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.
