Thank you all for the information. All you computer people know well of what you speak, but for poor me I just get lost in all the jargon. SOOO BLESS YOU TOMT. I could understand your explanation and have copied and pasted your information to use for future attempts at PDFs. Thank you all for your explanation. I think i got some of it digested, but Tom's to me was most helpful.

You can save before or after you convert to PDF. I use LibreOffice, rather than OpenOffice. It's just a fork of OpenOffice, but better. Either allows you to open PDF, edit PDF, or export as PDF.

You don't have to do anything to save the original document that you're converting. If it was in a folder, it will still be there, unchanged, if all you do is close OpenOffice after you export to PDF. The new PDF document will be in you default save location, which is probably that same folder. It will also have the same name as the original document, but a pdf extension and icon.

OpenOffice will open any PDF file that isn't password protected. You can use Adobe, or any on of several free pieces of PDF software, but you can use OpenOffice, as well.

If you want OpenOffice to be your default PDF program, right click on the PDF file, click "open with" and then select OpenOffice.

Yu find a PDF file the same way you find any other. When you save one, t goes to you default folder. It will have a PDF icon. But if you don't have Adobe, it may have no icon until you assign it one. You open it by double clicking on it. If you have a default PDF program, such as Adobe, that program will automatically open it. If not, it will ask which program you want to use. Either select OpenOffice, or download Adobe.

PDF is a common format with published fiction, so it's good to be able to save as PDF, and to edit PDF. It's not a common format for sending back and forth to edit, however. It isn't difficult to do, but it's simply easier to edit in a good word processor.
