    I'm in Ca and use edjoin. Are there any reputable free programs that will convert my documents to PDF? They say that is what employers want PDF documents --- while I learn quick my technology skills do not lie in coverting PDF documents

    I use dopdf and I love it; it's free, easy to use and it doesn't leave any watermark. The website is here. Basically after you install it and you want to make a document to a pdf document you just hit print and then send it to the dopdf "printer" and then you save it where you want to and you should have a pdf.

    I downloaded some kind of component from microsoft and now all i have to do is go to save as and choose to save it as a pdf file.

    I think it tells you where to go to download it when you go to 'save as'. But not sure?

    Ok. I'm also in CA and use EdJoin. I have Vista and my Adobe software, that I bought by the way, won't work with Vista. I have found that if you pretend like you're going to print in Word and choose "print to PDF" instead of printing to a printer, Word will make it a PDF. This is the only way I can create a PDF out of a Word document.

    This one only works if you have Office 2007 I believe (which I need to upgrade to)

    Another good reason to own a Mac... pdf-creation has been part of OSX from the git-go.
