I think there are a lot of open source software in terms of creating a PDF file... i just dont remmber the names..
budazz is right, there are a TON of free softwares out there. Just make sure that you read the terms carefully, some of them create watermarks on your document.
CutePDF is also good. Google for it.
Yes there are lots of free ones out there.
Just Google it and you'll be amazed.
Most of them are a virtual printer driver, that don't actualy print but make a pdf file.
Just use OpenOffice.org. It can save "automagically" to PDF, as can WordPerfect suite...
I use PrimoPDF. It works for me!
I use WordPerfect at my grandparents. At home I use Acrobat 6.0.6 Professional for Mac OS X on my 10.2.8 (eMac).
I use Open Office and Primo PDF. Both free and both easy to use.
If you're looking for a whole office/text editing suite, give open office a try - I use the Windows version and the Linux version on another...
If you just need to convert the pdf's from MS Office, and you don't want to fight with a learning curve, give PrimoPDF a try. All you have to do is build your document, say in word, then hit print, and select PrimoPDF as your printer.
I've had nice results.
Jaws system is good tool for this pls try
All adobe professionals has that capability. Also Abby has a converter which can perform both way conversion (such as word to pdf and pdf to word and lots of other formats). Foxit professional also has that capability.It's not a major issue now a days.
I've been looking for a program that converts HTML to .pdf. And your right, there are a ton of them. I want one that I can not only convert HTML, but import the hyperlinks as well. I've tried a few of the ones mentioned here, but they don't import the hyperlinks.
Do you know of any software that does or any suggestions to how it can be done.
I recommend PDFCreator bcoz it is totally free without any adwares or limitations. If you have office 2007, u can also create pdf without installing any other software.
I use "ABBYY PDF Transformer 2.0 "
it is nice tool for "pdf-operations" for me,
I have Open Office on my PC mainly for PDF conversion. Lol.
I NEVER use it to make my documents and stuff. I use MS Office.
