#39 Create PDF’s in Word Without Adobe Acrobat

March 21, 2011

Did you know you no longer need to have a full version of Adobe Acrobat installed to create PDF’s from Word? Since Word 2007, Microsoft has built in the ability to save your documents as PDF’s. If your document contains any internal links or a table of contents, these features will automatically work in your PDF’s as well.

To create a PDF, click the Microsoft Office Button, point to the arrow next to Save As, and then click PDF or XPS.

If you need to install the PDF add-in for Office or want to learn more, visit Microsoft’s guide to Print, share, and protect files in the PDF and XPS file formats.
