PDF is one of the most important file formats in the world. Every day, millions of PDFs are created for various purposes.
Portable Document Exchange files are easy to create, but you will have to use the right tool to do so. The Ableword program will allow you to create them for free. It has a function to convert PDF files to some other format, a feature usually found in commercial PDF software.
For converting a document with Ableword, the user will have to first open it. There are many tools that work in exactly the same manner as Ableword. The problem with these tools is that user must open the file which he wants to convert.
If you want to create a PDF from any file saved on your PC without opening the file, then you should try out the doPDF software from Softland.
