What is PDF and How to create a file in PDF format with your Computer?


What is PDF?
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, graphics, and other information needed to display it. In 1991, Adobe Systems' co-founder John Warnock outlined a system called "Camelot" that developed into PDF.

Adobe Systems made the PDF specification available free of charge in 1993. PDF was a proprietary format controlled by Adobe, until it was officially released as an open standardon July 1, 2008, and published by the International Organization for Standardizationas ISO 32000-1:2008, at which time control of the specification passed to an ISO Committee of volunteer industry experts. In 2008, Adobe published a Public Patent License to ISO 32000-1 granting royalty-freerights for all patents owned by Adobe that are necessary to make, use, sell, and distribute PDF compliant implementations. However, there are still some proprietary technologies defined only by Adobe, such as Adobe XML Forms Architectureand JavaScript for Acrobat, which are referenced by ISO 32000-1 as normative and indispensable for the application of the ISO 32000-1 specification. These proprietary technologies are not standardized and their specification is published only on Adobe’s website. The ISO committee is actively standardizing many of these as part of ISO 32000-2.

If you've already completed the document you'd like to convert, just open the document. Now, click "File." in the top left corner of your computer's screen.. And click on "Save as", in the box below write your ducement name e.g Index.pdf, in the second box select PDF as you will see many formats, XPS, HTML, DOC, TXT etc and then press enter key, thats all..

Note: You need to install Adobe Viewer for viewing your PDF ducement, but if you already installed no need to re-install again
