I have some files for work, I need to send to co workers through email. I want it in PDF so they can just view online.


Does anyone have pointers, and know how this works?

If you are going to do this on a regular basis, I would sign up for an account at SendSpace.com. You can then email everyone from the site to download the PDF file(s). The email will provide a link for them to go to and other info pertinent to use of the site. Site also has a multi-upload function.

Try the free registration account first to see if this will fit your usage. Might remind your email recipients that the will need some form of PDF reader. There are free DL apps that are barebones and much quicker loading a PDF document.

Don't think I really answered your question, but assumed you had a PDF writer app. I should know better then to assume at my age. LOL Are you in need of a PDF writer or how to do a document into PDF with the software you have?

OpenOffice has built-in print to PDF functionality.
Or there's always PDF995.

I use PDFCreator from Sourceforge because when you print to it, it allows you to add additional author info before it saves it. It is also free.

I just went out and bought the Acrobat 8 Professional.

Does everything I need, although little complicated.

Buying Acrobat 8 Professional is effectively using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, especially as all you wanted to do was make a couple of PDF files.
But having said that, its up to you what you do.
