[2005-06-05 12:16:49 ] Tip for creating PDF files - berkes
This is probably THE BEST way to create PDF files under Windows. By best, I mean it's totally free and it also creates the highest quality (and most compact) output PDF files, better than OpenOffice's built in capability for instance! What you do is add a Windows printer using a postscript driver, such as "HP Color LaserJet PS". For the port, select FILE which means that it's not a real printer device but it will print to a file. Now from any software in Windows you can just print to this fake postscript printer. It will ask you to save the output file, so save the output.ps (which is a postscript format file). Now you simply fire up Ghostscript's gsview and go File | Convert usig the 'pdfwrite' device. Bam, you've got the best quality PDF anyone can hope for. I've been doing this for years.

Maybe this should be displayed separately, but an excellent companion to ghostscript if you're using MS Office is the open source GhostWord package. Details here: http://ghostword.sourceforge.net/ This allows you to produce really sharp PDFs with proper hyper links, table of contents in the "Bookmarks" area, etc.
