Allows you to create PDF files from any printable document, save PDF forms.
CutePDF is a software utility that allows users to convert documents into PDF (Portable Document Format) files. It acts as a virtual printer, allowing you to create PDFs from various types of documents by “printing” them with CutePDF as the selected printer.
CutePDF is compatible with Windows operating systems. To use CutePDF, you will need to install both the CutePDF Writer software and a PS2PDF converter, which is included in the CutePDF installation package.
It’s important to note that CutePDF functions as a printer driver and converter rather than a full-fledged PDF editor. For advanced PDF editing functionalities, such as editing the content or structure of existing PDFs, additional software may be required.
