    On Windows at work for all types of docs I frequently right click -> convert to PDF. Don't even need to open it, don't need to set up a fancy automator program.

    How can I do this on OS X? Is there some hidden built-in support, or is there a good program (preferably from the MAS) that I need to get?

    That's not what I'm looking for - that takes opening the document, going to Print, then Print to PDF. A lot longer than just right clicking a file. Unless of course you know how to get the "Print to PDF" option in the right click menu.

    Alright, looks like automator is the way to go, probably about time I learn to do that stuff. Thanks for the help.
