Yeah, but again - no way to select the resulting properties of pdf file (not that I expect "Print to File" to do that). And the main thing - "Print to File" is not available from certain application, namely Acrobat Reader. Both Cups-PDF and Print to File are okay for very basic "let's grab that page" kind of thing, but no use if you need to create a pdf file with specific qualities.

Incidentally, I have found a program, PDF Studio (not OSS, unfortunatelly) - looks almost as good as Acrobat Pro - basic editing, typewriter, interactive form handling. No way to create or edit interactive fields though, and no printing control comparable to Distiller ...
