    Printing to PDF

    Any good freeware that will print a document to PDF? Don't need more bloatware on my computer, so thought I would check here first.

    I used PDFCREATOR for years. My Windows 7/Office 2010 came with an option to print to PDF.

    this is what I use at home and at work. I've used a few others that do that job, but notic some formatting gets a little jacked from time time.

    PDFCreator | Free Business & Enterprise software downloads at SourceForge.net

    A printer driver created through a Source Forge project. Works well, just print the current document to the PDF Creator printer, and voila.

    This. CutePDF is free and very easy to use. The ISU college of business has this on the computers in their labs.

    This one's probably the best, cutepdf works good as well.

    As far as documents go though, if you're using office you may be able to just save as a pdf.

    I use Openoffice.org. It is pretty much the equivalent to Microsoft Office. Comes with all the software, and lets you convert to PDF..
