I bet you know what Adobe Acrobat Reader is. Manuals, humongous office documents are normally converted to PDF or Portable Document Format documents to reduce its size dramatically, thus makes it easier to distribute / share. Then the user will need to use the freely available Adobe Acrobat Reader to read it.
But did you know that the software used to create these PDF documents is so expensive; nobody cares to buy it (except rich companies of course)? The name is Adobe Acrobat, minus the Reader.
Of course, we can use Open Office to convert all of our office documents to PDF but what if I use Microsoft Office? What if I want to convert html files that I’ve downloaded to PDF? What if I want to convert my programming codes in NVU to PDF?
This is where Cute PDF excels. It will convert almost any printable documents to PDF format. Open a file, click Print (depends on the how you normally print the file with the application), select Cute PDF as the printer and click Print. It will not print the documents to a physical printer silly, it will print (or write) to a PDF file. It's that easy!
Before you install Cute PDF, you need to install the converter first. Download it from http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/Writer.asp#download
Then, download Cute PDF freeware from http://www.cutepdf.com/ and install it.
Congratulations, you just save yourselves thousand of dollars with this cutely functional freeware. Enjoy!
