Editors' Review

+

doPDF is a fairly basic program that's utterly bereft of features beyond its main function: to let users create PDF documents from within any program using the native Print option. Along with whatever printer you've got hooked up that shows up in the Print dialog box, doPDF adds an eponymous option. Select it, hit print, and you get the chance to change the name of the PDF you're creating. Hit enter and the PDF gets created, then automatically opens for you to proofread it.

Lacking any customization features and the control panel to manage them, doPDF is definitely meant for fast PDF creation with a minimum of fuss. It does support a multitude of languages, a minor feature except to those who don't use English as their primary language. One benefit of not having any major features is that doPDF takes up almost no RAM.

doPDF gives a simple output dialog box for altering the name and saving location of the PDF, and by clicking on Advanced Options, users can manually adjust the resolution of the PDF they're creating. However, unless you know precisely how resolution changes will affect the size of your PDF, this can be a bit tricky. doPDF is great for those not looking for a lot of a options, but for any project requiring a bit more finesse, it's worth looking at the competition.

"DO NOT USE With Links!"

July 21, 2011  |  By Vedant_I_Am

 |  Version: doPDF Free PDF Converter 7.2.369

Pros

Converts Word to PDF but not links!

Cons

I had agreed to give readers bonus link in my PDF Guide. You cannot click links in PDFs made with doPDF! I didn't ask the visitors for their contact details to access my guide to Free Viral Traffic Ideas here- http://keoyl.com/YyA5aZ .

Summary

Never use doPDF if you have links in your to-be PDF.
I came to know about the problem when I checked my guide but till then half a dozen (6-7) visitors had already downloaded the guide. I learned it by trial and error, you have learned it the easy way; from my experience- use it and beware!
I recommend PDF Printer PRO with social capabilities-

"Easy to install/use"

July 20, 2011  |  By aj34997

 |  Version: doPDF Free PDF Converter 7.2.369

Pros

A very small program, fast download. Will copy selected pages of a full size PDF document. The copied selected pages of a PDF document looks exactly like the original. Easy to use. Converted an rtf file. It copied exactly, but a better quality.

Cons

If you launch the program from within the program folder you will notice there is no About or Info link on the program. In other words the version number info is not where most other programs have the version number located.

Summary

To use pull up your document you want copied or converted, click on Print. Select the pages you want copied/converted, select your printer (doPDF) click OK. Another window will pop up with the file location of the original document filled in. You can then change the file name or it's location. Click OK. Your done. To find the version number of the program they're two ways I know of. 1st way...On Windows XP click on the Start tab, go to Settings, over and down to Printers and Faxes, a window will pop up. (Do not open the printer.) Right click on doPDF printer, then click on Printing Preferences. The printers info window will pop up. Click on About. Here's the info. 2nd way... When the program installed it created a shortcut within the Start menu. Click on Start, go to Programs, go to the doPDF folder, click on the doPDF shortcut icon. This will open the program interface. Now click on Help. This will open the Help files. (Note: if you search the word version, it will pull up 3 choices. Display choice "About", this will tell you where the version is located. But, it's not to detailed.) Continuing... Click on Print at the top of the interface popup. With your cursor highlite printer doPDF, click on Preferences. (If it won't highlite, then right click on doPDF and click on Printing Preferences. This will bring up the Printing Preferences window. Click on the About tab. Here's the version info. But as far as the operation aspect of this program, it works great. This is not designed to change the document pages it's only a very simple file converter to a PDF file. If you can print a file/document you can convert it to a PDF file. Get it.
