This blog post is an extension to Andres’ blog post that explains how to save MS Office documents in PDF. Here you will find out how to save anything that you see on your screen as a PDF file without too much hassle!
If you wonder what a PDF file is and what is good about it, I would encourage you to take a look at Andres’ post, titled “PDF Files”.
1) Obtain a free copy of PrimoPDF from: http://www.primopdf.com/index.aspx
2) Install the product on your machine.
The next few steps will guide you on using the software. PrimoPDF allows anything that you see on your computer screen, and has the option of being printed, to be saved as a PDF File. All you need to do is go to File>Print.
3) Go to File>Print. Select for printer name PrimoPDF and then click OK.
4) A new window will open – PrimoPDF program. Click on the “Create PDF” button. It will then ask you where you would like to save the PDF File. Give the location and enjoy your newly created PDF file.
The only problem that you may encounter with PrimoPDF is that sometimes it does not convert images in a high resolution. If you have questions on how to save particular files in PDF and none of the suggestions on the Blog work for you, please contact the STA office for further assistance.
