How to Create a PDF File

Creating a PDF File

Have you ever wanted to know how to turn your documents into a PDF file?

You can create a PDF file from your documents by using a program called a PDF Writer. Just as the name suggests, these programs will write your documents to a PDF.

Most PDF Writers use a print driver to print your documents to a PDF formatted file. So, instead of saving the files as a PDF you will actually print them. Since the PDF writer works as a Printer you can use it right from your favorite word processor, such as Works, Word, or Open Office.


Using a PDF Writer

You can easily print your documents to a PDF file right from your word processor by following these three simple steps.

  1. Select File > Print or use the hotkey Ctrl-P.
  2. Select your PDF Writer from the list of printers.
  3. Name your file and save it to the location of your choice.

Also, if you use microsoft office , you can save your word documents as a pdf. If the pdf option is not available in word you can download it from microsoft free of charge. This option took me about 2 minutes to set up and is very easy to do.

good hub, thanks.
