Create PDF FAQ

Convert JPG to PDF (or any other image file format) in just two steps by using Investintech free online PDF creator.

  1. Drag & drop a JPG file on the PDF creator tool or click on it to browse for an image to upload it for conversion to PDF
  2. Wait for the JPG to PDF conversion to complete and click on the download link to get your created PDF file for free

After the free PDF creation is complete, you can choose to convert another file. No daily limits, no watermarks, no email needed.

Note that the resulting PDF will have the same characteristics as a scanned PDF. Therefore, in order to edit such documents, you’ll need an app with Optical Character Recognition (OCR). Check out our free PDF OCR tool for a quick, online solution.

You can open your file in Word or Excel and print the file to PDF:

  1. Double-click the file to open it
  2. Click on the File tab and select the Print option
  3. From the Printer drop-down menu, select the Able2Extract Professional Printer (if you don’t have Able2Extract Pro installed, get it here)
  4. Click on the Print icon
  5. Choose the name and location for your file and click OK to create PDF free (In the Print Dispatcher you can also select Options… to add metadata, apply password protection and set permissions, compress the created PDF, and more)

Alternatively, you can create PDF free with Able2Extract Professional:

  1. Run Able2Extract Professional*
  2. Click on the Create PDF icon in the main toolbar under the File tab and select Create a PDF From an Existing Document
  3. Select the file you want to convert to PDF
  4. Go back to the File tab and click on the Save / Save As icon to save the PDF you created

Note: Before proceeding to step 2, you can click on the PDF Creation Options under the File tab to add metadata, apply password, choose whether to retain hyperlinks, bookmarks, and attachments from a source document.

If you don’t need advanced PDF creation options and just want to convert Word or Excel documents to PDF, you can use our free PDF creator tool on this page without any limits. Just upload any printable file and the tool will create PDF free. Finally, download the file to your computer.

When you have a PDF that requires you to fill out information, you can save your time and money by avoiding printing and filling out information manually, before scanning it back to a digital format for sending it back online.

Here’s how to create a PDF form and make an interactive PDF fillable:

  1. Open a PDF in Able2Extract Professional
  2. Go to the Edit Form tab
  3. Depending on what information is required of you, choose between Add Text Box, Add Check Box, Add Radio Button, or Add Signature features
  4. Left-click on the document where you want an interactive form field to appear (you can resize the field by dragging its handles after the field has been placed)
  5. Go back to the File tab, input the required information, and Save the file to prepare it for sending

The ability to create PDFs in batch (one file - one PDF) or to create a single PDF from multiple digital documents is one of the latest additions to the Able2Extract Professional PDF toolbox.

You can find the Batch PDF Creator tool under the File tab.

When you click on the button, the Batch PDF Creator interface will let you add files and even whole directories to the PDF creation queue. You can output PDF files to a source or user-specified directory or choose to merge all resulting PDFs into a single file.

When ready, click on the Create button to start the batch PDF creation process.

Password protecting your PDF is a great way of securing all the vital information stored in the document, because it can be opened and viewed only by people who have the right credentials to access it.

Since you’re probably working with confidential information that is not meant to be seen by everyone, the best way to create secure, password protected PDF files is to use professional, desktop PDF software.

A secure way to protect your files is to use Able2Extract Professional to encrypt your confidential information and make your PDF files secure. You can utilize its advanced encryption to apply 256-bit password protection, set up advanced file permission options such as who can print and copy the document, and more.

On top of that, Able2Extract Professional allows you to add extra layers of security with the ability to permanently redact sensitive information and PDF watermarks.

Alternatively, you can password protect your PDF using one of the available online tools. However, we don’t advise doing so especially when dealing with confidential information as you would have to upload your file to an external server and input the password details as well.

In order to combine or merge multiple PDFs into a single PDF, you will need to have access to a PDF editor tool that can perform that task.

There are two ways to go about this: to use an offline, desktop PDF editor or an online alternative.

Desktop PDF editor software such as Able2Extract Professional enables users to easily merge multiple PDFs into a single PDF file that can be opened and viewed on any device or operating system. On top of that, it offers advanced PDF creation capabilities such as to convert 300+ printable file formats to PDF, batch create hundreds of PDFs at once, create password-encrypted PDFs with various file permissions applied, and much more. If your work consists of handling and creating a large volume of PDF files daily, you should try Able2Extract Professional.

Alternatively, there are free online PDF editors that are simple to use and easily accessible if you have an active internet connection. If you don’t need any of the advanced options, you can use these online tools to merge your PDFs into a single document with minimal effort.

Converting printable file formats such as Word and Excel to PDF on iPhone and Android mobile devices using Investintech’s free online PDF creator is the same as on any PC.

Simply, open the browser on your mobile device and navigate to the free online PDF creator tool on this webpage.

From there, upload the file you want to create a PDF from, and once the creation process is complete, download the created PDF file to your iOS or Android powered device.

If you’re looking for an online tool for Mac to convert your files to universally compatible PDF documents, you can use our free online PDF creator. It works on macOS and any other operating system as long as you have an active internet connection. You can almost instantly convert 300+ different file formats to PDF by simply uploading your file and downloading the converted PDF to your computer. If you need more advanced features such as to create secure PDFs with added password encryption, batch PDF creation, or to create fillable PDF forms, try Able2Extract Professional - our desktop PDF creator, converter & editor for macOS.

There are three different ways to create PDF documents on Windows 10 or older:

    1. Create PDF with desktop PDF software

The first way to create PDF files on Windows 11 is to use a professional, offline PDF creator software such as Able2Extract Professional.

Our desktop PDF creator enables you to produce quality PDF files from various formats without any formatting inconsistencies. You can create a blank PDF, create PDFs from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, images and more, batch create multiple PDFs at once and even combine and merge multiple files into a single PDF document. Able2Extract also allows users to add file information, password encryption and a wide range of file permissions to newly created PDFs.

Simply open up your document in its native application and go File>Print. Select Print as PDF under Printer and click on the Print button. Finally, name your document and click on the Save button to create a PDF.
