PDFs note - Making PDF copies of documents (including emails with attachments) one by one using Nuance Power PDF on a Windows computer

1. If not already installed, install Nuance Power PDF software, available from www.nuance.co.uk/for-individuals/by-product/pdf/index.htm

2. Open the email or other file on your computer that you wish to make a PDF copy of, and select Print. A print panel will then appear. In the print panel there will be a drop down list where you can select the printer you wish to print on. This drop-down list will include all the physical printers you have attached to your computer and, in addition, it will include a special printer named Nuance PDF. You should select this as the printer to use. Then click Print ( or OK or Go or whatever button it is in your program which starts the "print" process).  

3. You will be prompted to specify the destination file. Navigate to the appropriate folder and enter the name to be given to the PDF copy you are creating - e.g. 2014-03-15   Email at 10.32 John Smith to Jane Jones and click Save. 



4. If the file is an email which contains one or more attachments, you should then open the first attachment and select Print. A print panel will appear in which you should again select a printer named Nuance PDF and click Print ( or OK or Go or whatever button it is in your program which starts the "print" process).  

5. You will be prompted to specify the destination file. 



Click on the file previously created 2014-03-15   Email at 10.32 John Smith to Jane Jones and click Save. 


6. You will be prompted with this panel:



select the Append to existing file option and click OK.


7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each attachment. You should end up with a single PDF  2014-03-15    Email at 10.32 John Smith to Jane Jones containing the email message followed by each attachment.
