I am trying to convert an MS Word all-text document to a pdf using Acrobat 9. However I do not get an exact reproduction. The pdf is 3 pages longer; it moves the some text on some pages to the following page and changes the page numbering. How can I get an pdf that exactly duplicates my MS Word file? (Printing to Adobe pdf does not work well for other reasons.)
Computer OS: Windows Vista
I tried changing various settings for my Acrobat 9 Pro but that didn't help.
Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will assist you solve your problem.Could you tell me which version of Microsoft Office (Word) you have?
I am using Word 2007 with Windows Vista
OK. Microsoft Office (Word) 2007 allows you to save all documents in PDF, so you can use its integrated function to convert Word document to PDF in case there are problems with Adobe Pro.Here is how it is done:1. Open a Word document you want to convert to PDF2. Click on the Microsoft Office Button and choose Save As, then click PDF or XPS3. Type a desired name and make sure it says PDF in the Save as type list4. Click Save button and a document will be converted to PDFIf you don't see "Save As PDF or XPS" function, you will need to install Office Add-on which you can downloaded from HERE.
I had done this but it creates a gigantic pdf file (26,151KB) (the Adobe file is 1318 KB) If I use the other option offered I do not get the proper font.
I see. In that case, you can click on Options button before clicking Save button where you can optimize PDF settings.However, if that doesn't work, you will need to make adjustments to Word document so Adobe Pro can convert it properly. For example, if PDF creates extra lines of space, lower line spacing in Word (if it is 1,5 lines, change to 1,15) and see if that helps when converting to PDF.
I tried the options but it gives the wrong font. I don't want to change the line spacing of the MS Word file because it may affect the pagination and it is already indexed. I was under the impression the Acrobat was supposed to produce an exact facsimile of the MS Word file. Am I wrong? It has always done that before for me. Or is there a defect in Acrobat or Word? Also I am using Agarmond font, which is an Adobe font. That may explain the large file when I try to use the MS Word program to create a pdf. I think I may be able to get a good Adobe pdf with some editing, but I don;t think I should have to do that,
Yes, it should convert to PDF with no losses or modifications.You can try doing this:1. Use Word "Save As PDF" function and see if it will produce PDF as you want (regardless of the file size)2. Open that PDF with Adobe Pro and click File > Save As > Reduced Side PDF...3. Save it with another name and see if it will look the same. Its size should be lower now.There is also "Optimized PDF..." so try with that, too.
