[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
I have Word 2003 and Vista.. I saw your recent answer about converting a Word document to PDF using Word 2013 and wonder if there is a way to for me to do so.
I googled that question and found numerous “free” programs that claim that capability. However I am aware of the dangers of “free” programs.
Do you have any suggestions? I am a secretary of a owner managed condo association and would like to send our association correspondence using PDF but I can’t afford the cost of Adobe.
Thank you, Charles
Did you check to see if your version of Word has the export to PDF feature?
If not, I have used a print to pdf program successfully. You can try Cute PDF at: http://www.cutepdf.com/
Just make sure you read each install screen and remove the check mark so that you don’t install any unwanted toolbars.
Once you install the print to PDF program, you click on “Print” as if you are going to print the document, but click Cute PDF as the printer. You will then get a dialog box allowing you to specify a name and location for your document.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
