hi i am not sure how complex the pdf's are that you are trying to create, but I have found a great little app called pdf995. It installs as a printer on your system, so you simply print the document to a pdf file. It works from all apps, and is free. It opens your browser to an ad page on their site every time you use it, but it isn't a major issue, (unless you plan to make a lot of pdf's i suppose) www.pdf995.com Hello all, I have been trying to convert a document to PDF using Adobe Acrobat so I can put it online and am having trouble. When I do the conversion, some of the items in my document just don't appear in the PDF version! Lines that are the borders of a table cell, or even text. This happens with both Word and Excel conversions. I am on Windows 98 using Word and Excel 2000 which I think is the culprit - I've seen this happen from another computer using WinME and Office 2000, and it wasn't happening on my computer when I was using Office 97. I cannot upgrade to the latest version of Acrobat because it is only compatible with Windows 98 *SE*. Has anyone experienced this happening before? Have any suggestions how I might fix/stop it? Many, many thanks, Maisha -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
