We can find out a little bit more about DocToPDFConverter if we access fromdoctopdf.com. Scanty information provided at the main website claims that DocToPDFConverter is an application that allows you to “perform simple conversions from .doc to .pdf and vice versa.” It also says that the program is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, which is odd because, once installed, DocToPDFConverter does not add any extensions. What’s more, the application is supposed to support various file types, including .png, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .pdf, .txt, and many others. Naturally, if you need to work with different types of file formats on a daily basis, DocToPDFConverter might look like a fairly useful tool.DocToPDFConverter screenshot
