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 field 'Document Title' and then click Save. (Note: You may also change the Creation Date, Modify Date, Author, Subject and Keywords fields.)
- In the next window, select a destination to save the file. By default, documents are saved under My Documents (Temprary Storage Only). Once the document is saved it will open in Adobe Reader. 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.
