Hi everyone I need help with making a knitting pattern into pdf format. I signed up to adobe acrobat but can't figure out how to turn my patterns (that are word documents right now) into pdf format. I need to be able to email the pdf patterns. If you have done this or know how can you help me out. I am so confused. Huh

Are you using the fullblown Acrobat, or just the reader? You can't make .pdf files using the reader.

when I'm in word and click on print there is drop down menu that comes up in the print box when you click on a button that says 'pdf' - it lets you save the word file as a pdf. Maybe you can do that.

When I created PDFs, I used a freebie programme called PDF Creator which was dead easy to use, and all you do for that is write your pattern in word, then send it to print, but instead of selecting a printer, you select the creator programme.  Well easy, and I highly recommend it.

Where did you find this program?

Google PDFreDirect, or use Open office (it will make pdf files, doc files like word, etc) Also, there's Foxit, which is a pdf reader. I can't use adobe, because it doesn't seem to like my computers. Runs like a snail for me.

Plus I'm (as my husband calls me) a commie open source lover. Open office is a bit slow for me, but it's faster than MS Office....
