Depending on the version of Microsoft® Word, or the device you are running Microsoft® Word on, section breaks and orientation changes mid-document can create PDF conversion issues. Users often run into the issue of a single Word doc being saved as a series of PDF files, one for each section break or page orientation change, when they use the Save As PDF feature in Microsoft® Word. You often see sections breaks and page orientation changes occurring in large Word document reports, both in academic and professional circumstances.

The built-in PDF converter in Microsoft® Word is not the most effective converter for complex Word documents. ConvertMyFiles is specifically designed to tackle complex Microsoft® documents, whether you wish to convert to PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, BMP or GIF. The example Word document below is one such file that you’d be better off converting through ConvertMyFiles. This file has three section breaks, two orientation changes and a large, complex table.

Using the built-in PDF converter in Microsoft® Word – the Save As PDF feature – users might receive three separate output files.

Rather than the single PDF document that ConvertMyFiles produces. In addition, ConvertMyFiles will maintain the document structure in the PDF file so you’ll still be able to navigate quickly between sections. All Microsoft® Office documents converted to PDF through ConvertMyFiles will still have the hyperlinks, bookmarks and searchable content that was present in the Word document.
