Primo PDF Informative - A free tool for creating PDFs from any computer

Review by Ben There on 2009-06-28
I suggest that anybody who does lots of transactions on the internet download the free copy of Primo PDF (www.primopdf.com). Once you download this free tool, Primo PDF will appear like a regular printer when you select File>Print.

The printing steps are very similar to normal printer, but the end result is a PDF that you can save to your computer like in "My Documents" or desktop. The PDFs are created just like they would look on paper, and you can print them out later if need be.

I use it to save a copy of any important info that might come in handy later like fine print, bill pay confirmations, travel bookings or invoices. I have it on my personal and work laptops, and I will often email a document to myself to print later when I am networked to a real printer.

Since I downloaded Primo PDF I have cut down on my paper usage by probably 90% because I really never needed most of the stuff I was printing anyway, and it is much more useful to have an electronic copy of most documents anyway.

This is not an ad, Mario... I just really found this to be a useful tool and wanted to pass it on to people on M3C.

Primo PDF is a very useful program. It also works on Windows 7.

How's the 7 working MRM?

I currently have the RTM build 7260 and it is awesome. Its faster than Vista and the security features are more robust. This gonna be a winner!

The only problem is that not all programs and drivers will work on Windows 7. But thats no biggie, as the programmers will have to update their software to be compatible with Windows 7.

Microsoft was climbing uphill for awhile stating with 3.1 then 95 then 98 then 2000, but now they have dropped all the way back down to 7? lol. They should have called Vista
XP Deluxe and Windows 7 should have been called XP Even More Deluxer.

Another good option is CutePDF writer. It's similar to PrimoPDF but has a lot more paper size options. I use it often for creating PDFs of engineering drawings that I need to send to customers or vendors.
