Creating a PDF File Using OpenOffice.org 3.0.1
Remember the days when you were applying for a job, and at the end of your application you were asked to submit your CV?
“No problem at all, I have it”, you thought. But, suddenly, you realized that they accept only PDF versions.
Uh oh, you are stuck?!
Don’t worry, everything has a solution.
I’m assuming that you have installed on your machine OpenOffice.org 3.0.1. If so, let us walk through the following simple steps for creating a PDF file.
1. Go ahead and open your CV, Resume or whatever document you like using OpenOffice.org 3.0.1. Look at figure (1) below.

2. Click on the Export Directly as PDF button from the tools bar.
In this case, the Export dialog box will show up as shown in figure (3).
4. Specify the name of the PDF file and where you would like to save it, and then press the Save button.
5. Go to the location where you have saved the PDF file and double click on that file to open it, in which case you will see something like shown in figure (4).
Just as simple as that.
