1 1000053690 2014-03-10T15:19:34-06:00 BestNotes recommends printing documents to PDF. Documents converted to PDF can be read on any platform using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. This can be downloaded from Adobe's website at Adobe.com. For more information on the PDF document format, see the Wikipedia page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pdf. Additionally, free PDF printer software is available making it possible to convert any document to PDF simply by printing it. This makes it convenient for BestNotes users to create PDF documents from their BestNotes documentation and then email them to third parties. 1000084303 false Create, Upload or Email PDF Documents 1 2015-07-31T15:47:31-06:00 1 1 2014-03-10T15:42:23-06:00 0 0 Built in Print to PDF programs: Windows 10 (Microsoft print to PDF) Mac (Print to PDF option) There are many free PDF printer drivers available on the web. We recommend both CutePDF Writer and PDFCreator. CutePDF is light, fast, and straight-forward. It handles all basic PDF printing needs. PDFCreator is slightly more complex, but is also more powerful and has the added ability to print to many image formats. It is very configurable and has a queue mode allowing you to spool up multiple documents, even printed from different applications, and then combine them into a single PDF. Both applications are completely free and are spyware/adware free.  NOTE: Installation of CutePDF and PDFCreator give the option to install Add-ons (e.g. Web Browser), and the option to set a default search engine.  Just make sure to un-check the unwanted options. Once a PDF is created, use any printer locally installed on your computer. Local Printer Setup is independent of BestNotes software. Direct download links:   CutePDF Writer     PDF Creator After installing either PDF printer driver, a new printer in the Printers and Faxes area will appear. They are both configurable when printing in the same way as any other configured printer's settings. Also, PDFCreator installs an application that can be run which is used to configure all of its advanced settings.
