Editors' Review

+
Free, yes. Easy, yes. Satisfactory, no. Free Easy PDF is a simple but fatally crippled text editor that can save documents in PDF format. It supports essential formatting features such as fonts, bullets, highlighted text, and tables. In addition, you can insert images (BMP only), bookmarks (which you can't name), and hyperlinks to bookmarks. However, despite its supposed freeware price, the program watermarks its PDFs. That makes it no more valuable than Windows' built-in WordPad, and probably less so, given that it can't save documents in text, RTF, or any format besides its proprietary Easy PDF Project. Only its polished, Word-like interface saves it from a lower rating. Since you almost certainly have a better word processor already, we'd recommend installing a separate freeware utility to convert documents to PDF. It's almost as easy, and just as free.

    "Read the license agreement!"

    April 27, 2007   |   By cath.w

    Version: Free Easy PDF 2.2.1

    Cons

    They call it free, but, quote from the license agreement: "This is not free software....If you use the software after the 20 day evaluation period, a licence fee is payable" This would imply to me that, even if you can live with the ads, you are still not legal to use it after 20 days. Beware those of you who like to be legal on your software, but don't read the license terms!

    "Great!"

    April 20, 2005   |   By computer_genius

    Version: Free Easy PDF 2.2.1

    Pros

    I don't use the free version, I use the paid one. This PDF creator in the WYSIWYG environment is great! I just hope they would make its interface skinnable and prettier like the other VisageSoft products. This app doesn't slow down my PC and makes high-quality PDF for a low price.

    Cons

    The not-so-nice interface, and the outdated release.

    "Free but comes at an irritating advert from them!"

    February 05, 2005   |   By icelandknight

    Version: Free Easy PDF 2.2.1

    Pros

    Making free PDF documents. We use the "READ TO ME" features in Acrobat a lot because some of our readers are blind.

    Cons

    We make PDF documents / newletters for people, some of them blind. They use the "READ TO ME" feature in software they have, and Acrobat. The watermark on EACH PAGE made the documents we made with EasyPDF so irritating for the blind that they asked me to go back to Word and forget about ever using EasyPDF for their documents, even though it was "free". - After converting 20 documents without realising this flaw, I have searched for a way to disable the adverts without success. Although we are very frustrated by having to go back and redo all the newsletters, we are glad we didn't delete the original Word texts. NO MENTION OF THIS IS MADE IN THE PROGRAM DESCRIPTION / LIMIT.

    "Not bad"

    August 21, 2003

    Version: Free Easy PDF 2.2.1

    Summary

    This is a good product if you don't mind about the watermark in each page of your PDF file. It's very easy to use, with an intuitive interface and generates very good PDF files, the only boring thing is the watermark (that's what you get when you look for freebies)

    "Not useful"

    November 26, 2002

    Version: Free Easy PDF 2.2.1

    Summary

    Very easy to set up. This program would be great if it didn't have the above written on top of every page of PDF files it makes:
