I can print to PDF, but can't import the PDF into Word.  What I have  
to deliver can be Word or PDF, but it should be one document, not  

I looked for pdf2rtf / pdf2word, but couldn't find such an animal for  
GNU/Linux, OS X, Unix.  There are tons of PC-based shareware and  
commercial apps.

I found a Mac OS X app called Trapeze that converts PDF to RTF, but  
it lost all the nice PLT colors.

I found a Mac OS X app PDF2Office which looked promising but the  
installer hung... Force Quit.

If I open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat and copy/paste into Word, I keep  
the colors but lose the formatting.  So that's what I'm doing for  
now, putting the spaces in by hand.
