Converting a DOCX File to PDF You are going to create an Automator script that will handle the DOCX to PDF conversion for you. Launch Automator on your Mac by clicking on Launchpad in your Dock and searching for “Automator.” 2. When Automator launches, select the “Applications” folder as the location for saving your script, and click on “New Document.” 3. On the following screen select “Service” as the document type, and click on “Choose” to create a new document that is a service. You are ready to create your script.
First, select “files or folders” from the “Service receives selected” drop-down menu, and then select “Finder” from the “in” drop-down menu. Now, drag and drop the action labeled as “Get Specified Finder Items” from the left-panel over to the workflow that is on the right. Drag and drop an action named “Run Shell Script” from the left-panel onto the right-panel that is called workflow. Focus on the Run Shell Script action in the workflow, and click on the drop-down menu labeled as “Pass input” and change it to “as arguments.” 8. Here comes the main part of the procedure.

The whole script seems to remove my text formatting. For example the file I have to make a PDF of is always one pag with a title in a box. The box is nowhere to be found after using your method. It is however the closest I got to finding something that does what I need it to do. Thanks for that.
