Very commonly i need to convert PowerPoint or Word documents to PDF. Although there are multiple ways and options available , I wanted to know if we can automate my intended preferred way of saving as PDF using Microsoft native Save-As dialog box.
Can we have a button or a right click menu option to convert the selected files(s) to PDF and save in the source folder with the same name (.PDF extension) (all in one go), using the save-as dialog box (screenshot below).
It might be possible via Word's scripting interface, but this is more a question for a forum about Word than Opus. Opus can run pretty much any command or script, but whether Word can do it and what the command or script is, I don't know.
Actually, this may work if Office's PDF virtual printer is installed:
Print TO "Microsoft Print to PDF"
Worked here on a .docx file, at least. Still involves a bit of clicking and typing to specify where to save the new file, and also waiting for Word to load, but a bit less than opening the document in Word first.
The "printer" name may vary with different languages. It'll be the same one as in the list of printers in Windows or anything that lets you select a printer.
