Change Word® Setting and Export PDFs in High Resolution
After you save your document in Word® format, you can go to File tab, Save as Adobe PDF. This creates a low resolution PDF file that is suitable for proofing and reading online. It is not suitable for printing or for opening in photo editing software where a high resolution file is needed. For printing, the fonts should be embedded and the images should not be compressed.

- Choose the Save Menu, under Preserve fidelity when sharing this document, click Embed fonts in the file.
- Chose the Advanced Menu.
