How to Convert Word to PDF in SharePoint Online?
Here is a nifty trick to convert word documents to PDF in SharePoint Online without using any 3rd party tools.
Prerequisites: Make sure the library is in “Classic Experience”. You can change the UI from modern experience to classic by clicking on the “Return to classic SharePoint” link at the bottom-left corner of the page or by going to the list settings >> Advanced Settings >>Set the “List experience” to “Classic experience.”
- Navigate to your SharePoint Online library where the Word document is stored. Click on the little three dots next to the document you wish to convert.
- In the preview panel, click on the little “menu” icon and then choose “Print to PDF” menu item.
- This converts the Word document into PDF and prompts with a “Your PDF is ready to print” message. Click on the “Open PDF” button to view the converted PDF.
The converted PDF document will be opened in a new tab. You can download the PDF from the toolbar in the top-right corner.
