If you have
Adobe Acrobat Standard, you can use Microsoft Word 2007 to
create PDF documents. The utility that makes this happen
is called PDFMaker. In my case I do have the Adobe
Acrobat Standard, so when I open Microsoft Word 2007, I do see
an Adobe Tab as shown below.
thing we will look at is how to create an acrobat PDF document
from my current Word document. In order to do that, you
click on Create PDF command on the Create Adobe PDF
group. Here is a screen shot of what I'm talking
When you click on the above
command, the Save Adobe PDF file dialog box opens up.
This is illustrated in the figure below. Go ahead and
enter the name of the file and then click on Save. This
will start the process of converting a Microsoft Word document
into an Acrobat PDF document.
process completes, you will have a PDF document as shown
below, very nice! You can now email or print this
document if you like.
If you wanted to change the
settings in the PDFMaker, you can select the Preferences
command under the Create Adobe PDF group. Here is a
screen shot of the preferences dialog box.
Next we will look at how to
create a PDF document and email it to somebody. First
click on Create an Attach to Email command on the Create and
Email group. This is shown below in the screen shot.
This will start Save Adobe PDF
File As dialog box. You can type in a name for the file
and then hit Save.
If you are
running Microsoft Outlook on this computer, a new email
message should display on your screen. The PDF document
will be attached to this email as shown below.
PDFMaker utility, you can also use mail merge on a PDF
document. In order to use this functionality, you will
need to use an email merge template that can be downloaded
from the Microsoft website. There's a screen shot shown
below that highlights the needed steps.
The next two
commands have to do with reviewing and commenting in a PDF
document. Using the Create and Send for Review command,
you can use the PDF document with an email based review.
Here's what it looks like.
You can also
import comments from an Adobe PDF document into your current
2007 document. You would need to click on the command
titled Acrobat Comments and follow the steps. One
limitation regarding this is that you have to use a Tagged PDF
document to import comments.
last thing I want to mention about the Acrobat Tab in
Microsoft Word 2007 is the Meeting feature. You can
click on Start Meeting command under the Connect group.
There's a screen shot shown below.
You can have
an online meeting and collaboration using Acrobat
Connect. You would need to sign up for a free trial
before you can use this feature in Microsoft Word
