I want to convert boardmaker boards to pdf file using adobe software but need advice on which version of adobe I should order. My school district has limited funds in the aftermath of Katrina so I need the least expensive that will be able to do the job. I want to be able to send a pdf copy of the communication boards to parents, teachers, etc. who do not have Boardmaker software. Thanks for the advice.

Which OS are you using? If you're on Mac OS X, i believe you can convert anything on screen to a pdf. That feature is built into OS X.

If you're purchasing, Adobe Professional will give you the capability to create the pdf. On a Windows platform, you simply install the Adobe software. When you are then in BoardMaker, you select File > Print. In your printer choices, you will now see Adobe as a "printer". When you select it, it prints the BoardMaker file to Adobe, creating a .pdf.

I believe the latest Acrobat Adobe Professional is 7.0.

If you're on a Windows machine, you can download a *free* program called PDF Writer. (Google it...I don't remember where I got it.) Once installed, you can go to print your Boardmaker board, and choose Acrobat PDF Writer instead of the name of your printer. It will change the file into a PDF, and save it as such. It works GREAT!
Hope this helps.
