How to Make a Word Document a PDF

Home > PDF Creating Tips > Make a Word Document a PDF

The .doc and .docx formats are recognized by almost every individual that owns a computer system. This illustrates how Word is used for creating, editing, and updating documents for almost every industry. However, the .doc and .docx formats have their limitation. Security and encryption features are fairly limited with the .doc format. On the other hand, we have a universal Portable Document Format (PDF) that is accessible on any device without the need for specialized applications. What's more is that PDF files are more secure and can be password-protected (or even encrypted). Generally, PDF is more powerful, secure, and robust. In this article, we will present a step-by-step guide for how to make a Word Document a PDF.
