Default How To Make A Free Pdf File!!!!

IDK...something small and maybe useful...
it works and its great!
Thought I'd share with people!!



1.) go to the link below:
http://www.download.com/PDF-ReDirect...=dl&tag=button

2.) open and install downloaded file

3.) after installation open up the program "sometimes you will not find it on your desktop, you will have to go to
Start>all programs> PDF Redirect V2> PDF ReDirect

4.) once opened go to the file or document that you want to be formatted in PDF.

5.) in the document click print

6.) choose printer "PDF Redirect V2" "it should be there from installation"

7.) make sure "print to file" is unticked!!!!

8.) after that click print "nothing will actaully print dont worry!"

9.) go to the PDF ReDirect program and youre file will be in the "merge list"

10.) on the bottom choose the output file name and then simply click save!

11.) you have just created your own free PDF file!!!!

HORRAY!!!

Or, just copy and paste the stuff you want as a PDF into Open Office's word processor and click the "Export directly as PDF" button right next to the print button.

@ Esa, It's a document that cannot be edited by the end user unless they have the correct software. Most manuals for and spec sheets are done in PDFs so no one can change it and sue for false advertising or some crap like that.
