Default export only the selected portion of a Word doc to a PDF file

I have a Word doc (using 2007 or 2010) that I want to break up into several pdf files. I can use File->SaveAs to a pdf file extension, but that exports the whole Word doc to a single pdf.

How can I select an area in Word, then just export that part of the file to a pdf? Alternately, if there was some fancy converter that recognized a delimiter and somehow generated all the filenames, that would be fine, but not necessary.



Thanks....Lyle

When you use Save As with the PDF format, the Save As dialogue displays an Options button. That gives access to the ability to save a selected range to PDF.
