    "Not so great"

    July 27, 2011  |   By Caldrumr1234


    Creates PDF files


    Automatic printing to default printer, poor quality conversion


    I will give this two stars, since it technically creates a PDF file out of the original material, which is what it is supposed to do. However, it says that it will temporarily make PDF Creator the default printer, which it does not, and I printed out to big stacks of papers this way. It automatically just printed to my default printer, without ever creating a PDF. I had to manually switch PDF Creator to the default printer to get this to work. Not good.
    Also, the images in my original file came out oversized and pixelated in the PDF document. Very poor quality.
