    HELPPPP!! PDF conversion won't work :-(

    I have to convert a word file to PDF but I don't have the software so I'm using an online converter. It converts most of the file fine, except it removes the writing that's in a text box on the first page!! How can I stop this? Does anyone have the software to do this for me?! It's driving me mad!

    There are probably many past threads with recommendations, but I have used the free downloadable software found at [ pdf995.com ] for a few years now & it has always converted everything I have asked it to without any issues (from Microsoft Word, or otherwise) like you described.

    It installs as a Windows Printer Driver so you just print to that as you would to any (other) printer & it spits out a Portable Document Format file instead.

    BFN,

    Yeah, I got illustrator - PM me and I'll sort for you.

    PrimoPDF is a good one to use for printing the original document into a PDF file - I use it as it can handle the bulk of the document types I used to work on daily.

    I'm disowning you.

    I use CutePDF. The set up is a bit strange as you have to go to Print and then select "CutePDF" which shows up as a printer.

    You'd expect it to be a matter of going to Save As, then selecting PDF as the file type but that's not the case with many "PDF converter" tools.

    See, in Leicester, you ask someone to 'convert your file' and you won't get a Word to PDF reply! oO
