Hi :)
From looking at files generated by other people i think it's easier to generate 
Pdfs in LibreOffice/OpenOffice.  From actually playing with various programs 
they seem to be just as easy but LO/AOO/OOo/"and the rest" seem to have easier 
access to more options and better defaults.  
Regards from
Tom :)
