Converting PDF to XML would be relatively simple if all PDF's conformed to the standards. Unfortunately even Acrobat produced so many different versions of PDF's over the years , 6 or 7 IIRC, that doing the conversion is rarely easy. Add in that so many PDF's are themselves scanned images of text instead of the actual text...

I know I'm necromancing this post a bit.

The advantage of copy/pasting is that you really know the material, that by the time you run it, it comes easy.

I've copy pasted 3 modules (after conversion) and it works pretty darn well. My next project will be monumental: Red Hand of Doom. Conversion and entry all at the same time.

I've done several PDF's by the copy and paste method and it does give you a lot of insight into the material and if it is something like an AP you'll be running for months with a serious party that's a great thing. If it is a module you hate and that no one should ever own but you're being paid to enter then not so much not that I ever did anything of the sort.
