Show And Tell: My First .pdf File
I've been playing around with the Open Office program the computer guys put on this system after they reformatted it. I decided to just use it instead of reinstalling MS Word. Seemed like a simpler solution.
I noticed it lets you convert documents to .pdf (Portable Document Format) files. Not sure if the latest version of MS Word lets you do that but I thought I'd give it a try, having never created a .pdf file before.
I actually hate it when links send me to .pdf files, but I can see where it might be useful. So here's a copy, with some additional commentary, of the latest (and first) fax I sent with that lame Microsoft Fax Services program I recently installed.
On this computer- since it has Open Office(?)- .pdf files are opened with a Fox It Reader. If you don't have that, Acrobat Reader will probably open it. Let me know if the link and file works. It works for me.
And be sure and drop a line to Mike Thompson in support of the bill I mention. We need him to become a co- sponsor.
Addendum: Hmmm??? Link doesn't work with blogspot, but worked when I just dropped it into my browser. Have to figure it out.
Yep. Still works fine if I copy and paste this link ( www.fredtyg.freeservers.com/Thompson Fax.pdf ) in my browser, but won't work if I click on the link I inserted in the post. Any idea why?
Addendum #2: Let's see if the commenter's link works pasted here: Link
Addendum #3: Ok. Mike noticed something I didn't. Let's see if this link works. Yep, it does. Not sure how I missed that. I've been pulling what's left of my hair out trying to figure out why one works and the other doesn't. I'll have to try it again. Maybe tomorrow.
Let's try it again: Here's the link.
