Converting from PDF to Docx removes images

I’m using GemBox.Document to convert a PDF document to a Word Document. However, the embedded images (in the header and footer) are being stripped out in the converted file.

Is this expected behaviour?

Yes, this is expected, the current PDF reader has limited usage, it is not designed for high-fidelity tasks.
Please read “Support level for reading PDF format” section on the following page:
https://www.gemboxsoftware.com/document/docs/supported-file-formats.html#support-level-for-reading-pdf-format-beta

Also, please refer to your previous question regarding the future plans that we have:

So in short, we currently don’t have an adequate solution for converting PDF to DOCX, but we plan to provide one in the relatively near future.

Regards,
Mario
