Although there are good number of pdf convertor utilities availabale in the market, a common problems across these tools are:
- Documents containing bulletted points/images/tables are not rendered properly.
- Most of the pdf convertor tend to leave a watermark in the converted pdf. (i.e. the PDF footer will contain a link to their site etc.) And this makes the document useless (obviously, I can’t send the watermarked pdf to my boss/customer..right?)
- The ones which work well (i.e. render the converted doc properly) and don’t leave their watermarks come with a price.
Adobe’s online pdf convertor looks okay, but the pricing is as weird as it could be – First 5 docs for free, then 9.99 USD/month or 99.99USD/year – that too only in US and Canada! (will they snail mail the PDF in a CD?This is really funny!)
Came across pdfonline.com, and I must say that its one of the coolest pdf conversion tool that I have ever used.
All you need to do is upload the document, enter your email address and you will receive the pdf in a few seconds.
As of now, the tool supports .doc/txt/rtf/ppt/pps/pub/xls and html formats only.
