Word has changed in that it now throws up a pane every time a pdf is opened saying "Word will now convert pdf to an edible word document. This may take a while. How do I change this back to automatically just opening them as it used to do please?

Sounds like the File association may be screwed up depending on how you are opening the PDF. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/choose-programs-windows-uses-default if you open a PDF from within Word, then yes it will do that, but if you double click the PDF then it should open in your PDF reader, either the inbuilt or third party program.

Sounds like a good addon for Word - where can I download it :)
