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. Read more

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. Screenshot on the right shows how easy it is to create a PDF file from Microsoft Word.

  • 2

    Saves you money

    doPDF is a PDF converter free for both commercial/business and personal use. Won't cost you a dime to make PDF files (but we'll love you even more if you upgrade to novaPDF).
  • 3

    same setup can be used to install doPDF on both 32 and 64-bit Windows operating systems (and any 32-bit multiple when the time will come).
  • 4

    Universal

    you can convert to PDF any type of printable document (i.e. DOC, XLS, PPT, PUB, DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, PUBX, HTML, TXT,...).
  • 5

    No GhostScript or .NET

    doesn’t require 3rd party programs to make PDF files such as GhostScript or runtime environments like the .NET Framework. This makes the setup file to be incredibly small compared to other free PDF creator programs.
  • 6

    Searchable PDFs

    you can search for text within the created PDF file (and search engines will also index the text from the PDF).
  • 7

    Multi-language

    doPDF is the ONLY free pdf maker whose interface is currently available in 33 different languages and has a website translated in 30 languages (and growing, thanks to our translators).

    compared to other free PDF creator software, doPDF barely uses any memory or CPU resources when doing the actual conversion to PDF.
  • 9

    Do your part in saving the planet

    instead of consuming paper to print your document, why not create a PDF file out of it and spare a couple of planet-saving trees?

Main Features

  • 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).
  • Measurement units

    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.
  • Graphic scale

    the content of the resulting PDF can be shrunk to 1% off the original size, or enlarged up to 400%.
  • Graphic resolution

    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.
  • Page orientation

    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.
