If someone asks a question do you have Adobe Acrobat on your system, 95% of the people would say yes, and when you ask them to convert a word document to .pdf they would come back saying that I have Adobe Acrobat reader installed. Adobe Acrobat Reader is freeware, which can be used to view .PDF files whereas Adobe Acrobat, which can be used to create and edit .PDF files, comes at a cost.
There are several freeware Acrobat Writers available on the internet. You can check www.download.com for several freeware Acrobat Writers. I am reviewing one such freeware Acrobat Writer doPDF. Please feel free to let me know your views and comments and if you find a better tool please share it with me so that I can add it here.
doPDF doesn’t provide In-Application editing i.e. you cannot open a PDF document in doPDF GUI and Edit it. What doPDF does is it creates a Virtual Printer in your Control Panel > Printers. You can design your document in any application and convert the document into .pdf by printing the document using the doPDF virtual printer. You can download doPDF from the below link.
Please get back to me if you need any further clarification.
