How to keep Word formatting in finished pdf

Nov 5, 2009 6:29 PM

I have some check boxes on a summary sheet in Word - they are symbols I inserted on a number of lines so people can "tick" off an item they have completed. When I convert to pdf to post the document on my webpage, the little boxes disappear...any clues as to how I can keep them in the document? I need to figure this out in the next week, so any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks to all.

    This isn't quite the right forum for your query, Hornby, but in the interest of good karma, here's my answer:  It works for me.

    1. I used Word 2003 to Insert > Symbol > WHITE SQUARE.
    2. Saved and closed the file "do this.doc"
    3. I used Acrobat 8 Pro to File > Create PDF > From File... to convert "do this.doc"
    4. After conversion, saved as "do this.pdf".

    Files attached.  ("do this.doc" is renamed to "do this.doc2" due to forum restrictions on attachments)

     

    Cheers,

     

    - Brent

    Trouble posting DOC attachment in original posting.

    (I'm guessing the forum filter is content based not just extension based)

    Sample file "do this.doc" zipped up into "do this_msword.zip".

    Last try, hope this works...
