[+] Printing To PDF

Often times it is desirable to print out the completed HUD Forms to a PDF file format for delivering via email.

Midland Business Services, Inc. has located the following PDF file generation software for such purposes - PDF995 which can be found on the web at www.PDF995.com.

According to their web site:
     "Pdf995 makes it easy and affordable to create professional-quality documents in the popular PDF file format. Its easy-to-use interface helps you to create PDF files by simply selecting the "print" command from any application, creating documents which can be viewed on any computer with a PDF viewer. Pdf995 supports network file saving, fast user switching on XP, Citrix/Terminal Server, custom page sizes and large format printing. Pdf995 is a printer driver that works with any Postscript to PDF converter. The pdf995 printer driver and a free Converter are available for easy download."     

This software functions as advertised. It can be installed as a selectable "Printer" on your system by following their simple download and installation instructions.

Printing the HUD Form Document Templates to the PDF995 "Printer" yields a complete PDF version of your file.

Note: The free PDF995 software requires that the user be shown an advertisers web-page each time a PDF file is generated. The complete PDF file generation occurs whether or not an internet connection is available.
   
[+] Forms No Longer Working in MS Word 2013

In its recent release of Office 2013, Microsoft decided to change the default setting of a user selectable option to ENABLED, rather than the previous setting of DISABLED in all prior releases.

We are planning to relase an updated version of our products by 4/22/2013 which addresses this problem.

In the meantime you can manually DISABLE this option in MS Word by taking the following steps:

Close all open MS Word documents.
Open MS Word
Create a blank, new, document
The ability to set/reset this option requires that a Word document be open.
Under the File menu - select Options
Locate the "General" tab in the Options window
Locate the "Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view" option.
If you have experienced licensing problems with a registered form, this option checkbox is probably CHECKED.
UNCHECK the checkbox for "Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view".
Click OK to get out of the option menu.
Close MS Word
Re-open your registered HUD document.
You should see proper operation of the form.
You may check for, and request, an updated version of your registered form(s) by using the "Check For Update" control button located in the top menu box of your registered form.

Thank you for your patience. We appreciate your business.
   
[+] No Option Provided To Enable Macros

If you receive the following, highlighted, notification in MS Word 2010 or later, your system is configured in such a way as to distrust files downloaded from the Internet or received via email.

This is a valuable Microsoft feature to reduce or eliminate malicious code from being inadvertently executed.

To allow your registered form(s) to Open and function properly you will need to place them in a Trusted Location on your computer.

NOTE: You should ONLY place files from a trusted source into a Trusted Location!

Follow the steps below to create a Trusted Location:
1.
Create a directory on your computer named "TrustedDocuments" (all one word)
It can be any name you like, but we prefer to use names without spaces - just in case.
2.
Copy the registered HUD forms (i.e. "HUD-1_Form.doc", HUD-1A_Form.doc", etc.) into the "TrustedDocuments" directory
3.
Close all MS Office applications (Word, Excel, etc.)
4.
Open MS Word
5.
Select "Word Options" (lower right)
6.
Select "Trust Center" (in left navigation pane)
7.
Select "Trust Center Settings" (Gray button on right of main window)
8.
Select "Trusted Locations" (in left navigation pane)
9.
Select "Add new location ..." ( bottom center of main window)
10.
Browse to the directory you created above ( "TrustedDocuments" )
11.
Click "OK"
12.
Click "OK"
13.
Close MS Word
14.
Go to the "TrustedDocuments" directory
15.
Double-click on the registered HUD form file.
16.
It should open and a pop-up should show your registration information
   
[+] New Forms for 2015

Midland Business Services, Inc. does not offer legal, real estate, and/or financial advice. We provide MS Word document templates in the format of the approved Federal Government's Real Estate Closing forms. You should consult a real estate attorney for specific rules and regulations regarding the use of the forms.

The All-Forms.com HUD forms are MS Word document templates which match those currently available via the HUD.org federal website. Our forms are compliant in format to those required after January 1, 2010. Our products have various levels of automation enabled for them such as calculations, printing without shading, etc. When we improve the levels of automation or correct bug fixes we offer updated versions to our registered owners upon their request.

When the new, 2015, real estate closing forms are officially released by the Federal Government, All-Forms.com will provide the new forms in MS Word document templates. We are currently investigating the levels of automation that we can deliver in these new Federal forms to provide maximum benefit to our clients.

We respect our clients privacy, and do not send unsolicited emails or correspondence to them. However - with the upcoming new Federal forms in 2015 we may, towards year's end, send out correspondence to our registered owners notifying them of the availability of form changes and updates.

We are monitoring the following Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) website - http://www.consumerfinance.gov - for the new Federal real Estate closing forms which will be required for closings after August 1, 2015.
