DocFly Pro Tip: The most common way to create a PDF file

The most common way to create a PDF file is by saving a file (such as a Word document) as a PDF. This has been possible since Microsoft Office included this capability following the launch of Office 2010. If you’re using Windows 10, a native PDF printer is included which means that you can print any printable document to a PDF. If you already have a PDF and would like to convert it to another format, we offer a range of additional tools, like a PDF to PNG converter that are simple and free to use. If you're using a Mac or don't have access to Microsoft Office but still want to create your own PDF file, the free creator tool from DocFly will provide an accurate PDF conversion of your file.
