Here's a quick and easy way to transform Word documents into PDF format. MakePDF installs as a menu option in Microsoft Word. Under the Options feature, the program offers a number of ways to manipulate your document, by changing the size or the format of images or the font, creating watermarks, and viewing hyperlinks and page dimensions. In addition to translating files from DOC to PDF, MakePDF also can merge files, perform batch conversions, and encrypt files. All the program features performed flawlessly during our testing. Overall, MakePDF for Word is a good utility for PDF conversion.
