How to Convert PDF to Editable Word Document in Java?

I have been attempting to implement your Java Pdf Cloud API. I attempted to download your SDK at https://github.com/aspose-pdf-cloud/aspose-pdf-cloud-java and implement in my IntelliJ project but your SDK project is showing up with 100 errors. They all have the same message: java: illegal character: \65279.

Is there something special I need to do to implement cloud sdk for Java in an IntelliJ project?

Hi there,

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Can you please provide some more details about the issue? We will appreciate if you please confirm the feature you are implementing and more details about the error message.
