[Solved] How to share pdf files

Postby Roseapple » Tue Dec 13, 2011 11:21 pm

Hi,

I'm using Windows OpenOffice.org 3.3. My friend converted my book into ebook and forwarded to me as pdf. I have no problem opening it but cannot save it as pdf. The book is a cookbook with graphic artwork. When I tried to save it I can only save it in word document and the sketchings and graphic art is eliminated. I want to sell the cookbook on Kindle but is unable to upload it. My friend said I shouldn't any problem, but unfortunately I am. She lives in Winnipeg, I live in Toronto and it's hard to explain to her why I can't save and upload the book as pdf file. I would appreciate your advice.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the forum!

What is the format used exactly? OOo cannot open PDF file (well, it can import it but the result is not very good).
If you use OOo, just stick to native format (ODF, i.e. .odt for text files).
AOO 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 19.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 10 (with winPenPack port).

If she sent it to you is a PDF open it in a PDF reader. There's no need to open it in OOo.

As Gurkha said. Also, if you need to re-edit by changing or inserting/deleting content, you should revert to the original file from which the .pdf was created. The intention of a .pdf file is that it should be the electronic equivalent of a printed book and not editable.
