Typically, the person who creates the Ward Bulletin is not a person putting the info on the Ward (or Stake) website. This then requires the Ward (or Stake) website admin to get an electronic version of the material used for the bulletin (which will often include fonts and formats that are custom to the bulletin creator's computer) and then create the PDF file(s) since many of the bulletin creators can't (or don't know how) create the PDF versions themselves despite free PDF creation software is readily available.
Still with me?

I was just called yesterday to create our ward bulletin. Just have to say that I would love a tool like this. I personally don't have much desire to be "creative" with our bulletin. I want it to be accurate, and I would like to be able to update the information and produce each week's bulletin quickly and easily.
Regarding other things discussed in this thread - as far as I know, some overworked member of our Bishopric is responsible for updating our online ward website information on lds.org, and it never gets done. And I am capable of creating PDF's myself. :-) But I've been in IT for many years, so I may be unusual.
