A few weeks ago, I downloaded and installed PDFFactory Pro onto a machine at work. Now, every time I print something out in Word, Excel or PowerPoint, I receive a confirmation message that the document is a "Papua New Guinea PDF". It doesn't matter which program I'm using because it always causes me to cringe. Why is this even necessary? Isn't Microsoft supposed to automatically detect the file extension of any document and deliver the right file format for me? Apparently, not everything is peachy in corporate America.
The main reason behind my cringing when I see the file extension error is because there is a possibility that I will accidentally create PDF files with any extension. I know that I've created PDF files before but never thought about creating them with the peyote Adobe printer driver. This new driver allows me to convert any PDF file into a "psd" file just by installing the fingerprint software onto the machine. With just one click, the computer can quickly and easily convert any PDF document into a photoshape or other acceptable format. So if I have a presentation that needs to be created in a specific format, all I have to do is install the fingerprint software and I can easily create PDFs.
While I was searching for a solution to this problem, I came across another interesting product named Pdfactory Pro. This software can successfully import any PDF file into a layout or design application. In addition to being able to easily convert PDF files into a desired shape, I can also add a text track for notes and even apply a logo or clipart to my document. What makes Pdfactory Pro stand out from the rest of the software packages out there is that it has an automated PDF conversion feature that allows you to instantly create a single pdf file with just one click of the mouse.
