PDF_Maker - ProAction based utility for making PDFS from Postscript Version 1.4 This is a simple GUI based utility to create PDFs from postscript files particularly those created from wordprocessors such as Wordworth. It's an extended version of the application created in my ProAction tutorial http://www.broad.ology.org.uk/docs/amiga/proaction/00_Starting_ProAction.html This version extends the tutorial version by adding an additional option to set the quality of the created PDF. Version 1.3 shows how to add a version string and adds the option to create a PNG image version of the PDF as well. Version 1.4 adds the option to create 4 A6 Leaflets on an A4 page from an A4 original. Makes use of tempfile module and multline text syntax.
