Streamlined conversion to PDF with callas pdfToolbox 5
Converting to PDF
While PDF is well established as the format for file exchange, it’s very common to receive other file formats from customers. Microsoft Word files are a typical example just as – still – PostScript and EPS files.
And probably you don’t receive just the one Word or PostScript file. So how do you deal with a whole folder of files, or with a regular in-flow of files you want to treat automatically?
callas pdfToolbox 5 converts many file formats into good-for-production PDF files
When callas pdfToolbox 5 will be released in April 2011, one of the great new features will be its additional support for PDF conversion. So how does that work?

2. Using the Switchboard
Open the Switchboard (using the “Tools > Switchboard” menu item) and select one of the conversion buttons in the Document group of the Switchboard.
This presents you with conversion options and the ability to convert the file to convert to PDF.
