What is a PDF???

  •   PDF stands for portable document format.
  •  If you save as a PDF, just about any computer anywhere can open your document — it’s a universal format.
  •  When you send a PDF, it’s impossible to make changes — which a lot of people like when they are sending around a document. However, this means that if you open it you can not make changes either. So you may want to first save as a regular MS Word document so you can edit later on.
