Have you ever created a PDF from a Word or PowerPoint file that didn’t behave as you expected? Maybe links didn’t work or bookmarks within the document were lost during the conversion process.

“How you choose to make a PDF file from Microsoft Office can make quite a difference to how the PDF file looks and behaves. Web links, bookmarks and page backgrounds can appear, or not, depending on how you choose to make your PDF – Save or Print” is the first sentence of an excellent post on Office Watch “Two choices to make a PDF – Save or Print?”

We encourage you to circulate this link (or forward this Courts & More email) to your staff. We will all be generating more PDF files in the future, and we want them to work correctly when shared.
