MAC > PC question

been working up some noob guides for Mac and PC users...ran into an issue...

transferred the Mac Word document to my PC to send to someone, but now all of the screenshots can't be viewed...get this error:

"QuickTime and a TIFF (LZW) decompressor are needed to view..."

i've searched just about every forum known to man, stll can't figure it out...anyone run into this before and know of a quick fix?

Re: MAC > PC question

thanks bro...i had considered that, but Word doesn't give me that option...i only have AcrobatViewer, and not the full prog, so i can't use Acrobat to convert

Re: MAC > PC question

Microsoft are too cheap to pay royalties to use LZW tiff compression on a PC. Use another format for the screen captures on the mac.

When you go to conferences and see big 'X's on the projection screen, you know someone got fucked by Gates for using a Mac.

i don't have that option when i click Print > maybe you need the full?

i shoulda prefaced all this by stating i'm using Word2000 and an older version of AcrReader...i've never updated due to slow connection speed/lack of interest in this crappy windows-machine

its not too big of a deal...more research online seems to indicate there isn't much you can do about...no plug-ins or codecs available...as he^ said, Gates just doesn't wanna pay royalites...oh well, it shouldn't be a problem since anyone using the tutorial will be on a Mac anyway

Re: MAC > PC question

What version of OS X are you running? In 10.3, even with 'no printer selected' you should see a 'Save As PDF...' button at the button of the File>Print window. Not sure where it is in 10.4.
