PDFCreator allows you to create PDF files from any application. It does this by pretending to be a printer; when you click Print from the program, you are prompted where you would like to save the PDF.
This can be very useful for two reasons;
- One - if you send someone a PDF of a Word file or Excel spreadhseet, they can't change it or see how it is constructed,
- Two - Most computers and smartphones can open PDFs, so they can view your document even if they haven't got the application that created it.
PDFCreator is free for personal and commercial use.
