Pdf to word conversion - bold formatting from original pdf missing in word


I’m trying out the evaluation version. When i tried to convert the pdf document to docx file.
some of the formating were missing. The bold formating from the original pdf file is missing in the docx file
the number bullets in the orginal pdf files were also simple text and not bullets.

Kindly find below my code in java
Document doc = new Document(“reefer.pdf”);
DocSaveOptions saveOptions = new DocSaveOptions();
doc.save(“reefer4.doc”, saveOptions);



Would you kindly share your sample PDF document with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
