PDF stands for Portable Document Format and it was created by Adobe to ease document exchange.
doPDF is a free PDF creator that does what the name suggests, creates PDF files. Once installed it will allow
you to convert any type of printable documents to PDF files. doPDF installs itself as a virtual PDF printer
driver so after a successful installation will appear in your Printers and Faxes list and also in the list of All Programs.
Using doPDF you can convert to PDF in two ways:
Print to PDF via the virtual printer driver doPDF.
You would do this exactly as you print to a regular printer, just the result will be a PDF file,
not a printed piece of paper.
Open the document you want to convert (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPad, NotePad or
any printable document), choose Print and select doPDF from the list of printers.
You will be asked where to save the PDF file and when finished, the PDF will be automatically
opened with your default PDF reader.

instead of consuming paper to print your document, why not create a PDF file

Predefined page size
you can select a predefined page size
for the resulting PDF file such as: A4, A5, A6, Letter,
Legal, Executive, Envelope DL/C5/B5/Monarch/#10.
Custom page size
if you need more customization in terms of PDF page size,
you can define your own custom size for the resulting document by entering the
desired width and height (you can create documents as small as 10x10 millimeters, or as large as 3276x3276 millimeters).
you can choose to have all measurements displayed in millimeters,
inches or points, this way you don't have to do any conversions of your own.
the content of the resulting PDF can be shrunk to 1% off the original size, or enlarged up to 400%.
you can set a custom resolution for images between 72 and 2400 dpi.
A smaller resolution results in smaller PDF file, but lower image quality, while a higher
resolution means better image quality, but bigger PDF file. The default value is 300 dpi.
Easily set the page orientation to be Landscape or Portrait, changes being visible in the Preview area.
Always use this folder
You can have doPDF create and save the PDF file to the same folder each time,
no matter where you open the original document from.
Embed font subsets
To ensure that the resulting PDF file will look exactly as originally intended,
doPDF embeds by default the font subsets used in the original document.
Open with PDF reader
You can choose to have the PDF opened with the default PDF reader once it's converted.
