    Hi Guys,
    Hope I have this thread in the right location

    I heard a suggestion of converting a pages doc to a PDF so that formatting would not be affected, rather than converting to a word doc

    Not sure what program to use?
    Just thought it would be easier when sending pages docs to word users,
    They would not be able to change things but that could be an advantage sometimes
    Regards,
    Gary

    In pages, just file-export to pdf

    OR

    Print-save as pdf while in pages

    You don't need any other program to do this

    You can use the Print option to turn any document into a PDF.

    Just print it, and in the print dialog box there's a PDF button (lower left hand corner) that allows you to save as a PDF
