    When I convert a word document to PDF it does convert it however, there is sometimes the odd title that gets placed incorrectly which results in a lot of other content within the document going all over the place. The document I am editing is 400+ pages which I think might be causing this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, I am using Microsoft Word to save the document and then I simply click on export as PDF and go ahead with converting into a PDF file but the the issue occurs. I tend to find that converters do not work (online ones) also, most have a certain word document size limit which my document goes beyond. Do you know of any free converter software? Or any other solutions?

    I always use a free solution called PrimoPDF. It is very reliable and I've used it for years. Its method of working is that you select it as if it is a printer when you print.

    Download it here: http://www.primopdf.com

    You don't need to export it? Just save it as a pdf?
