To Convert a WordPerfect File to PDF (using "Publish-to-PDF" feature - WordPerfect Version 9 or higher):

Note:  This option can be used if you do not have Adobe Acrobat's PDFWriter/Distiller installed. This option is not recommended because the file created is unnecessarily large.

  1. Create document in WordPerfect.
     

  2. Choose File > Publish to PDF....
     

  3. In the Publish to file dialog box, choose a file location and file name. (Remember the file location and file name as you will need to browse to find this file when you electronically file the document in CM/ECF.)
     

  4. Click OK. By default, WordPerfect adds the extension .pdf.
