I've never had a problem making pdf's from my schematics. I use a postscript
printer, setup to print to file, then use ghostscript to convert the
postscript to a pdf. The output quality depends on which PS printer you
choose; generally Apple ones are pretty good.

I've got the whole lot running from a make file, so that once the postscript
files are generated, I get a single pdf document with schematics, design
notes, pcb layout (overlay etc), bill of materials, and other documentation.

Total software cost is $0 (all free), except for the time spent writing the
make file, which has already made up for its cost by time saved having to
manually collate the files.
