I have hundreds of old CD labels created in AppleWorks, which I will soon no longer be able to open because I will be moving to Macs with OS's that no longer support PPC-based applications. I'd like to save each one as a .pdf file, so in the future I can open and view them for reference, and even print one if necessary...

John, it looks like some time was spent on developing the application but I just wonder what problem it is really trying to solve? I mean preview will save any image to PDF directly. Text edit will print directly to pdf. You're asking $20 for an application that is duplicating basic features that everyone already has.

Agreed.
20 dollars for this?
Everything, Pages, Keynote, Preview, Numbers, TextEdit and even some random software that I have has this thing called "Export as" and "PDF".

Best thing is, it is free. Pages is $20 too. I don't see how this application can be useful as Pages even in other ways.

Exporting things as PDF. No one needs this application. I do not have a reason and neither should anyone as well to have this application.

Agreed. The only thing that this seems to offer that can't easily be duplicated using Preview is 'many-to-many' conversion of text or graphics files to PDF. I'm sure someone out there has a need to do that, but it is pretty niche.

Normally, if I were doing that, it would be because I wanted to combine them into a single file - which is easily done by dragging files into the Preview sidebar.

Now, if someone could fix the Microsoft automator actions so that I could bulk-convert and concatenate Word documents again, I might be convinced to part with a few bucks. I'd only just discovered that facility before Microsoft broke it. Grrr.

Thanks for all of your opinions , I know some of software can also do the same thing, but most of them cannot get the best quality after conversion. but Amacsoft PDF creator Mac app can get the high quality after conversion. It will help users save more time.

Hi John,

Thank you for your offer but I will decline and offer you a suggestion.

If you are going to post here at MacRumors as a way of generating interest in a product, you should be cognisant of spelling and grammar in your message. In order to say thanks for MacRumors support, you first need to build our confidence in the product that Amacsoft successfully released.

And so on...

I understand that English may not be your first language. But, when promoting for commercial gain in an English language forum, you should take more care.

Good luck with your endeavour.

Actually I work for a university and we try to convert a lot of handouts to PDF to put them in our VLE for students. I've recently had my office desktop switched from PC to Mac (yay) and I've found that the Mac versions of Word and Acrobat don't generate PDFs from Word documents that include any working hyperlinks - while some browsers can interpret text that includes www or http as links, the actual PDF lost all clickable links. Only Pages can do that, and that can often screw up the formatting of our academics' word format originals.

Update: just tried your free trial - it only seems to open docx format word documents (not the older doc format) and it seems to strip out images and custom fonts. Oh well... I'll keep looking
