Solid PDF Creator

By Solid Documents Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 27, 2010

Contrary to popular belief, the creation of PDF files doesn't require expensive, complex software. There are plenty of utilities out there now that make PDF creation as simple as printing. Solid PDF Creator is one such program. This basic piece of software lets users create PDFs with little effort or expertise.

Solid PDF Creator is attractive and easy to navigate. Once the program is installed it appears as a printer in the Print menu of every program that has printing capabilities. Users simply select Solid PDF Creator instead of their default printer, and the program opens a dialog allowing users to save the PDF in the desired location. Users can enter the PDF's title, subject, author and keywords, as well as add passwords and encryption. There are also settings for viewer preferences and document quality. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate; we're glad that it has one, but most users probably won't need to consult it. Overall, Solid PDF Creator isn't fancy, but it is true to its name: a solid piece of software that does what it's designed to do without a lot of fuss. We liked that it includes a few useful extras without a bunch of pointless filler features. We think this program is a great choice for anyone who wants to create PDF files as easily as they print documents.

Solid PDF Creator installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
