When you have to email a document but you don’t want to send the easily editable Word document you can convert it to a PDF before sending. Most people only have a pdf reader so they can’t easily edit the PDF document. I know you are probably one of those people that only have Adobe PDF Reader. That also means that you need to find an alternative way to convert your document into a PDF.
One of the best free options I have found for converting a document into a PDF is CutePDF Writer.
“Convert to professional quality PDF files from almost any printable document. FREE for personal, commercial, government or educational use!”
To get started using the CutePDf writer go to http://www.cutepdf.com/ .
Once you find the PDF Creation section click on the Free Download hyperlink.
When the Opening CuteWriter.exe dialogue box appears, click Save File.
After you save the file to your desktop, double click the file. If you get a security warning it is ok, just click run.
Then follow the steps to install the program.
Once it is installed you can begin to convert your documents to PDF’s. All you do is open the document you want to convert to a PDF. Click the print option. Once the print dialogue box opens change the printer name to CutePDF Writer.
Once you click OK the Save As dialogue box will open. Choose where you would like to save your PDF, give the file a name, and click save.
So as you can see if you can print you can convert your document into a PDF for free.
