Create PDF - recommendations please

  rickd 08:14 14 May 2008

I want to create some PDF files - not many, but they must work/look professional and the software has to be straightforward for techno-fearing staff. I don't want to spend £300+ for the full Adobe package unless I need to - which of the cheaper options actually work well with XP/office 2003?

There a probably others, but I use PDFFactory; (cost $50; about £25-ish)

I can thoroughly recommend this one click here I have been using version4 for some years, it is great.

The Nuance prog gets a bit of a slagging on Amazon (1.5stars!) do you have these probs, or is it just V5?

  Technotiger 09:08 14 May 2008

I can't comment on V5, as I have only used V4 which has never given me any problems. I have never contemplated up-grading to V5 as I am happy with V4.

I use V4 mainly to make suggestions and add comments to my Son's on-line sports magazine, I am in UK while he lives in Lanzarote - click here

Agree with Taff, I've used Primo pdf for a while no problems. Or, you could just use Open Office instead and use the built-in pdf writer.
