print to pdf for system 7

Hello,

I have some old school files on a Mac IIci system 7 that I would like to recover. I am looking for a method to print documents to a PDF that will preserve the original format and appearance of the file.

My alternate solution is to print out with a laserwriter and scan in via an OCR program.

I've used this on 7.6.1 before. Not sure if it'll work on older versions but it's worth a try:

Thanks for the link, aladds. That could be very useful on older machines.

Thanks, I found the link to the printtopdf extension. Recently I found a source for Adobe Acrobat 3 which should work under system 7.

Here is the link: (edit by eeun: Link removed. Please check the Applefritter AUP. Acrobat, even an old version, is still considered copyrighted material)

The next problem I have is transferring the files between pc and mac but that's a separate topic.
