How do I convert a file to PDF without subcribing or paying a fee?

My old computer (which had Visa) I could right click on most any file and I had three options to conver a file to PDF.... ( Convert to Adobe PDF, Convert to Adobe PDF and EMail, Combine supported file in Acorbat....) which was great!! Now that I have my new computer with Windows 7, I can't seem to find this program without subscribing or paying a fee? Does anyone know where I can find it and how I can get the options back when I right click on a file? 

You previously had Adobe Acrobat installed, which is not free.
Adobe do not have any free products or services for making PDF.
You need to go back through the disks and licenses you got with your old computer. Though in some cases (e.g. some Dell computers) there is a bundled Acrobat which cannot be transferred.

  • How do I convert a file to PDF without subscribing?

    I just downloaded Adobe Reader X, I'm running Windows 7, When I try to convert a file to PDF I'm required to subscribe? I thought this was free? Any ideas?

    Adobe Reader is free - and it reads PDF files; it doesn't create them.
    Adobe CreatePDF and ExportPDF are online subscription services for people who don't want to buy Acrobat. There are links from inside Adobe Reader so users can find those services more easily, but functionally they're unconnected to Reader.

  • How to batch convert Word files to pdf

    How do I batch convert Word files to pdf using Automator

    Here is a drag/drop AppleScript solution that uses the command-line LibreOffice capability to convert MS Word (.doc, .docx) files into PDF. Drag/Drop a single file, or a folder of Word documents, and it will write the respective PDF back to the original file location. When it is done, an OS X Notification will slide out onto the Desktop and provide the count of processed files.
    Save this AppleScript as a Desktop application that remains open after running. If you ignore the latter, the notification will not show when it is done. Tested on Mavericks 10.9.5.
    property name_extension : {"doc", "docx"}
    global fileCnt
    on open of finderObjects
        set fileCnt to 0

  • How to properly convert ai files to PDF

    How do I convert to PDF with out losing quality but decresing the size, ready for online use (to download).

    >Turn off Optimize for Fast Web View,
    I don't know about that, have you had a bad experience with doing this?
    If you save in Acrobat 7 or 8 you can also reduce the files size by going to Document>Reduce Document Size, which eliminates things that are left from conversion but have nothing to do with output. Sometimes saves a lot of size sometimes just a small amount.

  • How do I convert m4a files to mp3 without importing to Library?

    I have a bunch of music that is m4a that I want to convert to mp3, but I don't want to import it into my library or add folders or whatever. Is that possible? I need to make sure all of the mp3 tags are created properly based on the m4a's or the folder/filenames.

    Use a 3rd party conversion program such as Switch to do the conversion outside of iTunes.

  • Advice needed for converting AI file to PDF

    I'm working on some 11x17 page size illustrator files that are of aerial photo maps (with a legend).
    Can someone offer me some advice on how to best convert these files to pdfs and keep the photo quality high and keep the file size as low as I can get it??? I basically can convert it to a pdf but I don’t understand the compression settings section (assuming that’s what needs to be changed in order to accomplish this?).
    Thanks

    This is a trick I find works well.
    Just save it as a pdf and open in Acrobat, then (Acrobat X) go to tools and then Prepare for Web Publishing, use all the default settings.
    This should reduce the file as much as 1/3 the size sometimes even more.
    It has no effect on the qquality.

  • I need to convert PDF file to Word Document, so it can be edited. But the recognizing text options do not have the language that I need. How I can convert the file in the desired of me language?

    I need to convert PDF file to Word Document, so it can be edited. But the recognizing text options do not have the language that I need. How I can convert the file in the desired of me language?

    The application Acrobat provides no language translation capability.
    If you localize the language for OS, MS Office applications, Acrobat, etc to the desired language try again.
    Alternative: transfer a copy of content into a web based translation service (Bing or Google provides a free service).
    Transfer the output into a word processing program that is localized to the appropriate language.
    Do cleanup.
    Be well...

  • How do I convert a file located in my e-mail from PDF to Word.  I can't seem to save it in my word files.

    How do I convert a file located in my e-mail (that is secured) from PDF to Word.  I can't seem to save the PDF file anywhere.

    Hi williamf,
    For starters, please try triple-clicking in the Word document where you want to edit the text (sometimes, that's what it takes to select text in Word). If that doesn't work, I'd be interested in hearing more about the PDF file that you converted and the method that you used to convert it. For example, how was the PDF created (and by what app)? Did you convert via Adobe Reader (what version) or via the ExportPDF website?
    If you can tell us more about the file, we should be able to get to the bottom of things.
    Best,
    Sara

  • When I converted a file from PDF to WORD.DOC it opened as Read Only and I'm unable to alter any of the text.  How can I solve this problem?

    When I tried to convert a file from PDF to WORD.DOC it opened as Read Only and I'm unable to alter any of the text.  How do I solve this problem?  I don't know how to change it from Read Only.

    Dear Sara
    Thank you very much for sending the converted file.  Yes, I am able to edit it - that will be very useful to me and I appreciate your help.
    Referring to your previous message when you said you'd converted via Acrobat and not Acrobat.com, I'm converting via Acrobat.com because that's the only option that is shown (how do I convert via Acrobat? - perhaps that would be more successful).  I'm using the Export PDF website, and the OCR is enabled to "Recognize text in English UK".  However, I've just tried converting a different LPA pdf form, this time for Health & Welfare https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/245571/LPA114_He alth_welfare_LPA.pdf and again I have the same problem as before.  I've altered it from "Read only" and thought I'd then be able to enter text, but "Drawing Tools" is shown in the pane and I'm unable to enter anything onto the form - everything appears to be in images.  Also, the lettering on the heading of' page 1 has become jumbled, with the word "Public" overlaying the word "Guardian."  Any suggestions as to what it is I'm doing wrong would be welcome - I don't like to be beaten!
    Regards,
    Judith.

  • How can I convert multiple files at one time and not one at a time

    How can I convert multiple files at one time and not one at a time

    Hi Plissey1950,
    Sorry for the lengthy delay to a response.  Are you trying to convert multiple files to individual PDF files at the same time? (not combine them).  If so, you'll need to use Adobe Acrobat for this function. The CreatePDF service does not have the ability to convert multiple files to multiple individual PDF files.
    Thanks,
    David
