Good day to all,

My professors sends his notes to us on a 2 slide per page PDF file. Each slide contains very little information, hence I find its best to convert it into a word file with columns. It usually reduces the total number of pages from 34 to around 4 (a fairly significant difference).

The problem is that I don't know of any program that can do this while maintaining the images as correctly editable. I've created this video to better describe my issue. -

Essentially it doesn't convert into Microsoft Word properly. 

Also I've uploaded the 2 files
The first is of the raw pdf file which I'm trying to convert

The 2nd file is what I am trying to achieve. In order to do this I had to take screenshots of all the images individually and then type all the text myself. This is a very time-consuming process and there must be an easier way to attain the same result MUCH faster.

Any advice, hints, tips, programs to make this an easier process would be greatly appreciated
