I have Office 2008 on my mac.  How do I enable the Adobe Acrobat export to PDF toolbar in Office? The toolbar showed up in Word but is not there in Excel.

Does it actually work in Word 2008?

Well, there are a few files you need for these toolbars to showup.  Here is the path to these files:


/Applications/Microsoft Office X/Office/Startup/Word/PDFMaker.dot
/Applications/Microsoft Office X/Office/Startup/Excel/PDFMaker.xla
/Applications/Microsoft Office X/Office/Startup/PowerPoint/PDFMaker.ppa

If you are missing these files, it means that there was a problem with your Acrobat install.  The only solution is to uninstall and reinstall Acrobat.

However, there is a much better way to save to PDF built into Mac OSX.  When you are on a document, you go to File --> Print, then in the lower left corner there is a button for PDF, click it and then select Save As PDF from the drop down.  Viola!

The thing being that Office 2008 does not support VBA which is how those add-ins work, so having them available would be useless anyway.
