With most softwares, converting a file to pdf will usually require you going online and doing some stuff in a particular website before your intending file can be can be changed to pdf (portable document file), and not only that, sometimes you have to pay.
Wonderfully, this article illustrates a smarter way of converting an MS WORD document or any other document to pdf with just your android phone.
In this article I recommended two ways to do this conversion:
Changing the file extensionChanging the file extension of any document ,say from .docx to .pdf, is a smart simple way of converting a document to pdf .To do this,
CONSTRAINTSThough this very method works for some files, but there are documents even when you change the file extension will not be opened by a pdf reader because is some sort of protected or encrypted, rather an error message pops up; Something like this:
telling you that you;r pdf reader is unable to open the file.
The summary here is that, you can try this method for some documents but not all documents, especially Ms word documents.
Therefore I recommend the 2nd method as a more feasible method for all document including MS word documents.
Note: in the following subsequent steps, I am going to be using an MS word document file as an example.
3rd step: Tap FILE then tap SAVE AS
4th step: finally, select the option “pdf”
NOTE: after you must have selected the .pdf file extension, the old document’s file extension will also change in the file manager location.Go back to your file manager and select the document again; your Adobe Reader or any other pdf reader opens the document and that’s it!
I sincerely encourage everyone reading this article to deem this method a very useful one as most platforms will require internet data consumption. The first method - i.e. by changing the file extension directly from your file manager -will not work for some documents especially MS word documents; but you can try it with other documents. Apart from converting documents to pdf, the WPS Office App can also edit the content of most document.
