PDF_Maker - ProAction based utility for making PDFS from Postscript
Version 1.3

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


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. 


Unpack archive copy script an icon to location of your choice and perhaps
leave out on the desktop.

If you have a later version of ghostscript than the PS4 standard 8.54 you may 
need to edit the paths to the statds file, see below.


Ghostscript for the actual conversion. ProAction for the GUI. Python


Start from shell or double click on icon.

The GUI contains 4 gadgets.

Page Size: Chooser - the available page sizes defined in the ghostscript
           statds file GHOSTSCRIPT:Data/8.54/lib/gs_statd.ps and offers 
           them for selection in this gadget. 

Quality: Chooser - the ghopstscript pdfwrite device offers 5 standard 
         preset qualities.

screen   -  very low quality optimised for screen viewing 
          (but probably 1990s type screens :-))
ebook    -  better quality still quite small file
          (suitable for viewing on modern display)
printer  - optimised for printing on a home printer

prepress - highest quality optimised for send to professional printer
default  - generalised settings for acceptable quality across range of uses.

Input File: Postscript file to convert

Output File: Final destination PDF
