[Tutorial Video] Exporting Documents as PDF Files in OOo

Postby TomC » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:11 pm

In order to protect your word processed documents, it is a good idea to export them for distribution as PDF files, which allows you to encrypt, and add password protection to your work.

Open Office Writer includes a built-in Export to PDF feature, and in this screencast tutorial, we show you how to quickly as simply export your documents as PDFs.

Not sure what version was used to do this, but it is slightly out of date. The "PDF Options" dialogue now appears before you choose a filename, which is more logical. I think this behaviour changed in 2.3.0 which was released middle of Sept '07.

I tried accessing the link in the first post, but my anti-virus goes crazy, says it's infected with a virus. Just letting you know... :?

No alarm here, using latest AVG updates.
