i need a software to convert Word file to PDF file.
Please suggest me some good freeware/ shaerware. i have tried many but some will leave their watemak on each page, some will insert random * at some places overwriting actual characters, some will print their large sized heading on each page and thus disturbing the page formatting applied on actualy word file. there are still others who will convert just first one page of multiple pages of doc file to pdf fle.
please suggest me some good converter that doesnot suffer from all such fllaws.
Thanks.

With the link I posted above, you open any document, then select File -> Print and you will have a PDF printer.

1. Open document in Word
2. Select Print
3. Select PDF Creator
3. Done

Are you using word 2007? If you are, you can save it as a pdf:

click office menu > save as> (click arrow next to it, not the button) > pdf

I'm curious wich flaws you are talking avout when you BUY the PDF converter of Foxitsoftware. free software mostely have flaws. I do not have any problems with Foxitsoftware. If you're still using Office '97 then maybe you should think of upgrading to a newer Office version.

Can it be that your problem lays in the Office version and not in Foxitsoftware?

Richard.
