Creating a PDF File

Many times I will ask you to send me a document in PDF format. These are quite easy to create.

The easiest way is with OpenOffice, a free software that has most of the same functions as Microsoft Office.

1. If you do not have it, download and install OpenOffice. It can be found here.

2. Open the program “OpenOffice Writer”.

3. Type and format the document as per the requirements of the assignment.

4. Click the “File” menu and select “Export”. You will be given the option to export the file as a PDF.

5. Save the document.

6. Attach the PDF and email it.

Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to email me.

If you already have Microsoft Word and would prefer not to install OpenOffice, you may also use this tool.
