My latest “Apple Peel” column is up at

Apple Peel: Creating PDF Files from Microsoft Word X in Mac OS X

It is about an issue with Microsoft Word and creating PDF files on the Macintosh that has, unfortunately, been with us for a long time. It’s about how Microsoft gets away not only with not fixing the many glaring bugs in its products, but even with blaming others (directly or indirectly) for the problems that these bugs create.

Feel free to comment on the column below.

    A first note following the comments of a reader… I should have made it clearer in my column that my “workaround” ONLY works fine if your document does NOT contain page orientation changes. If it does, there is NO WAY of producing a single PDF file using Word. You need to explore other alternatives.

    Applying my workaround to a document with multiple page orientations will, of course, destroy these page orientation changes, so be careful :).
