Convert Word Documents to PDF with Automator

I got a lot of Microsoft Word Documents form one of our professors at KTSI. But Evernote only supports text recognition inside PDFs. So I converted all Word Documents to PDF with the Mac OS X Automator.

How to convert Word Documents to PDF:

  1. Open Automator under Mac OS X
  2. Add a “Get Specified Finder Items” object
  3. Select the Word Documents
  4. Add another “Convert Format of Word Documents” object
  5. Set the Format to ” Portable Document Format (PDF)”
  6. Now click run and the Automator will convert all your Word Documents and you can find them in the same folder as the Word Documents
