  2. Interesting! I tried converting a 1-page pdf downloaded from an online newsletter. Color print did not come through accurately so the logo, a combined "r + n" looked like "n." A photo of the author did not transfer, and only half of the caption came through. But the rest of the text was perfect! thanks!
