Hello, I want to convert word files to PDF but not using the upload option to the cloud. Simply convert .docx to PDF locally. How does this work?

Hi,

 

Running this on my machine creates the pdf locally, I turned off my internet access to make sure it succeeded without internet.

 

 

File -> Create -> PDF from file

This may technically be more of a MS Word question rather than an Acrobat question.  

When you go to File/Options/Add-ins in Word, do you show you have the Acrobat PDFMaker Office COM addin installed?

Next, still under File/Options, check where your default file location is.  It could be that your default Word location is to OneDrive, or a location on your computer that is automatically backed-up to OneDrive?  

 

When I convert my Word docs, I hit the File menu and have "Save as Adobe PDF" as an option, and it allows me to select/change where it's going to save.
