SAVING WORD DOC TO PDF INCORRECT
« on: July 20, 2020, 03:25:31 am »
Suddenly when I save my book's manuscript in Word to PDF, the first chapter opens on left instead of right side. I've had this in the past and had to add extra pages, but this manuscript has already been printed as paperback. It's the same one that has been in print on Ingram Spark and I'm doing a revision. It just happens out of the blue.

    Instead of saving with File->Save As->PDF, try using File->Print->PDF.

    It didn't make any difference. I tried adding blank pages as that sometimes works to no avail

    In Word 2016 I use File -> Export, then PDX/XPS, and it works every time.

    Don't do File -> SaveAs and select PDF.
