editor's review






Creating PDF documents is a task many users perform if not on a daily basis, often enough to require a dedicated software application that will make their job easier.

Such a tool is PrimoPDF, a program that is able to turn any type of printable document into a Portable Document Format file with only a few clicks.

Installation process and GUI

The installation procedure is a matter of seconds, but be advised to pay attention at the third-party software it comes with because it can change the settings of your Internet browser.

The application's interface is quite user friendly, with a touch of good looks and it enables you to quickly customize the running settings of this utility.

Drag and drop files for conversion

A rather handy feature of PrimoPDF is the fact that you can simply drag and drop files onto it's desktop icon in order to have them processed. You can choose the appropriate dimensions, edit the PDF's properties and security details. There is also a 'Custom' option that is designed to help you choose the coloring for the generated files.

Works just like a virtual printer

Another way of creating a Portable Document Format file is by hitting the Print button in your Windows applications. PrimoPDF is also installed on your computer as a virtual printer, so all you have to do is to select Print and choose it in the next dialog.

Bottom line

Given its ease of use and thanks to the fact that it can handle text documents, images as well as webpages, PrimoPDF will prove very useful for all users who need to quickly build PDFs.
