[Athen] Microsoft 2007 Office Add-in: Microsoft save as PDF.

I am going to wait until I have the full version of Office 2007 loaded onto my machine before committing to an add-in of any sort.

As for advances in OO -- I have a feeling that with Vista basically flopping and most people uninterested in upping to Office 2007 that OO will start to fill a widening void.

But Dann,

if only OpenOffice had an outline view....sigh!
I have never tried its PDF capabilities - does it tag and retain true columns when it writes to PDF? I would guess it should.

Regarding the Microsoft add-in PDF version, they offer it as a free download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=F1FC413C-6D89-4F15-991B-63B07BA5F2E5&displaylang=en . They had legal problems with Adobe back in June 2006, and pulled it out of the "boxed product." It is supposed to tag and handle TOC, Bookmarks etc. See http://blogs.msdn.com/cyndy_wessling/archive/2005/10/08/478419.aspx and http://blogs.msdn.com/brian_jones/archive/2006/06/16/634302.aspx.
I have not yet tried it, but hope to soon.
