How to compile your presentation in PDF?
There are several methods to make a PDF:
1) You can set up your presentation in Word, Excel or PowerPoint and save it as a PDF document (*.pdf).
2) If you have a hard copy of a document, you can use a scanner or printer (most printers have a scanner function) to make a scan. Choose PDF as your file extension. In case you don’t have a scanner at your disposal, you can use your smartphone or digital camera to make a picture and upload it to your computer. Insert the picture in a Word document and save it as a PDF.
If the document is made up of multiple pages, try to scan all pages into one single PDF document. Most printers facilitate this, especially printers with an automatic feed-through function. You can then place the entire document in the feed-through component.
3) If you want to convert another digital format to PDF, you can download freeware online (for example CutePDF).
