Why Convert Word to PDF?

Converting Word to PDF creates non-searchable, or raster, PDF files. This is an ideal way to protect the information in your Word files as each page is an image, allowing you to safely share your Word files in a format that can be viewed by virtually anyone, but cannot be altered.

How to Convert Word to PDF

  1. Install Raster Image Printer onto your computer. This will create a new virtual printer in your Printers folder.
