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.

"Looks promising but..."

October 07, 2014  |  By TheFarnz65

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

Pros

Free no apparent adware

Cons

Very limited selection of document sizes. No Architectural sizes and the custom Post Script size doesn't save for reuse. Printing from Power Point onto Arch E (48x36) causes the paper to rotate to portrait with a reduced document in the middle of sheet. Switching between portrait and landscape has no effect.

Summary

Might be okay for some uses but if you are looking to print to large format documents use CutePDF.

"Not bad! Not great either!"

June 14, 2014  |  By pickycustomer

 |  Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

Pros

Simple easy to use.

Cons

Comes with "Open Candy" malware.
Scan with MalwareBytes Free to
remove "Open Candy" adware/malware.

Summary

Converts documents to PDF quickly and easily.
As I stated above Primo PDF Converter comes with
"Open Candy" malware which MalwareBytes Free
will remove.

LibreOffice and Kingsoft Office Free will export a
document to PDF, as do other office suites. So the need for a "converter" is greatly reduced.
