One disadvantage of AA is that some fonts (Herculanum is the only one that I've had this with so far) are specifically protected by the designer can not be embedded in documents by AA which recoginses the protection. Often 3rd party software will ignore that and still embed the font. Again unlikely to be a problem with most everyday work.

Iíve looked on the adobe UK site, and it seems Acrobat 8 standard would fit the bill. There is a comparison of that with Acrobat Professional which offers a few more features and Acrobat 3D which offers a load more. Only you will know if you require either of those two over and above the standard. From what Iíve read before, Acrobat Elements is designed for many users over a network.
I only have humble version Acrobat 5 but it does all I need it to.

I can recommend Adobe Pagemaker, it includes Acrobat Distiller, a program for printing and creating PDFs from Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, etc ...
I use it by my own and it works without problems.
(Adobe Pagemaker is not cheap, maybe you can find a good offer at ebay.)

Thanks all.

I've downloaded the trial copy of Adobe Acrobat 8 and it is very easy to convert files to pdf.

I'll keep the 30 day trial but then afterwards may actually buy an older version - at the end of the day it's only the pdf creator I want/need.

Ashley, what problems have you found with 3rd party creators?

I use OpenOffice to create mine and so far I have found no problems. Text, fonts, symbols, pictures and formula have all been produced without fault.
