how do i convert a word document to pdf?

by 22 comments
How do i do this while preserving the links and the material. I used a free one but that did not preserve the links in the documents so they weren't clickable.

Hope you guys can help.

    Use www: - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

    Free, and does the job. Since I found it, it's all I use

    Check the homepage of the Warrior Forum. There is a section called "Recommended by Warrior Forum." There is a link to a pdf converter from one of the links there.

    I hope this helps.

    Open office does the trick.
    I'm not sure but I think you can type a word document and save it as a pdf file.
    I assume that would be possible because open office is basically the same as Ms Office so they should do about the same things.

    Hope that helped

      Some versions of word will lose all the formatting when you save it as a pdf so the open office route is better for you

    If you are using Word 2007 then this plugin will do the trick.

    Open office is the best i've used as far as a free program goes; however, you can also use word but it will lose some of the formatting depending on your settings

    You can just type it in word and click print to PDF file.
    The program I used was pdf959, but now i use openoffice

      If you happen to have a Mac, you're in luck!

      All it takes is to hit "print" and then find the bottom left button that says "PDF" and when you
      click on that, you'll get a menu with options, the first one of which is "Save as PDF"!

      It also converts web pages into PDF (great for creating a library of great sales pages for learning and inspiration), and anything else that's printable. One more reason why I love my ibook even though it has a few drawback (i.e., it doesn't play nice with most software).

    I have to add that openoffice is the easiest program to use if your adding links within your ebook, concerning chapter links from the table of contents.

    It's just a couple of clicks and done.

    Open office is cool and should do you fine, I also use free PrimoPDF from ActivePDF.

    Normally if you used those pdf converter that need to go via printer driver, the links will have issue.

    You can either use open office software to edit your document (I something hate this as when I migrate my stuff from MS Word to Open Office, the document look damn ugly)

    The other way is to get a pdf rebrander (or similar) that do not need printer driver.

      I was having the same problem recently. Although I'd always used OpenOffice for some reason it wasn't converting my docs to pdf.

      Someone on the forum told me about and I've found it works perfectly. It's free to use.

    I have an older version of MS Word and have no issues with using a .doc to make a PDF.

    I wouldn't use anything else but Open Office.

    Used to use PDF Convertor and OO works better.

    Use FinePrint Software
    Download it for free.
    Install it and use is as a printer

    Step by step:

    Open your MSWord document, once you are ready to convert it,
    click on file, click on print,select your printer (pdffactory pro),
    If you want to use the property to secure your pdf so no one can copy or change the content, then click on property, click on security and heck the password or do not print, copy etc options.

    Once you are done with this, return to your printing and click, then give your file a name and click on save.

    Voila, your pdf file is ready

    Cute PDF writer is what I use because it not only preserves links in windows but for also Mac users too, don't forget about your Mac market.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.
