OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org/) - I have just started using OpenOffice.org and am so impressed by it. Not only can you create and edit many files, you can also create amazing PDF files. How? Simply click the export directly to PDF button along the top of the screen. I created this PDF with OpenOffice and it even created a clickable table of contents for me! I highly recommend it.
PDF995 (http://PDF995.com/) - You can download PDF995 and the add-on PDFedit for free and then use it to save your documents as a PDF. I actually use this tool to convert my Word Document template into an 8.5inx5.5in PDF for my self published book. PDFedit creates live links in your PDF documentsâ€¦and remember, it's all for free. However, if you want to pay $19.95 you can get rid of the advertising that pops up each time.
PrimoPDF (http://www.primopdf.com) - This is another PDF tool that I use. It gives you different quality options when you save your document. For example, you can choose ebook quality, print quality, etc. It also allows you to create PDF's from Excel and PowerPoint files as well, which is a function available with most PDF tools.
CutePDF (http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp) - This is another popular PDF conversion tool that many people use. I personally have not used it as often, but hear good things from others about it.
