It is also a good idea to convert Word documents to .pdf format if you are sharing them via email or other means. Again, as long as the document doesn't need to be edited by the recipient, .pdf files can be opened on most computers, Mac or PC.
Here's how to save a Word 2007 document as a .pdf file:
- Type your document and save a copy as usual. This will ensure that you have a copy in Word format for future editing.
- Then click File > Save As PDF or XPS. (See picture below.) If you don't have the Save as PDF or XPS option on your computer, download the add-in here.
