Creating PDF (Portable Document Format) files – Part 2

By Brian Burgess on October 23rd, 2007

As I mentioned in my previous post I loved the fact that OpenOffice allows such easy creation of PDF files.  In this post I will show how we can still do this in OpenOffice without actually installing the open source office suite.  We can accomplish this using Portable Apps which includes OpenOffice Portable.

Open your Portable Apps menu and launch Writer Portable.


Notice the PDF button in the Writer toolbar.


After entering the desired text into the document, cut and paste it or however you want, click on the above featured PDF button.


Name the file and select a directory to store it, click Save and you’re done!
