Can anyone walk me through the steps required to save a drawing as a PDF
file using desktop? We are looking to send drawings to clients but we don't
have Acrobat. Any easy-to-follow help would be very appreciated. Thanks in

Hi there,
Before the inevitable onslaught of "you should search the newsgroup for
this" replies comes flying your way, I'll tell you that we use Pdf995 here
(http://www.PDF995.COM) and it works great. You could download that (it's
free) and then install it (follow the on-screen directions) and then you'll
be able to print to a pdf from adt. We do it all the time and it gives us
nice results.

Hope that helps.


If it ain't fun, it ain't worth it!
