The Portable Document Format, or PDF, is a file format created by Adobe. It is widely used because fonts and images can be embedded and compressed into one file, which makes sharing the files easy. PDF files can be imported as images into many different documents. This helps to avoid font problems when fonts used in the PDF are not installed on the device on which it is being displayed. PDF files can be imported into Microsoft Word documents to create graphic layouts for things such as publications or newsletters.
