PDFCreator is a program that allows to create documents in PDF format from other applications, mainly from word processors or other programs that allow the printing of documents. It is compatible with Microsoft Word , OpenOffice, Worpad, Notepad and Excel, among other applications; So that when you edit or create a document, you will be able to export to PDF from the Print document option.
PDFCreator works as a virtual printer, so when you want to save a document to PDF you must select the name of this application from the list of available printers. Instead of printing (what would happen in case of selecting a physical printer), what it does is give the possibility of saving a PDF file.
Besides saving as PDF, it is possible to do it to other formats, for example: PNG, JPG, BMP, TIFF, PS, PCX and EPS. In this version is added a tool called Images2PDF that is used to convert images.
The conversion of the documents is managed by the Ghostscript interpreter, which is updated in each new version of PDF Creator.
This application allows you to create a single file from different sources, and also encrypt the documents to protect them and are not editable. From this version also allows you to sign the documents.
