how to create PDF documents

I have a adobe pdf reader programme. How do I convert a word document to a pdf file which can be emailed and read by others

If it is not a particularly large document you could just send it as an Attachment.

Or, in my Word, there is a Create PDF button on the top menu. Never used it, but I guess one just follows the on-screen prompts within Word.

I have just had a closer look at my Word and its Create PDF button - I also have in my armoury a program called PDF Converter 4 Pro, and it is this program which has apparently put the button into Word, so you probably won't have the same button - Unless, of course Adobe also puts itself into Word?

Have not tried on large docuements, but works well for me.

If you click File>Print, and then in the print window you click the down-arrow beside the field called Printer Name, you should see Adobe PDF listed as one of the printer choices - click on it.

Then click Print, and you'll be asked to specify a file name and location. Then click Save.

Once the file is saved, you should find that Adobe Reader will automatically launch and show your file in PDF format.

Open Office (available as a free download) can open Word documents and has a save as PDF option.

I would also agree with redsparrow that primePDF is a good add on to use with Word.
