John,

This will do the trick quite nicely.  Use it or have used it myself.  And, bonus, it's free.

 

Cheers,
Drew

Right within Word, give this a go: http://m.wikihow.com/Convert-a-Microsoft-Word-Document-to-PDF-Format

🎉 Hope it works for you!
P.S. What version of Word are you using?

The word processor in Corel Office will make the conversion if you choose it to.   Corel Office is a commercial consumer product, so not free.

Word can do it. Within ms word there is a function to export the .doc file you have open as a .pdf file. It is located near the "save as" options.
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

Hi johnalbert88 :)

If you want, you can use "CutePDF Writer" (free) which allows you to convert a Word file to a PDF, by "printing" it using a logical printer. For more information, you can check the link below.

Is cutepdf safe to use?  It now seems to come with baggage (toolbars, etc). 

 

I would like to use it but is comes with free things that are harmful I think.

 

Am I wrong?

 

Thanks

 

SM

CutePDF is safe to use, yes. Simply opt-out the programs it offers during the installation process and you'll be good. I'm using it on all my computers.

I downloaded CutePDF which I used to use and like.  You also need the converter I beleive.  The converter, when ran through Virus Total gives 2 scary looking Trojans, Trojan.Malware.Obscu.Gen.001 and Trojan.Win32.A.Dynamer.5254656[h].  But VirusTotal indicates:  Probably harmless! There are strong indicators suggesting that this file is safe to use.

 

Do you use the converter also?

 

I am a little reluctant to use it because of this but it is probably safe.

 

Any other thoughts before I install it?

 

Thank you.

I don't use the converter but the detections are false positives (they are generic ones). From which companies are these detections?

I thought you had to use the converter.  Are you using the free or professional version?  The companies are ByteHero and ViRobot.

 

Thanks

I use the CutePDF Writer to print the documents into PDF files and it works for me. And these are two "unknown" Antivirus companies so I wouldn't worry about these detections.

I think you have to install the converter: 

  * CutePDF Writer requires PS2PDF converter. Get a free converter here.

This is from their website.

You do have to install it, but that option is offered during the installation of CutePDF Writer so simply agree to it and it'll download and install it automatically.

Can you not just use an online converter like http://convertonlinefree.com/ or save as PDF or Print as PDF.

 

Other than that go with Aura suggestions he´s my mentor (he doesnt know it yet)
