    PrimoPDF is much better. It’s free and installs as a printer driver. Anything you can print ends up as a pdf. It’s slick and free.

    Google’s not bad, but it won’t handle every file format.

    But, I will assume if you have a weird format. you have the program to open and print. Unless it’s a really old file, I’m guessing those with many formats would be better off with Primo.
