What is involved in writing your own PDF files?  I would like to write product instructions in a PDF format but am not sure where to start or how to do it.  Is it free or do you have to pay to use it?  How do I set it up?  Any info in this regard will be appreciated.

Thanks, Richard

Hello Richard,

PDF files are easy.... Paid and unpaid. I "Had" Adobe Pro DC from Adobe on a subscription rate but can get financially bothersome with recurring payments. However the pro version is capable of mark-ups,merging multiple pdf documents as one, version tracking, bates numbering (for legal documents), signatures, imbedding video, highlighting, etc. I discontinued after I was finished composing legal motions and pleadings. I went back to using Microsoft word. Most everyone has word.

 When you create and write a new word document Microsoft Office normally auto-saves by default. However You can stay in full control of saving your document in a variety of formats. I and I suggest anyone to keep a word document saved in 2 versions.. (docx) is default word.. To save in PDF you create and write what you like. Go to the "file" at upper left of window. Choose "Save As". Click on PDF. Choose folder destination ) desktop, documents, etc.)..I normally choose desktop as Its easy to find when I grab the file for email in Outlook.... Go to the folder you chose to save in ,double left click and look at your work for proofreading  for typos, formatting bloopers etc..

I also failed to mention the word version of your PDF document is used for changes in editing, additional info, etc. When done save in word, then go back to save in PDF.. Don't change file names of the PDF or it wont update changes but create an entirely new version

Yeah, I don't really want another monthly bill for something I will use every once in a while.  I'll play with word a bit and see if that does what I want.

Thanks John!

Much appreciated John!

Well done John!  

I couldn't find the PDF provisions on word 2003 because it isn't there.  lol  I really need to update my computer and software I guess.

I did find a PDF plug-in for Word 2003 through the University of Michigan: https://secure.rackham.umich.edu/templates/pdf_2003.html

I'll give it a shot when I have time.  Thumb

You are very welcome.... I "had" office 2003 two computers ago. That plug in looks like it might work. It's good you went to an edu site. The plug ins from softronic and others you'll find like on cnet are bloated with advertising and don't work. Microsoft along with other publishers of software are moving to a subscription basis to create "consistent" revenue. However if and when interested I found on the office website 2 non subscription office suites. MS works and plays well with others when they are in suite form.

https://products.office.com/en-us/home-and-business

https://products.office.com/en-us/professional

I am fortunate that my lovely female in the home here works in IT at the 2nd largest barge company in the country and she arranged for me to get MS professional plus for $10.00 under the HUP ( Home Use Program ) under an enterprise license.. Both of these suites are for win 7 or later. The small business suite offers plenty and will do about everything.. The professional offers database, sharepoint, One Note and publisher. I like publisher as I can publish brochures for the printer but 90% of users do fine with MS Small Business

Enjoy /Good Luck

When I was attending U of M I was able to get the professional version for under $100.  The list price has come down for it since then I see.
