Publisher Help at PrepressX

Did you know that there is a free Microsoft® Office® Add-In that enables you to create press-ready PDF files without Adobe® Acrobat®? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could direct your Microsoft Office Publisher® clients to submit press-ready PDF files instead of their native collection of PC files? All without having to purchase any additional software! Well it is possible, we have all that information - and more - for you right now.

Check out some of the many articles that help you with your MS Office Publisher production needs at

Free 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Save as PDF

This download allows you to export and save to the PDF format in eight 2007 Microsoft Office programs. It also allows you to send files as e-mail attachments in the PDF format in a subset of these programs. For download and installation instructions click here.

Publish as PDF

To export as a PDF in Microsoft Office Publisher, we are going to use the free Microsoft Save as PDF Add-In. This will include a publishing function in the File menu options. We will demonstrate how to do this here.

Print as PDF

This print method generates a PDF directly from the Print menu, without the need for an intermediate PostScript® file. It requires Adobe Acrobat to be installed on your computer system. It also takes advantage of the custom Press-Ready Adobe Setting made in Acrobat Distiller. For more information click here.

Converting Colors

We demonstrate how to convert Color Schemes/Accent Colors to process color builds or even to Pantone spot colors.
