doPDF lets you quickly create PDF documents from any printable file, including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, plain text files, or even images. It installs itself as a virtual printer on your system, therefore all you need to do in order to convert files to PDF documents is select the “Print” function and then choose the doPDF virtual printer from the list of available printers. It also comes with a simple and straightforward interface that allows for selecting and converting files to PDF without opening them first and selecting the “Print” command. This handy additional interface is an important benefit of this virtual printer, as it can save you a lot of precious time when converting the files. Furthermore, most other virtual printers don’t offer any additional options of converting the files.
Another remarkable advantage of this nice tool is the fact that it’s free. Despite that, it still offers cool additional features and options such as the possibility to select a predefined page size for the resulting PDF file. You can also choose to create high quality PDF files, more suitable for printing, or smaller files which are a better fit for Web publishing, as you prefer, and you can also choose to keep bookmarks and links from MS Office documents to the output PDF after the conversion.
To sum it all up, though it’s free, doPDF is also one of the nicest and handiest PDF virtual printers you can find. It’s easy-to-use, and it gets its job done as intended, without flaws or errors.
