    pdf format

    how do you save a word document in a pdf format [adobe]? I noticed that MS Word used to have a link to do that, but it doesn't anymore.

    I had to buy Adobe software to do this for my business. It cost me $299.00

    There are other ways to do it (for free).

    Yes, the latter. It pops up an ad every time you do a conversion, but it works great. It definitely isn't spyware or anything.

    What version of Word?

    If you have Word 2007, you can save as .pdf file directly.

    Try CutePDF

    I use a little piece of freeware called CutePDF, available at http://www.cutepdf.com/. It installs as a printer, so you simply print your document to the CutePDF printer queue, it'll ask you for a filename, and give you a nice PDF file. If all you need are quick PDFs, this works great. If you need more flexibility (forms, etc), there is a $50 version that does more.

    Adobe has an online service for $9.99 a month (or $99/yr): http://createpdf.adobe.com/. They've also got a printer driver solution for a fee, and the Adobe Acrobat several-hundred-dollar product range.

    I've used CutePDF and it works great. I don't need any fancy features -- all I need is a document to share with people that don't have whatever software I'm using to give them the native format printout.

    Hope this helps,

    - della

    Try WordPerfect Version 12. It reads and creates .pdf formatted files. It came with my HP instead of Microsoft Word. I couldn't be happier.
