    It is a matter of opinion, I use 2010 and don't see a reason to upgrade to 2013. Though if I would upgrade I would go for Office 365.

    When installing, you have the option to put the new version in a different location. However I'm not sure if some shared dll's won't cause issues. A VM would be a certainty, imo.

    Morning!

    I discussed it but probably you won't be happy from what I learned. Generally speaking there is not a reliable freeware. We have very good experience with ABBYY FineReader 12. Unfortunately it is a paid product and not so cheap. But only this one is giving us 100% import results even with our language that is full of diacritical marks. They have a trial version but with the following limitations.
    - 30 days use
    - Processing of up to 100 pages
    - Export or saving to an external application of 3 pages at a time

    word 2010 alias doc? I have never used it so I don't remeber if it use doc or docx
    If you means DOC I personally use a web service that use calibre, so you don't need install a program.

    put the pdf and it will suggest you doc or other extensions (jpg or epub)
    I have use it for some academic pdf and it works great !!!

    PDF Shaper, free, can convert PDF to RTF or extract text. I use it mainly to combine PDFs.

    LibreOffice imports PDF as graphic pages.

    Anyway, to edit PDF is difficult and cumbersome. The format wasn´designed to be editable.
