Editors' Review

+

There are any number of utilities out there that can quickly and easily convert a variety of file formats into PDFs, so there's no reason to settle for one that doesn't quite meet your needs. DeskPDF Pro combines an efficient drag-and-drop interface with some useful features, but the limitations of the trial version are significant, and there are free programs with many of the same features.

Once installed, DeskPDF Pro appears as an icon in the Windows system tray; clicking it brings up a small interface onto which users can drag files for conversion. This launches a window in which users can browse to the desired destination location and configure the conversion options; clicking the Advanced check box opens an expanded menu with tools for adding metadata, changing security settings, and customizing the way the PDF is displayed. DeskPDF Pro can convert files to either PDF or PS formats, and users can have the program save the new file in the location of their choice or e-mail it. The program comes with a thorough PDF Users Guide, but most users should be able to figure out its features without too much guidance. Although we liked DeskPDF Pro overall -- it was easy to use and gave us plenty of control over the conversion process -- the trial version of the program only allows users to convert five files before it starts placing watermarks on the bottom of each page. The program works well and is worth trying out, but if you're willing to spend some time shopping around, you're likely to find programs with similar capabilities for free.

DeskPDF Pro installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of DeskPDF Pro 2012.
