Umm...

I think the installation of kword was a partial failure and/or it doesn't fully read the PDF format. I'm attaching a screenshot for you to see for yourself.

I couldn't find kword in the menu (not surprised) and Kword spit out a bunch of errors in the terminal. I'm not sure I understand them too well... They were:
