Piece of cake. Adobe Acrobat lets you print to a file just like you print 
to a printer. I don't know how it works on Wintel iron but on my Mac all 
I do is select 'Print to File' from the usual print dialog box, and it 
makes a pdf file. You can add whatever security notes, signatures and 
annotations you want within the Acrobat program itself. It works with all 
the software I use including programs like MSWord 5.1a that are 10 years 
old. And the pdfs are totally cross-platform and already compressed.
