7-PDF Maker is a powerful tool to convert directly a wide range of files in other formats to high quality PDF files, without the need to install GhostScript or a virtual PDF printer. You might find that PDF files created by a virtual PDF printer usually do not contain 'clickable' hyperlinks and bookmarks, but the PDF files converted by 7-PDF Maker do.
This free program is not only able to convert files generated by Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OpenOffice, StarOffice, etc., but also convert images, text or web based files to PDF. A complete list of over 80 supported file formats is covered here for conversion to PDF.
The program comes with a Command line version or a Windows Explorer integration. You can either run the program or just right click a file to do the conversion.
The homepage is currently available only in German, but the program supports user interface in English. A manual in English is available.
Should you decide not to install the program, try 7-PDF Web Portal, which closely resembled the program interface, for online conversion of files to PDF.
