Yes you can Print to Word and then convert to pdf.

Method: Use File > Print, select the layout you want from Type drop down and Click the Publish button. Convert the Word document to pdf using save as Adobe PDF if you have Acrobat installed or save as pdf from Word.

David already gave you a complete answer. Just wanted to pop in to warn about a possible confusion. When you publish to SWF, you have the option to create a pdf as well in the publishing dialog box. However that is not a pdf in the sense of a digital print, but an interactive pdf which needs an Adobe Reader with Flash Player plugin.

Word templates for some layouts are available on your system (dot format),. You may want to update them because that has not been done since many versions in Captivate.

Needs Adobe Reader with Flash Player plugin:

Yes Lieve unfortunately this is a fallout of browsers not supporting .swf going forward. I have recently found, many IT departments will no longer download the flash player and allow it to be used as a plugin in Acrobat. Of course that is having a negative effect in the pdf space as well. I have built many FrameMaker training procedures manuals for large corps and military applications that were delivered in pdf. It was great to embed Captivate swf's in the resulting pdf's. Learners / users could read about it in the manual and then right on the next page, do the simulation or complete a quiz based on the text material provided. Similarily using InDesign to create pdf's with swf and video content from both Captivate and Flash was a great way to engage readers for more fun things like interactive marketing materials and design documents. I remember developing a  series of elementary school documents focusing on the North American wolf and its habitat, complete with videos, captivate content and flash activities and "wolf howling audio".

So it's just not the changes we are experiencing using Captivate and Storyline to deliver online content, the demise of the Flash player in the browser, its also having impact on interactive pdf's since ITs will not download the Flash player to use it as an Acrobat plugin...

So at the same we are publishing Captivate and Storyline output to html5, time to switch Framemaker and InDesign to html5 output.
