Here's another nice, little application that helps when
you need it. This program is aptly called "Click2PDF." This program does pretty
much what its name implies. It creates PDF documents for you at the click of a
few mouse buttons. The best part? You do not need high-end, expensive software
to do it! Click2PDF creates your industry standard PDF document in black and
white or color that you can then give, or send to others. You can include
watermarks, footers, headers, as well as personal information such as the
author, title and a subject in your final document if you wish.
Briefly here's how it works. If you were typing a letter through your favorite
word processor or creating a spectacular spreadsheet you would simply click File
à Print. When your Printer's Dialog box opened up you would select the Click2PDF
as your printer. Yes, it really is just that easy! Click2PDF allows you to
create virtually any file into a PDF file from in essence any application. If
your application allows you to "Print" from it, Click2PDF will create it. If you
can print, you can Click2PDF.
When you install Click2PDF it will add a virtual printer alongside your other
printers in addition to its own drivers. Don't worry, Click2PDF does not crash
any other currently installed drivers. When you're ready to make that PDF
document simply print to the Click2PDF printer. You can open several
applications or print several pages at a time to Click2PDF since Click2PDF
stores your current jobs in a queue. Later you can go through your print jobs,
add a watermark or header and presto, you have your PDF file! For convenience
sake Click2PDF can launch and send you to your email program (Outlook, Outlook
Express or Eudora) with your attached PDF file, ready to send.
I tried this program in several different ways and in several different programs
and found it to be one that I will most likely be using over and over. You never
know when you'll need Click2PDF and it will be there when you need it. This is a
great addition to your software library and will come in handy just when you
need it. The price is considerably far less than other software programs that do
essentially the same thing and support is great.
