View Full Version : Produce pdf file from WordPerfect document

27-07-2005, 05:17 PM
Please can anyone give advice on how I can produce a pdf file (to send to a copy bureau) from a WordPerfect document (I use WordPerfect version 8). The document I wish to send is a 20 page booklet - the pages printing two per A4 page - and WordPerfect handles the pagination nicely (putting page 1 with 20, 19 with 2 etc.)
Thanks in advance....

Hmm there are programs that can convert from other formats to PDF.

BUT not too sure if Wordperfect is one of them. Even with Adobe acrobat pro, it doesnt have an option for Wordperfect files.

So, you can convert it to PDF.

Can you save the file as something else besides a wordperfect file?

Also, you could try CutePDF or PDF reDirect (similar to pdf995), which are pdf print drivers. That way it will not be specific to any particular programmes file format.

Convert the Word Perfect doc using Open Office Writer (word processor), which natively converts files to pdf or, change over to Open Office (it's completely free).

The best program I have found to do this is a free one, Primo PDF, it gives you the option to print to a virtual PDF printer on your computer, thus you can use it with any program that will allow you to print from it. I use it a lot, no problems so far. Every now and again you will be asked if you wish to register your email addy with them, just go to Task Manager and close the program, then retry the virtual printer again, it will not ask again for quite a while, when it does repeat procedure.

pdf995 creates smaller files than Primo. Both are good.

Thanks everyone for your help....

I got the suggestion of CutePdf from an offline source as well, I downloaded it - and it did the job a treat....

here is a link to a page where cutepdf can be down-loaded from
