Creating a PDF file from a Word document is simple. Yet many people are confused by how to accomplish the task. Thats because theyre looking in the wrong place for the option.
It seems logical that one would create a PDF by using the Save or Save As dialog boxes. But in reality, youll find the option to create a PDF file in the Print dialog box. This is where most, if not all, PDF creation tools allow you to create a PDF.
To create your PDF, follow these easy steps:
1. Click File
2. Select Print
3. In the Print dialog box, click the drop-down box listing your installed printers
4. Select your PDF creation software on the list (for example, if youre using Adobe Acrobat, select Adobe PDF)
5. Click OK
If youre using Adobe Acrobat, Acrobat will open once it has created your PDF file. If youre using a different program, this may vary.
