Editors' Review

+

PrimoPDF 4 converts just about any file type to a PDF, using the source program the file was created with and its print command. Two new changes make the program easier to use and more useful. The interface redesign is definitely easier to navigate, and users can now choose to email the PDF instantly after its creation.

The conversion process from whatever document is on your screen to PDF is quick and efficient. Other features include a security feature, which allows the user to wrap the PDF in 40-bit or 128-bit encryption, PDF merging, and password protection. The user also can restrict editing of the new PDF, leaving comments and making other changes.

Primo's size is surprisingly large for such an unobtrusive app, and it's absolutely necessary to launch the read-me file at the end of installation, since the application loads no icons and leaves no other visible traces on your machine, except in the Start menu's All Programs.

"Beaware this software needs internet connection to convert file into PDF"

March 30, 2008  |  By aamjadh

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 4

Cons

If you don't have internet connection or block this software access to internet it would not convert to PDF. It is dangerous because it could be sending a copy of your print file to somewhere else.

"Simple, reliable, and unobtrusive."

March 24, 2008  |  By bow.cheung

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 4

Pros

Great software that really makes it easy to convert to PDF from MS Office. I downloaded, installed and converted in mere minutes! Best of all this software is free and doesn't perform that stupid MS Genuine Advantage check.

Cons

Somewhat slow, I have a dual-core processor with tons of ram and it still takes about 15 seconds to pop out a PDF. Minor complaint as I'm just impatient.

"Never thought that creating a pdf file was so easy"

March 23, 2008  |  By sgurukrupagmailcom

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 4

Pros

You get a lot of options for choosing the quality of the file that you want to be created. You can create a pdf file suitable for viewing on the screen, for printing, for ebook, for prepress or with a custom resolution. This is great!
