Any software that attempts to present an alternative to Adobe's sluggish PDF software is fine by me and novaPDF does an impressive job at rivalling the industry standard package.
novaPDF is a PDF creator that allows you to easily create high-quality searchable PDF files. The first thing you'll notice is that it's very easy to use because once installed, all you have to do is select "Print" from the file menu of virtually any application you're using. The reason being is that novaPDF acts like a virtual printer. You can create just about any type of PDF file including bookmarks, PDF links, public and private documents as well as PDF watermarks and perform PDF compression. Although it's very straightforward with a fully comprehensive tutorial and manual, there's even free support which is unusual in an unregistered piece of software (although registered users are dealt with first). You have pretty much full control over what you add to the documents including the ability to embed fonts and insert images of different resolutions. If your images or text are unusually large - don't worry, you can compress the entire document afterwards no matter what it contains.
At just a fraction of the cost of Adobe's software, novaPDF is a superb answer to your PDF needs and it also enables you to do your bit for the environment by using less paper.
