View Full Version : Adobe Acrobat, how to right click to make a pdf?
02-12-2002, 07:13 PM
I saw someone a while back make a pdf by right clicking on the word document from within windows explorer, and telling it to create a pdf from there. I can't figure out how to enable this option with my version of acrobat 5.
Yes, I have the full version of acrobat, not the reader.

I dont see that option either. It could have been another PDF program or plugin for adobe.

Maybe they had Acrobat set up as a printer -
Used to be (still is?) you set Acrobat as a printer, and 'printed' your doc as a .PDF to convert it. You can right click & print, so maybe he was right clicking & sending to the Acrobat 'printer'?

yep, acrobat 5 has the printer option. there are actually 2 printers, acrobat distiller and acrobat PDFwriter. Im not sure why there are 2 but the distiller claims 400ppm and 4000dpi and the PDFwriter does 600dpi. You can even share these printers which i think is pretty cool. you only need to install acrobat on one computer and can share the benifits with all the others you want.
