Editors' Review


It's not much to look at, but this program quickly and easily helps users convert files into PDF format, and comes at no cost.

PDFCreator has a very basic interface that won't win it any beauty contests. However, by keeping the visuals to a minimum, users will be able to quickly and easily navigate the program and get right to the task at hand. PDFCreator appears as a small, white, rectangular box with a thin strip of command icons along the top. Here you can print, look at options, navigate your files, and open new files. Below the strip is an open space that displays your selected file's name, size, and status.

After selecting a file for conversion, users are taken to another simple screen. This one asks users to create a file name, creation date, author, keyword and subject for the soon-to-be-created PDF. At the bottom of the screen are commands for saving the PDF or emailing it. The email option instantly adds the PDF as an attachment in your Outlook email.

We were impressed with the speed and ease we converted our files to PDF with PDFCreator. There may be more flashy conversion programs available, or ones that try to do more than this one, but for those just looking for an inexpensive and simple PDF converter, this one fits the bill nicely.

"Life-saver in many ways!"

March 26, 2012  |  By eearhart

 |  Version: PDFCreator 1.3.1


The ability to save anything as a PDF document, has long been a boon, but PDFCreator makes it simple, and has options that are easy for users to understand. I have school where users range from experienced to just beginning to use a computer, and PDFCreator is easy for anyone to figure out.


Ability to make changes is always necessary, and there are some issues when you forgot to move something around and need to work on it and don't have Adobe. However, this is rare and not that big a deal.


I believe that PDFCreator is one of the best PDF converters around, and I not only recommend it, but use it myself on all my computers.

"Previous version 1.2.3 Better"

March 20, 2012  |  By snowmole

 |  Version: PDFCreator 1.3.1


Works similar to previous version: 1.2.3


Requires an extra step to close printing log after complete. No way to close/discontinue log box function. Creates document in fonts unrecognizable by either Adobe Acrobat or PDF Converter Pro 7. (Does not like Ariel or Tahoma)


Unless you like to fiddle with all the settings of a program, stay with previous version 1.2.3.
