View Full Version : creating pdf from word

12-26-2002, 07:11 PM
I have to create a pdf from micarosoft word. I have word 2002 and Acrobat 5. I opened the word document but I didnt see a button (acrobat button) where I can click to create pdf. How can I create the pdf?
I also tried like opened acrobat distiller. Then I opened the word document and file>print. From the print dialog box I choose "Acrobat distiller" instead of a printer name. Then when I clicked on OK, it gave an errormessage saying printer is not setup.
Can anyone give me a easy and quick way to create pdf from word?

There should be a button near the top of the window to convert it. There is on mine.

it might be the case that you only have the adobe acrobat viewer.

Assuming you do indeed have the full acrobat writer ...

I've found it often doesn't install the macro button; it might be related to your desktop security settings.

But whatever ... there's a better way of addressing acrobat. Just go to File > Print, and it appears as a printer - called something like "Distiller". Print through that, set the properties you want, and it creates a PDF.
