Saving in Different File FormatsTo save a file so that it can be used with an earlier version of Word, save it as a Word 97-2003 Document.To save a file in a format that can be opened in the widest variety of programs, use one of the following-Rich Text Format (*.rtf) This preserves the documents formatting.Plain Text (*.txt) This preserves only the text.
PDF and XPSIf you want people to be able to view a document, but not change it, you can save the document in one of two formats:PDF (*.pdf) This format is preferred by commercial printing facilities. You should also use this format if you know that recipients have a PDF reader, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, installed on their computer.XPS (*.xps) This format precisely renders all fonts, images, and colors on recipients computers.
PDF and XPS, cont.Both are designed to deliver documents that are electronic representations of how they will look when printed.Text and graphics are static and not easily edited so these formats are ideal for legal documents.The files are no longer Word documents so they cant be edited in Word.
