Word To Pdf, Or Save As Pdf

Recommended Posts

On a PC, What is the best way to save a news article as a PDF? If it is copied and pasted to a Microsoft Office WORD document, what is the best way to covert it from WORD to a PDF? Thanks.

Use CutePDF Writer.

It doesn't "Save to PDF"

 

Rather, it installs a Fake printer on your computer called "Cute PDF"

 

You print your document to this "printer" and a save dialogue box appears, letting you save the "printout" as a PDF

Well, first of all, word can save anything as a PDF. just do "save as" and change the filetype to "pdf"

 

that said, if you're trying to save a news article as a PDF, you can cut out the middle step and save to PDF from the print function. ctrl + p, then change the "destination" from your printer to "save to PDF."

 

i think all of these functions are built into at least windows 7, if not earlier iterations also.

First, read the above ^^^^^^ Word can export/save to PDF.

 

To cut out most of the crap on news articles (ads, boxes, menus, etc) I highly suggest the Evernote Clearly add-on. I know it's at least for Chrome and Firefox, haven't tried it for Safari or IE. This should help with card cutting, putting it cleanly into Word, etc.
