I use Adobe Acrobat most of the time and there are instances wherein I encountered glitches as I go about my work. There are times where the fonts cannot be seen and sometimes printing errors occur. It is really a hassle! Good thing that Acrobat Distiller was created by developers of Adobe. It addressed all the issues and problems I have with Adobe Acrobat. At the same time, this utility tool also provided other features that I find practical. It can create PDF files. These files are taken from PostScript applications. By doing so, PostScript files can be converted to PDF format. It will make it easier to read through Adobe Reader. And since Acrobat Distiller is light, it does not eat up my PC’s resources. It is also easy to use and provides data about the status of the conversion process which I find helpful. If you are using Adobe Acrobat like me, you should definitely take advantage of this utility tool.

An Excellent Software to Centralize Postscript to Adobe PDF File Creation

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, June 27, 2014

One component of the Adobe Acrobat family products is the Distiller. It is the main engine for switching PostScript files into PDF documents. Acrobat Distiller is the essential one. Some software can create PDF files from within their program, but frequently simply acts as a frontend to Distiller, which should also be installed.

With the Distiller, I can select settings used to convert files to PDFs, security options, and font information. I can also use its window to monitor the jobs I’ve lined up for PDF conversion. Distiller lets me queue PostScript documents that I create in managing the applications and then monitor them all over the PDF conversion process.

Also with this update, few bugs were fixed, along with a problem with PDF Mark operations bigger than 128K where some documents consist of type 3 fonts did not display or print correctly correlated to the original PostScript language documents, and an issue where the addition of Watched Folders sometimes crash Distiller.


  • Can run as a standalone utility or from within other applications
  • Can create reliable and compact files


  • Minimum system requirements for PC
