This is just a hint to anyone out there searching for info on this
topic. I was having problems getting documents from .nb format to
.pdf format using Acrobat Distiller or print to file. The reason I
had troubles with print to file was because I'm on a darned Window$
machine and choosing 'print to file' produces a .prn file, not .ps or
.pdf. Acrobat Distiller rendered mathematical documents horribly.
The solution came in the form of *yet more* software from Adobe.
Basically I just downloaded an Adobe PostScript printer driver from:
(or search for adobe postscript printer drivers)
Then I installed it, pretending it was a normal printer. Then I went
to config for the printer from Start->Settings->Printers and chose the
default output method as "C:\Windows\Desktop\*.pdf" or something like
that. This works beautifully! Just print to this 'fake' printer from
Mathematica and you're all set! Anyway, hope this helps if you were
looking for this info.
