PITA new computer...

Postby Starmom » Thu May 12, 2016 9:09 pm

I never had any problem converting OpenOffice .odt to pdf on previous computers. Been trying for around 3 months to get a pdf converter to work on current computer, but have had nothing but aggravation. I've tried every free option I've been able to find (via Google), but none meet my specs- some claim to be free, but then show up with '14-day trial,' while others have all sorts of complications.

Specs: I need the 'convert to pdf' option on .odt to actually work- to have the pdf end up on my desktop, not some other location;
and also to be a basic, neat file that doesn't have all kinds of extra junk on it (like bunches of icons for editing, etc. etc.)

The main reason I need pdf's is for uploading to a self-publishing site.
Occasionally I also need them to email to people as attachments.

If this can be accomplished with doPDF, can you tell me how to avoid unnecessary complications?

Thank you for any assistance.

You can create PDFs from .odt files with doPDF and you'll be able to choose where to save the file (i.e. Desktop).
