Converting tex file to other editable text could be an annoying job. The format of output file would be messy most times. Here are some methods to avoid these issues.

Converting manuscript from Latex to Word

Pandoc

Manuscript usually includes many references. It should be declared in the Pandoc command.

Example:

pandoc -s --bibliography ../_papers/zotero-sync-lib.bib --filter pandoc-citeproc --csl ../_papers/styles/ieee.csl example.tex -o example.docx

Foxit

This is probably the easiest way to convert from PDF to word. Foxit Phantom PDF offers the convert function allowing users to export the PDF to Word, HTML, text, and other format. The output is well-formatted.
