Editors' review

Free PDF Creator from GIRDAC InfoTechnologies is a free application that can create PDF documents from hundreds of Windows applications without requiring any Adobe software. It can create a PDF document from the Print properties of any printable file. It can handle multiple users on one system and save each user's settings for regular operation, and it displays a Conversion Report when it's done.

Free PDF Creator is essentially a printer driver that lets you save or print documents in the PDF format from the Print properties dialog of any file. However, it also has a setup interface, a compact box that lets you select a destination for finished files and access the PDF-based Help file. We selected a target folder and closed the dialog. We then opened a saved text file, selected Print from the file menu, and clicked on the Easy PDF Creator printer icon. A Save As dialog appeared with the file name blank and PDF filled in as file type. Clicking Print Preferences called up a dialog with a Document tab that let us enter information about our PDF. After entering everything we needed, we saved the file and then opened it in Adobe Reader. The file was perfectly legible with all appropriate information. You can also initiate Easy PDF Creator from its setup dialog when you change file paths by clicking Create PDF. If the file path is valid, the program will create the PDF there. But we like the efficiency of accessing Easy PDF Creator from the Print properties since it makes it so easy to choose to save or print a document using very similar and familiar commands.

PDFs are everywhere these days, and many people use them for business and pleasure. Big-box PDF programs do a lot, but they cost a lot, too. Easy PDF Creator does just a few simple things, but it does them well, quickly, and for free.
