCR engine to recognize symbols, which may resolve garbled output text in cases of documents with invalid character encoding.

Select the Make invisible text visible in output document and Include Comments/Images/Links boxes as desired.


Click OK to export the document to (*.docx) format.
