    hi i was wandering if anyone knows a .docx to .pdf converter, i have tried several but for some reason it does not come out correctly, the images become a bit blurred and it puts the in different places. I tried searching google but i couldnt find many that support .docx

    If you're producing .docx files then you're using MS Office 2007, you can download this plug-in from MS to allow MS Office 2007 to save to .pdf or .XPS

    Really?

    What does it do - mung the formatting?

    I'm led to believe the converter from MS isn't the best either. You may end up having to try out a commercial one and see if it works. FWIW I used to use CutePDF and it worked fine - but that was before the days of the new Office file formats

    I've used the default 'save as pdf' option in Office 2007 several times - the results are REALLY poor! :twisted:

    That's strange, I've used it several times and they were fine. I guess it does depend on what you're actually trying to save as .pdf

    Is there any reason why you want to use the .pdf format instead of the .xps standard? You can view .xps for free via IE like .pdf thru Acrobat reader.

    Hi,

    I use this website, www.doc2pdf.net, to convert from any version of Word to PDF. Also works for other Office programs. It seems to work pretty well.

    Thanks.
