(NT) What did you use to create these docs? Word can save as PDF.

- What program exactly?
- Most likely, it isn't free. So you have paid for support. What does their tech support say about your issues?
- I agree with wpgwpg. Word (from 2010 by default, 2007 with an add-on) can save any Word document as ,pdf. And a free 'pdf-printer' (like cutepdf) can make a pdf from any source you can print. So I see no need for any separate doc to pdf program, especially if paid.

As a side note: why Windows 8.1? There's a rather common understanding that 10 is better (maybe not better than 7, but surely better than 8 and 8.1).

PDF conversion

HELLO: I don't know how the Adobe doc to pdf works, however, in MS Word you can do a SaveAs routine and save as a pdf file. I use PrimoPDF and with that you use a Print routine and "Print" to a PDF file by selecting the PrimoPDF Printer in your Printer list (after you install Primo PDF that will appear)

You might try both of those routines to see if your Adobe will work. Also, IF ALL ELSE FAILS, you should have a HELP link on your menus.
