4.0 (See all)

deskPDF Creator offers to convert any type of documents into a PDF file. The application works as a virtual printer that turns documents into the universally-recognized PDF format. The conversion process supports versatile output settings so that the resulting files can meet your requirements.

In order to create a PDF file, you just need to open a file and select deskPDF Creator from the printer list. Consequently, the tool's printing options pop up, letting you determine the name of the new file and the computer location where to save it. While storing the resulting file, the program offers to send it via e-mail directly from within the app. Before enabling the conversion, you have the ability to apply quality and security settings to the PDF file if necessary, as well as to make several formatting adjustments, such as changing the page orientation and determine the desired paper size. The tool comes with default settings that satisfy most users’ needs – yet, they can be customized according to particular requirements and saved as custom conversion profiles for further use. Another good feature is that the tool lets you convert either the entire document or a specific range of pages. Previewing the document's content is also supported, so you can open the file in Viewer and apply customizable display preferences. The merge function comes with smart options. To benefit from its functionality, you just need to insert the file name of an existing PDF. Once this operation is done, the utility prompts you (by means of a dialog box) to replace, append, or prepend the selected document.

With comprehensive conversion features, this application is a reliable PDF printer for whatever type of documents you want to preserve or share as a PDF file. It provides password protection for the resulting file and allows you to personalize it with watermarks or an electronic letterhead.
