I downloaded what I thought was a PDF converter from the Internet this weekend and it had a virus attached to it and it totally froze my computer.  I had to pay $200 to get it fixed and took Toshiba support over two hours to fix it.  Just be careful because there is so much malware out there that takes over your computer and screws it up.  I will be way more careful from now on.  Just thought I should share my experience with you too.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this.  But if you have Cute PDF (and I've also used Nitro PDF although it doesn't maintain the boxes) - you can print directly from Eclipse.  I just do Alt O to get the print command window.  I click on "Setup," and Cute PDF is one of my options under Printer "Name." Then I click OK and print to PDF directly from the Eclipse file. I can print word indexes, condensed files, change the fonts, etc. It has worked well so far. Advantage told me Cute PDF was the best at keeping the format.

I used to import the ASCII into MS Word and print to PDF from there after some reformatting of the margins, but this is a lot easier.

Cynthia is correct.  The CutePDF program is on every Eclipse disk and can be found on the Internet for free.  Just follow Cynthia's instructions.  I use a paid converting program quite often for other converting issues, but when I want to turn an Eclipse ECL file into a PDF, I do what Cynthia says.

I use the "create PDF" function of Catalyst for every job.  I include a signature jpg file in my CAT file cert page and make a PDF of that page to send to the agency as my signed cert. 


Ouch, Kelli!

On my Mac, I use a built-in print command . . . but on my PC, I use PDFCreator:


One good thing about this program (besides it being free) is it's maintained on a site for developers, so it should be virus-free.

That said, if you find yourself with a program on your hard drive that you aren't sure about, you can use VirusTotal.com to check it. Just go to the site, click the button to upload the suspicious file to their servers, and they'll give you a good report as to whether it's infected or it not.

Of course, if you have your browser set to decompress everything you download, you might want to turn that off! :)

I just found this one:


I note that the iPhone won't allow the installation; 'Droid? Just like Internet Explorer!
