multi-section word doc saving as 5 different pdf docs RRS feed

  • Question

  • my word doc has several portrait and landscape pages separated by 'next page section breaks' into 5 sections...when i try to save is as a pdf, it saves it as 5 separate pdf documents.

    relatedly, when i try to print the word doc, it sends it to the printer as 5 separate print jobs...

  • This is very strange. How are you saving to PDF? Using Word's built-in converter? Some other method?
