You're right; both of these methods work -
when the message stated 'convert', I wasn't thinking 'print' [
oops ;-) ]
Yes 'printing to file' is a great way to change any document to an
editable one -
[I'm sure there are exceptions to this - I've used the word
'any' so those knowing the exceptions will come forth anon]

Another way, but i think this is only on Gnu&Linux (such as Ubuntu,

File - Print - "Print to file"
this way embeds all the fonts and stuff into the Pdf image. It's a bit
more awkward because you have to play around with the different tabs in the
printer dialogue-box. Anne's method is the one i usually go for
File - "Export as Pdf"
This way gives you tons more options such as how much compression and what
type, whether to add PDF/A1 to help people with screen-readers be able to
read the document more easily. It even gives an option of adding the .odt
into the Pdf so that LibreOffice users can edit the file more easily.
Non-LibreOffice users just don't see the editable file hidden inside.
