• Microsoft...what? Windows XP? Office XP? Both? Anyway. Try a free PDF maker. Here's one I've used that works well. You just install the software, open up the document you want to make the PDF out of, and go to print it just like you normally do. Except it will install a new "printer" in your list that's the PDF converter. It takes the print job and creates the PDF for you.
  • Sorry, that was Microsoft Office XP
  • I use PDFCreator -
  • "Implementations: PDF-viewing software is generally provided free of charge, including versions by Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Viewer, and others. There are many software options for creating PDFs, including the PDF printing capabilities built in to Mac OS X and some versions of Linux, the multi-platform, Microsoft Office 2007 (if updated to SP2[20]), WordPerfect since version 9, numerous PDF print drivers for Microsoft Windows, the pdfTeX typesetting system, the DocBook PDF tools, applications developed around Ghostscript and Adobe Acrobat itself. Google's online office suite Google Docs also allows for uploading, and saving to the PDF format. - Editing PDFs (structure): There is also specialized software for editing PDF files, though the choices are much more limited and often expensive. As of version 0.46, Inkscape also allows PDF editing through an intermediate translation step involving poppler. A freeware desktop program also exists which allows PDF format order forms and applications to be filled in and printed off, even those previously uneditable using Adobe Reader. - Annotating PDFs: Adobe Acrobat is one example of proprietary software that allows the user to annotate, highlight, add notes to already created PDF files. A free UNIX application is PDFedit. An excellent free application native to the Linux environment is Xournal. Xournal allows for annotating in different fonts and colours as well as a rule for underlining and highlighting lines of text or paragraphs quickly and easily. Xournal also has a shape recognition tool for squares, rectangles and circles. In Xournal annotations may be easily moved, copied and pasted. Foxit Reader (free) allows annotating but adds a watermark on each annotated page. The commercial version of the package does not have this limitation." Source and further information: Frther information:
  • Adobe acrobat is costly,there are many substitute can do also do this job well.such as simpo pdf creator,it's very cheap,but can convert all the printable files into pdf,
  • There are a lot of free programs you can download from that do the same thing. Why spend money unless you need other features that are only available in Acrobat? (I think a popular one is simply named "PDF Creator.") Also, Microsoft Office is very popular and many people already own and use it, and Office 2007 has a PDF creator build in.
