Publishing documents to PDF in WordPerfect

In WordPerfect, you can publish documents directly to PDF. This feature lets you save WordPerfect files as PDF files. You can choose from three preset styles, depending on your desired output: document distribution, editing, or the Web.

PDF files are platform-independent files that can be viewed, shared, and printed by computers running the Windows, Linux, UNIX, or Mac OS operating systems. The PDF file format is designed to preserve the fonts, graphics, and formatting of an original application file.
