I'm not sure whther I should be posting this in the programming topic but I am posting it here for people who may not read that topic.

I suspect that there are people who need to regularly convert standard Word documents to pdfs.  The simplest way I have found is to have a macro, such as the one below added to the Word toolbar.  This macro will determine your current printer and, after converting the document to a pdf, revert the settings to that printer.  This macro will apply your default settings for Word and for PDF reDirect but you will still have to manually save the pdf document (and the Word document).

    strActivePrinter = ActivePrinter              'Checks for Active Printer
    ActivePrinter = "PDF reDirect v2"             'Changes Printer Driver to PDF reDirect v2
    Application.PrintOut FileName:="", Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, Item:= _
        wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, Pages:="", PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _
        Collate:=True, Background:=True, PrintToFile:=False, PrintZoomColumn:=0, _
        PrintZoomRow:=0, PrintZoomPaperWidth:=0, PrintZoomPaperHeight:=0
    ActivePrinter = strActivePrinter              'Restores Original Active Printer
End Sub
