PDF - Print versus Publish

Many word processing packages have a "Publish to PDF" feature. While this is useful for preserving complex formatting such as hyperlinks, it is not recommended for use with any ECF document that will be acted upon by a subsequent user, including: (1) Any proposed order or judgment that will be submitted to the court via Order Upload, which should be flattened before submission by choosing "Print" and selecting Adobe PDF as the printer; and (2) A motion for relief from the automatic stay filed on LBF #720.80, which must be saved in Adobe using "Save As". In most instances, word processing documents should be converted to PDF by choosing "Print" and then selecting Adobe PDF as the printer.
