    Hey, a new world to play around in!

    Anyway, is there any way to convert to convert .doc or .rtf formats into .pdf? I'm guessing it's a whole different thing so probably not, but just thought I'd ask.

    To make PDFs you have to own the version of Acrobat that you have to pay for. Is that what you are asking about, the professional edition of Acrobat?

    I guess it is, I'm not really sure. If I get it, can I just copy and paste a Word document into Acrobat to get a .pdf file?

    I don't know how professional Adobe works so I am sorry I can't help you. I have heard that it has that capability.

    Adobe Acrobat can open files as .PDFs, and if for some reason it's not able to, you can "print" any document using the Adobe Distiller Printer, which will make it a .PDF for you.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    you can use Openoffice's Writer.it can open doc files as well as its own file format and convert them to pdf files .

    This works pretty nice.
    We use it at work for a cheaper alternative to Acrobat.
    They got a free version that displays some sponsor links or something.
    I'd get you a full registered version, but I happen to like my job too much to steal from 'em.

    -edit-
    I just realized I've been lured into visiting the book forum.
    Put this in the software forum where it belongs!

    -edit teh edit-
    I must've been high....

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
