Does Word to PDF converting sometimes get you upset leaving you frustrated in the middle of an urgent project? If it does then you are not alone. I used to feel the same way.
I would go on the internet day and night searching for the perfect software that would make my work easier, only to realize that there was a limit to the number of documents or pages I would convert. And the next thing I would see is Buy the Pro Version to continue. This was so frustrating for a while. And, finally, I came across a simple yet effective way to do this.
Wondering what this tool is? Dropbox is the amazing tool I’m talking about. So, here is the Ultimate Secret of Word to PDF converting that will save you time and money.
Step 1: Locate an article, ebook or blogpost that’s in Microsoft Word format that you wish to convert into a pdf format.
Step 2: Sign in Dropbox if you already have an account. If you don’t, click here to register. It’s totally free! And you get 2 GB worth of cloud storage.
Step 3: Click on Upload button at the top right
Step 4: A pop up box will appear with Choose Files button
Step 5: Select the file from your documents and click open button.
Step 6: Wait for the file to upload
Step 7: Make sure the file has finished uploading
Step 8: Refresh the Dropbox page then click on the arrow like button on the right side of Dropbox to download.
Note: Do not click on that big Download button because it will still have the document in MS Word.
Step 9: After clicking a pop up box will appear asking you to Open with or Save File. Choose Save File. Open with will only open the file in that session. Once you close the browser the file will disappear meaning you cannot get access to it in future.
Step 10: As you will notice above, the file will be saved as document. The title, unfortunately, is lost when you convert the document. What you are left with is an unnamed document as shown below.
Step 11: Rename the file. You do this by left clicking on the mouse then choose Rename then type whatever file name you like.
