You can get a similiar result exporting ms-word docs to html. Then using html2ps
to convert the file to postscript. Convert the postscript to PDF using ps2pdf
something like ...
- export file to html using MSWord/OO to say file.doc->file.html
- using cygwin on windows (or copy file to *nix sys)
- perl /usr/bin/html2ps file.html > file.ps
- ps2pdf file.ps
If you have cygwin on a MS system this works OK (especially if you dont have access to a *nix). The above suggestion works a treat if you have OO/*nix combo.
It works for text. But I have not tried text/graphics or plain graphics. Anyone had experience with graphics using this approach?
