Hi!
Thank you for a great program!
doPDF is vary easy to use.
I did some testing and have a question.
I "printed" a word doc and looked at the quality.

Why is the doPDF looking this way?
Regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas, there are some problems with the word document that's why it's not converted well:

- first of all, in the word document you've embedded another word document; this is not good because the size of the pdf will increase 10-fold, so what you'll need to do is double-click on the image (to open the embedded word document) and after that save the word doc separatelly

- with the newly saved word doc, make sure you adjust the size of the doc from page setup, as now it shows as an A4 with custom margins that resemble a Letter format - dopdf will create it in Letter format if you don't use custom size, so it will stretch it additionally
I did the adjustments mentioned above, and the resulting PDF size created by doPDF was a small 9Kb file, compared to what it created when the doc was embedded (around 600Kb) and the quality of the image is better than Cutepdf's is.
