Library computers are equipped with the software to convert any Microsoft document file (eg. Word, Excel or Powerpoint) or Web browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) pages into a PDF file. You may convert your thesis, essay or any other document into a PDF file with the following instructions.
- While editing your document click File and then Print.
- Select PDFCreator from the drop-down list under Printer, then click Print.
- Type the name of the file in the Filename field and then click Save. By default, documents are saved on the Desktop. (Note: You may also change the Author, Subject and Keywords fields.)
- To change the save location, click on the button beside the Folder field in PDFCreator and browse to choose another location. Click Save. NOTE: Make sure you either transfer the file to your personal storage device or email it to yourself as an attachment before logging out of your session on a Library computer. Neither Information Commons or the University of Toronto take any responsibility for the loss of your file or data.
