Free print to PDF software

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

I have a mac, and the option to save to pdf (instead of printing) is already there.

so no need for additional software.

Microsoft Office 2007 can do this, too!

Open Office also has an option to save to PDF

Well I don't have a Mac anymore :cry: and I don't use Microsoft if I can help it - that was the cause of my need for a print to pdf 'cos I have just installed Quickbooks and wanted to email my invoices but it has to be done via Outlook and I use Thunderbird :roll:

Print to pdf will be very handy for me at least!

There's a nifty utility called primopdf which you can get for free from http://www.primopdf.com/. This also installs a pdf printer but it has some built-in options for things like pre-press preparation, so could be useful even if you have the ability to save as pdf already.
Hope that's useful.

Not bad. Recently I have found this PDF Printer in the net. It supports Windows Vista.

I used to use PrimoPDF too.

However, now that I use the Ubuntu version of the Linux operating system, I am always given the option of printing to a PDF file as part of the default print set up.
