Conversion of word to PDF with portrait and landscape pages

Processor: Intel

Hi, I have a word document that has portrait and landscape pages. When I convert it to PDF, the portrait and landscape pages are generated as two different PDF files. Is there any work around for this? Thanks!

AFAIK there is no option other than to assemble the final PDF from the
separate parts using Preview 3.0 or later, Acrobat, or one of the other PDF
utilities that enable combining PDFs.

Afraid Taz is correct.

Now if they were oriented the same way. even if they had page breaks, if 
you used the converter that came with Word2008 (Save As.... > PDF) you 
would be able have all pages in same PDF. Problem is between 
MS/Adobe/Apple and they are all like the old chex cereal commercial "Not 
me, I want eat it", "Not me I want eat it", let's give it to Mikey he'll 
eat anything."

Problem is rather than working together to fix the issue, they are all 
trying to figure out, which one is Mikey."

I wish software companies word get over trying to place blame and work 
together to fix issues. Maybe they wouldn't have such a bad rap.

Hi Phillip;

Thanks for the vote of confidence :-) & I share your sentiments re such 
matters, but I can't help picking on your analogy... It seems that many 
people misunderstood that commercial :-)

The actual dialog is more along the lines of:

Kid 1: "Let's give it to Mikey."

Kid 2: "He won't eat it. He hates everything."

The point of the commercial is that Mikey *does* eat it & likes it... And it 
wasn't Chex, it was Life ;-)

well I meant well and even if you straightened out the analogy, it even 
more effective as one for the situation with Apple/MS/Adobe.

I've no doubt you meant well as you always do :-) Please don't be offended,
it just happens to be one of my peculiarities. I've fought an uphill battle
since that commercial was first aired. Why I've embarked on that particular
crusade is something even my therapist can't comprehend :-)

Changing graphic to floating shoots it off the page
In Word 2008, if I change an in-line graphic to floating, it shoots off the page to a position where it disappears from the Layout view. A quick undo and it's back where it was.
