Convert Documents from Tools You Don’t Own to PDF

Even if you don’t have the document’s authoring tool, you can often convert it to a PDF file.

With the wide variety of authoring tools people use, it is easy to find yourself with a document you can’t open and read. Here are some freely available document viewers. Open your trouble document and then print it to PDF.

Microsoft Office Viewers

Microsoft provides freely distributable, Windows-based document viewers for its Office suite. Download the viewer you need from:

Install the viewer, open your document, and then print to Acrobat Distiller. If you don’t have Acrobat, use our GS Pdf Printer [Hack #39] , instead.
