I was running XP and one day I discovered a print option in most if not all print options that allowed me to print to a pdf file instead of  a printer.

 

I have recently changed to using Win7 and that option is not there.

 

I am running a home built, 4 HD, dual boot, XP Pro/Win7 Pro.

 

Can anyone guess at where I originally got the adobe pdf print option or how to get it on Win7?

My only guess would be that I have a copy of Acrobat 6.0 Pro and I have not installed that on win7.

Thanks

It does generally come from acrobat pro... There is some free software to do the same, personally I prefer adobe pro (any version 9 or newer).


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

The PDF printer is part of the Adobe product.  However, since you're on version 6 and the current version is XI (11) you may want to consider updating.  Depending on what you need from the product there is free software available, such as CutePDF, that creates PDFs.  However if you need to edit PDFs you may want to stick with Adobe.  Additionally Microsoft Office products allow you to save your documents as PDF using File\Save As.

Excellent thought Kilroy, I didn't think of that one because I was trying to capture a web page as a pdf and I was not using Internet Explorer, and I am not sure it that function is offered there as I rarely use IE. It was a receipt. Yes, I could have printed it then scanned it, it is usually just much easier to print to adobe.

Save as PDF is not part of Internet Explorer, but installing CutePDF would do what you were looking to accomplish.

this option seems to exist in google chrome for online pages. i've used it once or twice on a windows 8 machine but i guess it works on anything where chrome is installed.


Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

I've been using PDFCreator for years for this purpose on Win7. Does what it says on the box.
