Re: converting file to pdf


Hey there @Petunia84 - how are you today?

Can you please elaborate on your query? What kind of file(s) you're trying to convert to pdf and what steps are you taking to do this?

If you're using our website, I'd suggest taking a look at the available extensions and active integrations via the 'Open with' button which you'll find when previewing the mentioned files at as you'll might be able to find something that will meet your needs from there.

On a side note, if you're looking for a software for files' conversion, make sure to use an internet search to look for the relevant software. 

Let me know how it goes!

Hello!  Depending on the file, sometimes it can be as easy as opening your Acrobat Reader program, and then Open file and select the one you're wanting to convert into pdf.   Acrobat Reader will convert it and then you can save it as a PDF within Acrobat Reader.   One challenge is that if the file has lots of graphics, it sometimes rearranges them, but for most text it works fine.   Hope this helps!
