Anyone use any of the free PDF creators? I was thinking of getting the Adobe Profesional but then I found 2 sites listed under the freeware replacements page. I was wondering if they work well. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

Have you looked into the .pdf feature in Open Office 2.0?

Before I started using Acrobat Pro, CutePDF was the freebie I used.
Does a good job. You'll also need to install the Ghostscript converter downloadable on the same page.

Word has no built-in "save as" .pdf function.
In the case of third party .pdf conversion utilities, you typically use a "print to" function instead.
If you have an MS Office\Word compatable .pdf app, such as Acrobat, the "Convert to .PDF" option will be in Word's toolbar, though it is Acrobat doing the actual conversion.

i've found an alternative to adobe acrobat. I've been using it for a couple of months now. it's called nitro pdf (nitropdf.com). it isn't FREE but it is 1/3 of the price of Adobe acrobat. it installs as a printer on your computer and adds create pdf buttons to word and others...
