Acrobat X can convert a variety of file types to PDF (including convert HTML to PDF, convert web page to PDF and convert Word to PDF) and then open them in a document window. The list of supported file types includes all the common vector and image formats.
To convert a file to PDF:
TIP: If you are avoiding toolbars for some reason, you can also access these conversions by choosing from the File > Create submenu.
TIP: Acrobat's Preferences include a large collection of controls that determine how it converts files to PDF. The default values for these controls are sensible and should generally be left as is. However, as you gain experience, you may find it interesting to look at them. On the Mac, choose Acrobat > Preferences, or in Windows, choose Edit > Preferences, to access the Convert to PDF options.
This summary is excerpted from chapter 4 of the Adobe Acrobat X for Windows and Macintosh: Visual Quickstart Guide by John Deubert, published by Peachpit Press.
