Converting .xif files to .pdf

On behalf of a friend, does anyone know of a reliable programme which will batch convert .xif files to .pdf? Free would be good but otherwise also acceptable.

The normal way to create pdfs is to get a good virtual pdf printer. I've used Primo free for some time, very successfully.

The free version doesn't do batch creates per se - but I do batches of .doc files by marking them all, then choosing print from the context menu.

It does mean clicking OK a couple of times for each file but that's not too onerous for a free conversion.

There's a paid version which may have more facilities. It's a free download, so you can readily give it a try.

Thanks, I'll get him to try that.

No, it doesn't convert .xif to .pdf, any other suggestions?

Do you actually have Pagis Pro? I read that it will output to other formats.

Have a read here - maybe you can use what they say in some way to get the .xif files to another format first - then use the Primo pdf printer.

If you want you can send me a sample file and I'll have a look and see what can be done. Contact me via the yellow envelope by my name if you want to try that.
