    Hi,

    OSX 10.5.8
    Word 12.2.6
    Entourage 12.2.6

    When i save a word document as a .pdf file and then send it from entourage it arrives with a ".pdf.doc" file type that no one can open, can anyone suggest a reason why or how i can fix this problem.

    Thanks

    Dave

    It sounds like you're not actually saving the file correctly as a PDF. If you're just typing in .pdf as your extension in Word, that won't make a PDF. Instead of going to the Save As menu, go to the Print menu. From there, select the PDF button in the bottom left corner, and select "save as PDF".

    Regards,
    Nadyne.
