How to Do PDF Word Count in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

In previous posts, we learned how to count words in a text by copying it to Microsoft Word or exporting it in text format from Adobe Acrobat Reader. Today we will learn how to do PDF word count in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (a full version of Adobe Acrobat Reader).

To count the number of words in a PDF document:

Open your file in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. It’s a full edition of Adobe Acrobat, not to be confused with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Go to the “File” menu and pick “Save As.”

In the “Save As Type,” choose ‘Rich Text Format (RTF)’ and save.

In case you do not need all the text, but only a piece of it in another format, you can do a PDF word count in Adobe Acrobat in the following way. Select text in a PDF doc and export it in one of the supported formats: DOCX, DOC, XLSX, RTF, XML, HTML, or CSV. To do that, perform the following steps:

Open your document in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Use the Select tool and mark the text for export.

Right-click the highlighted text and pick “Export Selection As.”

Choose a file text format from the “Save As Type” list and save you fragment.

You can also use Converter on the left side to convert your PDF file to DOCX instantly:

Export PDF to Word Adobe Reader

Or go to the Tools tab and click the Export PDF button:
