I'm on a late 2011 macbook air, running lion, office for mac 2001 and acrobat X pro. In acrobat, when I go to file, create pdf and navigate to a word doc, acrobat will not creat the pdf. I get an error message that reads "acrobat could not open test.docx because it is not a supported file type." Create pdf works with other file types. What's the skinny? Thanks.
Your going about it all wrong (If your using Mac). there are three options option to is much better. because of security method put in by Apple in OSX.5 and newer, there no longer is a PDFMaker feature.
Method 3 is far and away the best method. Makes the best and the smallest PDF's. Making PDF's in Mac is Completely different in PC since OSX.5 and newer. OSX4.11 and lower they are almost identical.
I remember answering this very question yesterday. May have been from another OP (Original Poster).
