Yes, you are right. We are facing issue because of PDF XFA form. We have logged a ticket CONVERSIONCLOUD-380 for further investigation and resolution. Meanwhile, you can achieve your requirement in two steps. First convert your PDF XFA form to standard Acro form and then convert it to desired format(docx). However, we will share complete solution in GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud API asap.
