    I have found in the past if I try and save a page on the internet that when I go back it is gone. I find it so much easier to make a permanent file or pdf. It doesn't matter what program you are in as long as you have the option to print. I have used pdf995 for the past 10 years. I took online classes which meant sending my papers to the instructor. Everyone has a different word program. I always wanted them to look just like I typed them and not to move around or change font.

    The program is free. When you are saving your file, it does have but one advertisement. No big deal. I used it that way for years. Finally, I spent the $10.00 and got the key.

    How it works. You download two small files. When you find a free patter of something you want to save, you click on print. It usually shows your printer. I will now show an icon that says pdf. Click on the icon. It will pop up and ask you what you want to name it just like a regular file.

    This is good to know. I love when pdf files are used, because when people post downloads with Microsoft word I can't even look at them and it is a bummer!

    That's true. Everytime I pay a bill on line, I make a pdf of the payment and put it in a folder.
