    Publish as PDF, and PDF formatting questions.

    Our CSO uses a laptop from another company and does not have InfoPath installed.  However, he is the person who will need to review/approve security incident reports and we do not own the version of Sharepoint that includes forms services.

    I have built a form template for the SIR, but I want to have a button on it that allows the creator to publish the form to Sharepoint as a PDF.  Is that possible or will they have to do it from the file menu in InfoPath?  Or, is there a way to set up a workflow to convert the document to PDF automatically when it is submitted? 

    Also, I don't like the format of the PDF and would like to change it so that it looks like the print view.  Is that possible?

    I am not a developer, so will not understand answers that involve coding nor do I have developers tools.  I am hoping to find a solution that is built in (using rules and/or conditional formatting, etc) to InfoPath or conversion that can be set up in a workflow using Sharepoint Designer

    Someone more familiar with SharePoint workflows will have to speak to whether it can do a PDF conversion, but in InfoPath the non-code solution is to have the user do that from the file menu in InfoPath. If you'd like it to use the print view, you can print to PDF -- free CutePDF Writer will do this.

    You can convert to PDF as part of a workflow using a third party utility. I have worked on one, which is available at http://www.muhimbi.com/Products/PDF-Converter-for-SharePoint/Summary.aspx
