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.

- Select File > Print or use the hotkey Ctrl-P.
