Editors' Review

+

PrimoPDF is a basic yet powerful application that revolutionizes PDF file creation. You can construct perfect PDF files using the straightforward drag-and-drop tool this application offers.

Pros

Valuable toolkit: PrimoPDF creates all types of files in standard PDF format faster than competitors, making it one of the best free applications we've tried. The custom settings give you the ability to lock files and determine design specifications, so files will be exactly as you want them.

Fast, precise operation: We converted various file formats with PrimoPDF, and our PDFs were created within seconds, no matter the size or type of file. No instance of lessened image quality was observed either.

Cons

Dysfunctional support: PrimoPDF comes with an excellent user guide; however, many of the support links we clicked on were either broken or redirected us elsewhere. We only found the user guide and other assistance via Internet search.

Substandard design: We quickly noticed that nearly half of Primo's program window is consumed by advertisements for other software. This is understandable because it is a free application, but it complicates and detracts from the overall experience, nonetheless.

Bottom Line

PrimoPDF is an awesome, easy-to-use application for quickly creating PDF files. Including a larger, more robust GUI would make using PrimoPDF a tad easier, but there really isn't much that needs changing with this application. We highly suggest you use Primo if you need to create a PDF file; it's fast, reliable, and uncomplicated.

"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.
