DOC Document Format DOC Converter
DOC and DOCX are the most common word processing file formats. DOC was primarily used by Microsoft for its Word program until 2003. Since 2007, Word has used DOCX as standard, although you can still open DOC files and can still save to the older format. DOC and DOCX are used for formatted text documents like reports, letters or resumes. They can include pictures, charts, and graphs, as well as plain or formatted text, and can also contain an editable template.
Word is part of Microsoft Office, which is available as a paid software application or accessed online with a Microsoft 365 subscription. Microsoft Office was designed for the Windows operating system, but you can also install Office apps on other operating systems like Apple’s macOS and Google’s ChromeOS. A basic free ‘Word for the web’ program is also available online for Microsoft account holders. DOC files are easy to share and print, and can be opened by most word processing programs, including LibreOffice, Apple Pages, and Google Docs, as well as by Microsoft Word.
PDF Document Format PDF Converter
PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).
PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.
How to convert a DOC to a PDF file?
- 1. Choose the DOC file that you want to convert.
- 2. Select PDF as the the format you want to convert your DOC file to.
- 3. Click "Convert" to convert your DOC file.
