If you’re using a Mac, then the functionality is built into the OS. Go to File > Print, then choose from the PDF menu in the lower left.

If not, then http://www.doc2pdf.net looks like it does a pretty good job. It’s a little annoying, but very painless.

Nope, not using a Mac. Thanks for the website!

If you have a google (or gmail) account, you can upload your document as a google document, and then export it as a pdf. Google documents have the added bonus of being accessible from any computer at any time. I use them for everything. :)

Sweet! I’ve used Google Documents but did not realize I could do that with them. Thanks!

I used PDFCreator when I was on Windows. It adds a fake printer that can be used to create a PDF.
