Yes, it is only in the paid versions. The paid product is called Acrobat Pro or Acrobat Standard, or just Acrobat. The free product, Acrobat Reader, is not called Acrobat.

You may not want to buy Acrobat, but Adobe really want to sell it - so they have the strongest hand!

Thanks, is it only in the paid versions, or also in the free adobe version? Because I can not find it using explorer or via one of the office 2010 apps. I did enable seeing the hidden files in explorer

Thanks, now I finally know what the problem is. Pity that Microsoft and Adobe stopped the cooperation, costed me a lot of time to figure out what went wrong. Windows helpdesk chat could not find it

Why didn't you use the save as PDF in Office 2010?

For the record, the built-in Save as PDF in Microsoft Office does have “issues” including the total inability to properly generate PDF when any OpenType CFF fonts are used and for some forms of placed images that are not 8-BPC RGB.

Hi,even when I type only character in word,PowerPoint etc it refuses to save as pdf. If the rootcause is not the adobe add in, then how do I solve it? The windows chat could not help me. I  have ways to work around it if I need a pdf, but it is very inconvenient

My problem is that it does not work.I get messages like file not found. According to Windows forums I should see the adobe plug in when I choose :  word-file--options-add ins. But, that is clear now, I dont have it. The helpchat from windows has no clue what is wrong, but are willing to sell me an expensive service-contract. the microsoft forums say that it is related to the adobe addin. In the past saving as pdf in office worked perfectly

The only way that you will see anything Adobe in Microsoft Office applications is if you buy a license/subscription to Adobe Acrobat. When Acrobat is installed, it installs the Acrobat PDFMaker plug-in to Office applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.

This is not available separately, regardless of what someone may have told you on a Microsoft forum.

Sorry!

Hi there,

I downloaded and Installed Acrobat Pro and it did NOT install the plugin. I have Microsoft Word 2011. It looks like PDFMaker should of been installed?

Is there a way to install manually?

Thanks,

Alison

Is this Acrobat Pro DC on Mac? Should add PDFMaker to Word 2011. No way to install it manually but you might have to enable add-ons somehow.

Sorry I don't know what cooperation you mean. The addin was never free. Since Word 2007 Microsoft have had Save as PDF.

... And Microsoft's Save as PDF never used any code from Adobe!

Still, Save As PDF is a normal part of Word. Doesn't need, can't use and won't see any Adobe add on. Microsoft support seem to have been trying to pass the buck.

Simply download something like PrimoPDF and save file using Print command. It allows setting the desired quality of the document. Not as good as Adobe plug-in, but can save the day.

I have tried PrimoPDF and BullZIP. They are great if you jnust want a vanilla PDF, but there are no options for anything like converting Word headings to PDF bookmarks.

 

Does anyone know of a print-to-PDF tool that has those options? 

I am running Office 365 on Windows 10.

Acrobat Pro has those options (though not on print to PDF). Other apps aren't our department.

Yes, we know. The point was finding a tool that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, meaning nothing from Adobe.

I am running Office 365 on Windows 10.
