Editors' Review

doPDF Free PDF Converter makes generating PDF documents as hassle-free as possible, thanks to its deep integration into Windows. This software installs a virtual printer on your computer, which you can use to create PDF documents from any app that supports printing.

Pros

Deep integration: Installing itself as a printer on your PC, doPDF Free PDF Converter allows you to bring up the printing options by pressing Ctrl + P in every app that supports printing.

Multiple page layout options: By accessing doPDF's printer properties you can set things like page orientation and size, and the printing resolution. Once you press "Print," a couple of additional options will appear, such as a save location, general PDF quality, and whether to embed fonts into the PDF.

Fast and stable: In our tests, the software never crashed or slowed down, not even when generating multi-page PDFs. The average speed was around a second per five pages.

Cons

Ads for novaPDF: During the printing process you'll see ads for novaPDF. Fortunately, they blend into the software really well and are displayed as tips and tricks, so you won't find them too bothersome.

No way to generate encrypted PDFs: If you want to generate sensitive PDF documents, you should look for an alternative product, since this one does not offer document encryption.

Bottom Line

doPDF Free PDF Converter comes to your rescue, if you find yourself needing to create PDF documents from a multitude of applications and are tired of doing it differently for each app. With its straightforward and familiar mode of operation, you have nothing to lose by trying it.

"Strange and suspicious behavior"

July 27, 2015  |  By phree04

 |  Version: doPDF 8.3.934

Pros

Worked briefly but . . . scary

Cons

"Calls home" every day at 2 pm PST. Luckily my firewall caught this outward communication and blocked it. But then the program stopped working. When I uninstalled, got a strange message that my antivirus had been turned off. Too scary for me.

Summary

STAY AWAY

"Quits after a week.Developr not responding on own forum"

May 04, 2015  |  By useranyarbitraryword

 |  Version: doPDF 8.2.929

Pros

It works for a week or so, although not without glitches: it sometimes keeps on trying forever (had to kill the process).

Cons

After several days (or after just one use) it stops working. Error message 4380. I looked it up, and they have a help forum on their own website. Someone asked that question on 3/21/15, and there is no response from anyone.

Summary

It's gonna misbehave, and when it does, they are not gonna help you.

April 17, 2015  |  By StarNStripe

"That was a waste of time."

March 08, 2015  |  By sr3500

 |  Version: doPDF 8.2.929

Pros

None. It doesn't install completely - nonfunctional.

Cons

Everything. It doesn't install completely, and it's problematic to uninstall. I should have heeded the other reviewers saying the same thing.

Summary

I actually created this profile after this download, just to warn people away. Maybe it was good at one time (I see positive reviews for previous versions), but this iteration is a waste of your time. Go with something else until/unless they fix this.

"Does not install."

January 15, 2015  |  By HUDAHAR1

 |  Version: doPDF 8.1.922

Pros

None. Does not install.

Cons

None. Does not install.

Summary

Made several attempts to install on a Win 8.1 64 bit box. It reports installed, but when I attempt to access it reports memory write access error.
I have used DoPdf 7 (and am still using) for quite some time, and it is 5 stars. This Ver 8, however, is a useless. I have tried several times since it was released to install it. Always with the same result. I wind up uninstalling and reverting to Ver 7. I will try one more time with the next version 8 update. If it fails to install properly, I will just stay with 7 and forget 8 even exists.

"Fast, Simple, Reliable, Perfect!"

January 26, 2014  |  By FastElvis

 |  Version: doPDF Free PDF Converter 7.3.393

Pros

Does exactly what is claimed. Super fast conversion of ANY printable file to a 100% compatible viewing PDF. Printer driver access eliminates the need to load a secondary application for conversion. Webpage conversions to PDF a SNAP! Convert Wiki articles, recipes, DIY blogs, etc. right from your browser's print button. Select individual pages or a range of pages to convert - usually supported in the application program print routine (i.e. Word, Firefox, etc.). Embed Font option ensures the PDF uses your original fonts - and it only embeds those characters, not the entire character set!

CONTAINS NO BLOATWARE OR WATERMARK!!! I don't know what other reviewers are talking about. ??? Maybe they used earlier CNet Downoader shells. Simply SKIP the add-ons offered in the CNet Downloader if they are offered and you so choose. Common people! Read what is on your computer screen when installing ANY software!

Cons

NONE - It has worked flawlessly for many years on many machines and op systems.

Summary

As a computer service professional, I heavily scrutinize applications on a regular basis. PDF converters are in demand. DoPDF has been recommended to a countless number of clients with ZERO negative feedback. Plus, I have never received a call from anyone needing instruction to install or use. It's that good and that simple.
