Current versions of Word can save the scanning step. Find the PDF file,,
right click on it and arrow down to "open with" and select Word if it is
there. When it opens in Word, the program will ask if you want to open it as
a word document. Generally the conversion tool does a good job of preserving
layout. The exception is when a PDF document has fields for the user to fill
in. However, those are a problems as well with scanning.

About all you can do is to do OCR on the PDF and copy and paste that into a
word processor, like Word, and clean it up.

The whole point of pdf is that they are a fixed format and cannot be
changed, though of course some off er fields to be filled in. It is
important for some copyright material that users cannot change the text for
obviously reasons, indeed some are protected so well you can't read them
with a screenreader, but thankfully not so much a problem now. More of a
problem is the clueless who make picture pdfs where its just a picture of
the text and these need to be run through an OCR to stand any chance of them
being read at all.
