    PDFCreator

    Morning all,

    As you're probably aware, Adobe has officially removed FlashPaper from the new version of Contribute.

    Another reason to divert my attention I feel!

    After a little look around the net I came across this marvellous tool. PDFCreator is completely freeware and comes with an MSI for AD deployment!

    I don't have to pay Adobe even more money for their PDF creator now!

    I downloaded the tool from here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=442172

    Hope that saves you some money too!

    PrimoPDF is also freeware - what we use at my school

    Re: PDFCreator

    If all you need to do is convert a document to a pdf then use Open Office.

    Open the document in Open Office - click the pdf icon - name it - job done.

    We use PDFCreator now.
    We used to use Primo PDF, but it started having ads in the free version, so I tried PDFCreator. It seems to produce better quality PDFs than Primo PDF, in my opinion.

    Re: PDFCreator

    Have deployed PDFCreator across the whole site on Tuesday, have had some good feedback from staff.

    Looks like we're settled for now!

    I think the head will be pleased to hear we're now saving huge amounts of money without having to pay for Adobe!

    We use CutePDF - easy to install and use. We install it as part of our standard image.

    Re: PDFCreator

    Not bad - I'll take a little look at PrimoPDF. I didn't realise there were so many free alternatives!

    we use pdf995 http://www.pdf995.com/

    It's free if you don't mind the ads - Rates are reasonable if you want to lose the ads! (eg USD19.95 for single user - USD325 for 25 users for the full pdfedit995 suite)
