I use PDFCreator to convert my MS Word documents to PDF Format.


Nice job. I really like the comics and wallpapers.

Anybody think that Cody's Club Site may be located here as well?



Good luck with the editing... It appears that my camera also, by Kodak, outputs videos in .mov format.

I found a program, by Waseo, called TextArranger. It seems like it may do what you want. I tried once, and it is pretty good, for free.

Also, much smaller that MS Word to use



I'll be interested in posting some software reviews I do, of free software. I will be unable to post frequently (daily), but enough (1-2 times per week).

Nice animation... There is a good chance that the animation will be put on my website, linking to (and a credit to nudone)


I tried it before, and it is well done. The presentation editor is excellent and is able to insert Powerpoint files. It does have a few minor bugs, but overall it is excellent. Helps with displaying Powerpoint presentations on computers, without Powerpoint.


Mostly Visual Basic and Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET)

I recently tried out Scribus, and it was fine for most purposes. The program does take some time to load if you have a lot of fonts installed, though. Overall, it is good to perfect. For the more advanced items, I use Inkscape (

I use PDFCreator. The program is quick and converts documents quickly.
I don't know why, but PrimoPDF would not run on my computer (why I use PDFCreator)
