A PDF (Portable Document Format) ensures that your file can be viewed and printed in the layout you intended. If you do not use a PDF, the position of texts may change and/or the number of pages may increase or decrease. This is because everyone may have different settings defined on their computer, such as margins and headers and footers.
How to create a PDF in MS Office:
- Save your file by selecting 'Save as'.
- Choose the following file type: PDF (*.pdf).
Other programs to create a PDF
It is best to use programs such as Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator to create the layout for your printed material. You can also choose from many other online or other programs with which you can create beautiful designs. You may use any design program you like, as long as you save or export the file as a PDF file.
