Answers / Create PDF
I try to save a PDF file in Adobe Reader format and the file winds up being saved in wordpad format, which is unreadable.

Good to know - there is no "Adobe Reader format".There is "PDF". PDF is the file format that both Adobe Reader and Acrobat opens.Adobe Reader cannot create a PDF so you must be using some other application / process to save to PDF.If the format is DOC, TXT or RTF Wordpad can open it. As PDF is a binary file format if Wordpad "opens" a PDF what is rendered won't be readable.So, you will need to post back here to this question thread with exactly what application you are using to try to create PDF files. We can go from there eh. Be well...
I opened a PDF file from a website and it came up in Adobe Reader. When I save it, Adobe Reader format is specified. When I try to open it from my file, it comes up unreadabvle in wordpad. I have never used wordpad in my life, so I do not know why it opens up in a different format than the one I saved it with.
thanks for the comment,

Are you trying to open a PDF file with Wordpad? If yes then of course what is rendered is gobble- gook. PDF is a binary file format and applications like Wordpad cannot make heads or tails of binary. To open a PDF always use Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
