Re: pdf to html

You can do that directly in Acrobat Pro DC (latest version of Acrobat makes better conversions).

File / Export To / HTML Webpage.

It does create a webpage from the PDF file, complete with all the "stuff" you might not want. If that's the case, export to Word instead and from there convert it to HTML.

To automate this process for a large number of PDFs, create an Acrobat Action.

Open the Actions Tool, and choose New Action or look for an Acrobat Action on the web.
