Convert any Documents to PDF Format for FREE

March 4, 2010 | Filed under Microsoft Office, Software


Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format created by Adobe Systems in 1993 for document exchange. It can be considered to be the second most well know format for document after .doc format. If compared DOC with PDF document, the doc format can be easily edited when a user opens it with Microsoft Word or OpenOffice Writer. However as for PDF, most of the time user only installs Adobe Reader to open, view and print the PDF file, and very seldom install the bloated Adobe Acrobat. So in terms of distribution for printing and viewing, PDF format is always the best choice.

To create PDF file, most of the time people will have a word or any kind of document format and then convert it to PDF. The conversion of documents to PDF format is a little different because it does by re-printing the document file to PDF which will create the PDF file. For example, you have a file called zhacks.doc and wants to convert it to zhacks.pdf. All you need to do is open the zhacks.doc with Microsoft Word or OpenOffice Writer, go to File and select Print. Then you will need to select the driver that has been installed to convert it to PDF.
