The other day I was asked if you could make a PDF file from a word document without Adobe Acrobat. The answer is absolutely yes and the software is FREE! I use Nitro’s PDF Reader with comes with a print driver to create PDFs.
To make the PDF just act like you are going to print the document to the physical printer but select the Nitro PDF maker. A pop up box will ask you to name the PDF document and a file location for the final PDF.
