Not that I know of. PDF, while being broadly accepted, is a proprietary format developed by Adobe.

I felt that creating PDF files was important enough to me that I finally plunked down the cash for the full version of Acrobat. I'm glad I did.

However, have a look at PDFZONE.COM and PLANETPDF.COM that provide access to alternate tools.

Just cruising through my local computer paper and they were reviewing Corel WordPerfect Family Pack3. This includes a copy of WordPerfect (the 'other' word processor) v9. Here's a quote:

"...most impressively, it will create PDF documents."

And for only CA$149 (that's about US$100 on a straight currency conversion)!

Check out the following article:

(remove any spaces in there). It has links to about a dozen different products. But honestly, I think eBob is right, I've tried a couple of them, but in theend nothing was as good as Adobe's Distiller for quality and ease of use, and I think it's been a worthwhile investment

If you would like a full version copy of adobe Acrobat 5.0, please go to Musiccity.com and click on Morpheus. Under the search box type Acrobat. There should be a list of files that come up. Click on one and download away.
