    how about using Print and selecting Acrobat 8.0 as printer? I don't know why MS Office 2008 added it but seems redundant. If print works, then MS Word may be having problems with its toolbar...just a guess. I've seen one and I remember it also didn't work.

    Office 2007 is the Windows version... Office 2008 is the Mac version. Since 1998, the Mac version has always been labeled a year ahead of the Windows versions (1997 - 1998, 2000 - 2001, 2003 - 2004, 2007 - 2008). As expected, Office 2008 is more Mac-like and closely mimics the interface conventions introduced in iWork.

    Why use Acrobat when you use a Mac? Make your document in whatever application you want to use. When finished, Print it using the PDF option.

    Last time I looked, Acrobat CS3 and Leopard don't seem to play nice together in regard to 'printing to PDF' or something. I'm not sure if Adobe (or Apple) has fixed the observed problems between the two. By inference, I would theorize that the problem would extend to Office 2008 too if your platform is Leopard. Tiger and CS2 don't have this particular quirk.

    I am not so familiar with how Word works but if it is capable of saving your file as an .eps, then you can use your Acrobat's distiller and create a PDF from there-that's if you have the Pro version. If it works, I guess Word is the culprit.

    I find it difficult reading your post because your signature is bigger than it. Try to tone it down by making the font small and changing the color to black. Also, as this thread suggests, limit your signature to Mac related items only. I believe I emailed you about this before. I am not trying to play moderator here as I've been recently accused of, but I think as a long time member of PhilMUG, it is my responsibility to help and keep this forum in order without waiting for the moderators to step in. Just my small contribution. Cheers.

    Adobe Acrobat 8 is not compatible with Leopard yet. Adobe promised a fix at the start of this year but as of today there's still none.

    You're better off using Mac OSX pdf print dialog in the meantime.

    P.S. - don't we also have a rule regarding taglish/text speak?
