pdfmoto:- http://www.pdfmoto.com/ Free(9529 KB). Windows NT/XP/2000/2002.

PDFMoto is an automated web publishing software that converts any MS Word, Excel, Visio document into PDF format and can automatically upload it to your web site and create an index page, linking to the files. In fact, it can create entire web sites, fully automatically. The program uses a centralized approach, that allows you to specify a local folder, and any document saved to that folder will be automatically converted and saved to a publishing folder. From there, it can be uploaded to your web site. The entire process can run fully automatic, you save a Word document to your specified folder, it is converted and added to the web site without further interaction on your end. Navigation and linking are automatically created and the look and feel can be matched with your existing designs using a powerful XML template system. You can even choose to have it create PHP or ASP pages. PDFMoto monitors the source document structure, detects documents that have been added, deleted or amended and reflects these changes by automatically updating the site. Additional features include browser based document submission, document management, unlimited web site destinations and support for Meta schemes. The free version can maintain a web site with up to 50 documents and adds a small, very discrete `Create with...` watermark to the pages. The features of the software are -
