Save Your Documents to PDF and XPS

2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS is a Microsoft Office document utility tool that allows you to export and save your files in the PDF and XPS formats. This app works with eight of Microsoft Office’s 2007 versions of programs. You can also use it for your emails as other free PDF tools online. If you need to use XPS and PDS a lot or if you prefer saving your documents in these formats more, then this is a handy and convenient tool for you. 

The Height of Electronic Ease

A PDF is a Portable Document Format that turns text and graphics into an electronic image that looks like a printed document. PDF files can be viewed, printed, and electronically transmitted—and may even include a variety of content besides text and graphics. An XPS, on the other hand, is an XML Paper Specification, a document management software that is able to print, convert, view and annotate XML documents in the Windows platform. PDF and XPS sound quite similar since both can be used by anyone regardless of their OS but there are key differences between the two. One is that XPS can only be opened using a browser, while PDF can be opened with a browser or a reader program. Plus, XPS can support annotations, while PDF is better for editing, viewing, compressing documents.

To Get PDF or XPS

Both of these formats are pretty handy to have and use, though, since they allow you to create documents that can’t be easily edited and can be shared across devices, no matter what kind and what system they have. However, as convenient as they sound, not all document programs can create them. Saving files into PDF or XPS will sometimes require specific programs or even utility apps to be able to do just that. Fortunately, 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS exists for this purpose. A lightweight tool meant to work in conjunction with Microsoft Office, 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in lets you save and even export your work in the formats of XPS and PDF without needing a file converter. This program is compatible with all of the 2007 versions of MS Access, Excel, InfoPath, OneNote, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio, and Word. You can even use this to attach PDFs and XPS files in emails.

Not That Necessary

2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS is definitely a neat tool to have with you for PDF and XPS needs. However, its limited reach pulls it back down on the list of apps you can’t live without. For one, it’s only for 2007 programs, which is a shame for users of other Microsoft Office version users because the program works on Windows Vista and Windows XP. Plus, it can only be used for Microsoft programs. There are better utility apps compatible with most office suites.
