Re: Playbook to convert to PDF?

Am trying this workaround, an online service that converts any file to PDF

http://www.freepdfconvert.com/

 

The only catch at the moment (other than difference between free & paid modes) is it

returns the PDF file in a zip format.

 

Do you know of a way I can open a ZIP file in Playbook so I can extract the PDF easily?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Playbook to convert to PDF?

To convert a document to a PDF requires a copy of Adobe Acrobat or similar program. I've not seen anything about Adobe offering an App to convert to PDFs for any platform yet. You could always send it to yourself, open on a computer, generate the PDF and then send the PDF back to yourself as a work around if you really want the doc in PDF format on your PB.

Files & Foilders (see sig below) can convert a .doc to .pdf via its Google Docs feature. Just paste the .doc file to Google Docs as .pdf, then copy it back to the PlayBook. It can also convert to and from many other formats: Excel, PowerPoint, CSV, Plain text etc.

Oh and @tiratore: Files & Folders can open .ZIP files too.
