Convert to PDF by printing from Desktop applications
Like most other PDF creators, the PC considers gDoc Creator to be a printer. You can create PDF files by hitting
When you print to one of the gDoc Creator Printers from a desktop application you can create PDF or XPS document files:
- 1. In your desktop application save the document and select the Print option.

Convert to PDF using Add-ins for MS Office Applications
Though gDoc creator is claimed to convert to PDF using Add-ins for MS Office Applications, we were not successful in getting the gDoc creator Add-ins installed onto MS Office applications.If you were successful, you can create XPS or PDF documents from within MS Office applications.
To create PDF or XPS documents from a Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 document, click on the Add-in toolbar icon (2003) or gDoc Ribbon Menu (2007) and select Create > PDF or Create > XPS. Alternatively, select gDoc Creator > Create file > PDF or gDoc Creator > Create file > XPS from the File menu (2003 only). A gDoc Creator “working” message appears followed by a Create PDF or XPS Browser dialog that allows selection of the various security options that can be applied to a PDF file. These security options are the same as the options provided within the gDoc Setup manager. For more information see Security tab and Add-ins for Microsoft Office.
If you have not previously saved your Microsoft Word or Excel document before attempting to create an XPS or PDF document, a Save As dialog will appear prompting you to save it. Once saved the conversion will continue. If you have not saved your Microsoft PowerPoint document before conversion a “Please save your document before printing it” message will appear. You must save the document before conversion using the Add-ins.
Secure PDF Files
You can not only create good quality PDF files from MS office documents but you can also convert PDF to Word and/or XPS files to MS Word documents in a single step. Converting PDF to Word is as easy as Word to PDF with gDoc Creator.
Other than creating PDF files of enterprise quality, you can also secure the PDF files by password protecting PDF from being viewed, edited, printed, copied, annotated – either singly or in any combination. Secure PDF is just a few clicks away.
