Adobe Acrobat DC works - I use it.

You can use Cute PDF, Nuance has a product. There are more

Google for "create PDF" and have a look at the above and others.

I recommend Nuance's Power PDF Advanced (not Standard) and Tracker's PDF-XChange Editor PRO (not any other edition):

http://www.nuance.com/for-business/imaging-solutions/document-conversion/power-pdf-converter/advanced/index.htm

http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-pro

The following articles and videos that I've published here at EE on these products may interest you (although the Tracker ones were done with the free reader, not the PRO editor):

Other robust PDF packages to consider are CutePDF Pro, Foxit PhantomPDF Business, and Nitro Pro. I have the free readers of all those products, not their editors, so I can't speak to them from personal use, but they have excellent reputations, and based on the quality of their readers, I wouldn't hesitate to give their editors a try. That said, I have both Nuance's Power PDF Advanced and Tracker's PDF-XChange Editor PRO, and I can that they are both excellent products — with a big edge to Tracker on the support front.

As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with any of the companies mentioned in this post and no financial interest in them whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe
