I'm using a new macbook air, running lion, office for mac 2011, and adobe acrobat x pro. When I "right click" on a word file, the contextual menu does not contain and options to creat a pdf like it does in the windows environment. Is this just the way it is or can I do something to fix this? Thanks!
Because of security issues Apple no longer allows that since OSX.4.11. In Word there are two options. the second is much better.
In option two when selected, after a second or so a menu button comes up with Quality button, to select quality this shows all the job options you would normally see in job options in Distiller. And below it, a button to choose whether you want to open in Reader or not. Set those as desired click okay. Next give PDF a name or change to desired name, and browse to desired save location the click okay.
You receive a Far better looking PDF using the second method.
You could just go to print menu and just click on pdf and release. This uses Apple's method of saving PDF's the PDF's are more bloated and not as good a quality as using method 2 above.
