A lot of authors create their content in Word documents. There’s nothing wrong with that, but like most digital printers, PG works in a PDF workflow, so final files must be submitted in that format.
So how do you convert your Word documents to PDF’s? It’s easy! Just follow our step-by-step guide:
Step 1: On the top bar of your work document, you will see multiple tab options. Click on PAGE LAYOUT.
Step 2: Once you are on the PAGE LAYOUT tab, click on the drop down option for SIZE. Next select MORE PAPER SIZES.
Step 3: Go to the PAGE tab and you will enter in the WIDTH and HEIGHT of the book you want.
Step 4: The final step is saving your Word document as a PDF – see below for more detailed instructions.
TIP: Before proceeding, save a copy of your files, just in case something goes awry!
Go to “File”
- Save As
- Save As Adobe PDF
- You will see a pop up notification from Acrobat PDF Maker: “Do you want PDFMaker to save the file and continue?” Click YES
- Next you will see a new pop-up menu to save you file in a specific location and to name your file.
Make sure under the FILE NAME, you enter in the SAVE FILE TYPE AS and select PDF
- Select OK and your Word file will be converted to a PDF.
That’s it! Now you can rest easy knowing your files are set up in the proper format for digital production.
