There is no fast, reliable way to convert PDF to something else, since PDF was designed as an output format, and usually does not convert well to other formats.
Here are some things you can try, but don't expect perfection.
pdftohtml with pdfreflow - converts to HTML
calibre -- will convert PDF to rtf and other formats
PDF Import Extension for libreoffice/openoffice -- convert PDFs to various WordProcessor formats
AbiWord -- a word processor with its own PDF import routine; will export to Word and other formats
For converting to Image, or just leaving as a PDF and making edits, check out Inkscape

Alternatively you could OCR the PDF with ABBYY FineReader (or similar) and save the result as .docx/.rtf.
Honestly, I thought the topic was about a specific problem with converting from PDF.

Yes, but I used to convert it by an app or program on PC. Not difficult to go. But pls note that some apps like this might cost a little.
