    Adobe PDF (2007)

    Hi loungers.

    I have recently installed Office 2007 and Acrobat Pro 8
    I don't see any sort of command on the ribbon or menu to make a pdf from the opened document. If I go to options, the pdfmaker add-in is installed and checked to load at startup, as is Google desktop, but I can't find the commands anywhere. The only item on the addin section on the ribbon is Mappoint.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for looking.

    PDFMaker is not yet compatible with Office 2007. Adobe apparently is working on a patch (see Adobe - TechNote). You should still be able to print to the Acrobat printer, though.

    Adobe have not yet released a version of PDFMaker that works with office 2007. Adobe has stated that in the first half of 2007 they expect to issue a free Acrobat 8 patch that will provide support for Office 2007.

    You can install an add-in from Microsoft that will allow you to save as PDF - 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS

    I am using both the Microsoft PDF maker, and Adobe Acrobat Pro '07 and both work well.
    Adobe is accessed through the Print Pommand, and Microsofts is accessed through the Save As command. I find that using the Save As command is much faster.

    This is the only case I can think of in which Microsoft did not accommodate Adobe. What is more, they did not tell us in advance, although my own setup did not include Acrobat (other than the reader).

    Was anyone given forewarning through the compatibility gizmo? Maybe I'm thinking of Vista: when you have both Vista and Office 2007 installed you tend to forget these things, which is an argument against migrating both suite and O/S at about the same time.
