    Hi, I've been using ONLINE2PDF every time I want to covert any MS files to PDF. (always prefer PDF on any file such as doc ppt or excel)
    Is there any quick way to convert those files to PDF?
    I dont want to open the file with OpenOffice and than convert it because sometimes it ruines the file. (if the file is not in english for example)
    Every result for "Convert to PDF" (or something similar) returns apps that covert PDF to MS files.

    I thought about something that can be great: (dunno if it is possible)
    Some clean app (located in the desktop maybe) that you can "throw" in any legit file and it returns PDF file. clean app without any sophisticated settings.

    Mac OS X has been able to do it for years. Go to the Print menu and in the lower left, click on the button that says "PDF" and choose "Save as PDF...".

    Last I checked, TextEdit can open .doc files.

    Thank you:)

    But bean doesn't open PPT. (I think?)

    and I really want to convert the file without opening it. (you can't print it without opening it?)
    because when I open some files (that include languages other than english it doesn't handle it well)
