    say i have a program that formats a typed document automatically. like it spaces everything perfect, bolds what needs to be bolded and things of this nature.

    i want to print 5 copies of the 90 page document at kinkos or somewhere similar but i know those stores will not have the program so it wouldnt be able to read the file.

    can i somehow import this file into a redily available program like adobe acrobat and have it keep the formating?

    you just answered your own question... Import it into a program they know. Acrobat, or MS Word are popular

    you want the Adobe Distiller. It emulates a printer to create an Acrobat document. So you go File > Print, select the Distiller, then set your settings, and it creates the document exactly how it would print. You can then give that to kinkos or wherever for the actual printing.
