I use Primo pdf. Anything that you can print can be converted to a pdf.

OpenOffice or LibreOffice both do it with a mere menu click.

Adobe Reader has a “Save As” option that let’s you save a file as plain (ASCII) text. My guess is that you can do just about anything with it once it’s in ASCII.

OpenOffice can do it, and it’s free.

Irfanview [freeware] can save ‘graphics’ into PDFs.

doPDF and similar products [many freeware] use your computer printing function to ‘print’ an application file as a PDF.

It depends on your FROM/TO formats.

If you’re trying to convert a PDF doc into an editable doc (for Word or some other program), you could try the ABBYY PDF Transformer. It’s available on line (http://pdftransformer.abbyy.com/) and while it’s not free, there’s an evaluation period that would solve your problems right now and give you a chance to see if you like it.

It works beautifully and gives you editable documents even when the original text quality is not very good. And of course, you can also use it to create PDFs.

To convert TO a PDF there are a lot that act like print spoolers and you add it like a printer.

To convert FROM a PDF the select all copy paste works unless it is protected.

Other than that you’ll probably Pay $$$.

Let me know if you find something that will convert multiple image files into one PDF.

There’s a million of them at Download.com and TuCows. I use PDF Redirect. Most of the free ones install as printers, so you “print” your document to it and a PDF comes out the other side.

I have an Epson all-in-one printer/scanner/copier that will scan multiple text or grapic documents and save them directly to multi-page PDF files.

go to www.cutepdf.com and download cutepdf writer. It is a great program and it is free. I have used it for years. I like it better than the pdf writer in Acrobat Standard.

Try to find older versions of PrimoPDF. Like 3.0 It kept getting worse the more upgrades they did.

I’m drawing a blank on where I find older versions of shareware.

Just insert the images into a blank document or is there a simpler way?

I just went and checked it out to make sure. I have MS Word 2007. You open a blank document, click on INSERT, the PICTURE. Then find the pics you want to insert, adjust them to fit the page as necessary, one or more to a page if they fit, then simply SAVE AS and select PDF as the format, then voila! You have a single PDF with all the pics you put in. Also, you can ADD more pics later...........

Useful. I don’t need that function often, but it will come in handy.

On my better days, that solution would have occurred to me.

On the ADD part, you have to save the original doc as a non-PDF file if you want to add later pics......

Any time I quickly want a good, free program I check out sourceforge.net

It is home to tons of open source software and it has a search function for finding what you need. There are also reviews of previous downloaders for each choice.

What do you mean by “converter?” Do you mean you want to be able to save documents to pdf?

If that’s the case, I’m a fan of Pdf Redirect v2, which is basically a a printer driver that prints to pdf files, so it works with any Windows app.

Are you talking about making something into a .pdf or something else? My computer came with printing software that makes anything into a .pdf if you want it to do that.
