Hi

My saveas option in Word 2007 includes the option. If you are on an older... I would google "create a pdf for free"...you'll get plenty of hits.

Regards, Mac

Yes, Word 2007 you can "save as" a pdf file. In older Word programs, go to "file" and select "create Adobe pdf."

I've done it through the print option. After you hit "Print", the left bottom has some options to let you save as a PDF. Hope this helps!

I hope you got the document to behave properly and were able to send it out to the publisher!

I have Word 2003 and I print it to a pdf file. But you do have to download software to do that. I have CUTE Pdf Writer (it was free) and it works fine.

Good luck on your submission!

Congratulations on the request from the publisher!!!

Alas, I am a writer of high hopes and low tech. I would help if I could. I can but pray the other suggestions will help you.

First of all, congratulations on the request! Way to go!! And secondly, you should be able to save the document as a PDF file when you click the "save as" button in word. Double check your formatting--

Crossing all appendages for you!!

You have lots of feedback here re: the PDF, so I'll just wish you best of luck, Anne! Congrats! :)

good luck! I didn't know either and would have had to googs it.

I'm curious about what's going on with the publisher dealy...

Melody said...

Yay!
If you have Word 2007, it's probably already there in your "Save As" list. If you don't, then it gets a bit more complicated. I've used www.zamzar.com in the past and it works pretty well.

Good luck!

Through all these great comments it sounds like you'll be able to do what you need to. Best wishes on your submission.

Hi Anne! I missed you!!! HUGE congrats on the request. I have Word 2007 that has the PDF save option, but I had to go to Microsoft.com and download additional free software that allows me to use it. I hope you have it figured out by now, but if not, email me! I'll try to help you through it :))
