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.

Developer's Description

Using doPDF you can freely convert documents to searchable PDF files from any Windows application.

It installs as a printer driver and helps you generate the PDF files by simply selecting the "print" command from any application (you can convert your Word documents, Excel sheets, PowerPoint presentations, AutoCad drawings, company's reports, contracts, workflows, agreements, marketing plans, forms, products list, price list, charts, e-mails or web pages).

The resulted PDF files can be viewed on any computer with a PDF viewer (reader) installed. This PDF creator is compatible with Windows 8/7/XP/2003/Vista (32 and 64-bit versions) and requires approximately 10MB of free disk space for the installation. It doesn't require third party tools to be installed in order to generate the pdf file (like Adobe Acrobat or GhostScript). doPDF has a lot of features that allows you to: modify the paper size, modify the resolution (from 72 to 2400 dpi), change page orientation (portrait, landscape), change the quality settings, embed font subsets.
