How do I create text-searchable PDFs?

The Judicial Committee on Information Technology (members appointed by the Texas Supreme Court) standards require all eFiled documents to be in a text-searchable PDF. Documents in Microsoft Word can be saved as text searchable PDFs. Simply click “Save As” and a new window will pop up. Under the text field for the file name is a drop down menu. Click the drop down menu and select “PDF.” Once you have clicked “Save”, you will have a PDF document that is text searchable. That document will have a “.pdf” extension in the file name.
