[Solved] Export to PDF problem

Postby timfhughes » Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:42 pm

I'm having problems exporting files to pdf. I am using open Office 3.3 on a Windows XP system. I have successfully exported numerous files this way, saving them in an Adobe Acrobat format. Lately, when I try to save them that way, I get an error message or the file gets saved in an unrecognizable format that doesn't open up properly when I e-mail it. Has anybody had this problem or have any tips for solving it? th\\Thanks.

In the Export as PDF dialog box, do you have "Automatic file name extension" checkbox checked?

Thanks, Hagar - saved me doing a screenshot! This screenshot is from the Export as PDF dialog, the screen where it asks for the output filename.
