Why do I need to change DOCX to PDF?

PDF is a highly useful file type that allows you to share documents while ensuring that the formatting stays the same. While DOCX must be opened in one of the latest versions of Word. If you open such a document with OpenOffice Writer which is a free Microsoft Word alternative, the text formatting is likely to be lost.

What’s more, when working with legal or contractual documents, a PDF also has the added virtue of ensuring that the recipient is not able to change any of the content without your approval or knowledge. While working with DOC or DOCX formats, anyone can easily edit files.

PDFs are more convenient for business and study, which is why one might need to convert DOCX to PDF.
