- To write a PDF file, you must first have Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or higher installed on your computer with distiller. Click on file from your task bar. Select Print. When the print dialog appears, check the box print to file, then from the drop down menu, select distiller as your printer. After you have selected distiller as your printer, in the upper right corner, click the properties button. This will open a distiller options window. There will be 3 tabs on the top. First select Layout. From the layout tab select either portrait or landscape as the way you want your paper to print.
