How to post Word documents

Postby Edwin Corrie » Fri Dec 09, 2011 3:49 pm

Just wondering if there was a way to post Word documents on the forum. I have various bits of material that might be of interest (e.g. extracts from old books), but often they include images of the original pages which I don't think I can post in a normal message. Or perhaps something like Google Documents so that everyone could have access.

Also, assuming it's possible, would I post the documents or links here under the general heading of "Books" or in the relevant forums (e.g. Napkin folding if it's a book about napkin folding)?

You mean like this? (see below) The trouble is, a) they are not searchable b) people may not have Word. pdf may be a better compromise.

under the most relevant heaing, I guess, but explain clearly what the document is.

Ah, right, I don't know why I didn't see that.

Sorry to be a pain, but can you recommend a site for converting Word to PDF? There seem to be lots of sites that will do it for free, but you know what I'm like and a recommendation would be nice. For example, how about this:

OK, in case anyone needs it, I found this site for converting to PDF:

It's so easy that even I can do it.

Or you just install the BullzipPDF-Printer link
it will show up as a printer in any program that can print but will give out a PDF instead of a sheet of paper.
