Making PDFs from any app in Vista

Convert to PDF from any application by simply 'printing' to the PrimoPDF printer - it couldn't be easier! Within minutes, you can create and append high-quality PDFs by converting from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and virtually any other printable file type.

The only downer is that files inherit the properties of the original file that was used to generate them! So, with AutoCAD (which under Vista you have run as admin) all output PDFs are viewable by local admins only - so (even though I'm a domain admin) I have to adjust their properties before they are usable! Anyhow - in the absence of Adobe making Acrobat work properly with Vista this is a good solution.
