Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS

Yesterday I was creating user and install guides for some software we’re wrapping up. Typically I use the open source PDFCreator print driver from Word, but it doesn’t create bookmarks from headings in the Word documents and the images lose quality. Not to worry… 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS does this and more and all from within Windows programs for FREE.

More on XPS format


  1. Great Post. Ya the default pdf programs sometimes just create a simple pdf file without the bookmarks.

    I found this to be a pain as well. I use a pdf program called gDoc Fusion and it does a great job of creating pdf’s with bookmarks.

    I will give word 2007 a try as well.
