I am now feeling soooooo sorry that I installed Office Word 2007.

The whole darn screen is so different. And as much as I dislike Word
for major projects, I do use it for short one- or two-page jobs.

Now I can't get it to work correctly with Primo PDF so I an get a pdf
file. Word 2003, FrameMaker, etc., all worked with Primo PDF just fine.

Normally, when you tell the system to print to Primo PDF, you get an
info box prompting you as to where and what filename to use. But not
with Word 2007. Yep, Primo PDF is there with the other printers in
the list of available printers, and when I choose it and then click
"Print", the message that x number of pages were printed zooms across
the bottom of the screen, but there was no info box for me to
designate a name or destination.

I did a search of all pdf files on the terminal, but no files created
at the exact time I tried to print to Primo PDF are in the list.

And yes, I also tried to Save-As the Word file into pdf, but the pdf
option is NOT listed among the choices.

What gives?
