    I've had huge problems with PDF compression, but so far InDesign has been the least terrible

    Let's be clear, there is no "best PDF creation software"...

    Because each of them has more or less defined purpose-s, has advantages and inconvenients, is more or less efficient, is more or less easy to use, and produce PDF more or less adapted for the (specific) use (or uses) of 12Fontesque (who, everybody has surely forgotten, asked the question and never came back to get more explanations)...

    And because making a Christmas wish-list PDF to send by e-mail to Santa Claus is far, far, far, far, far away and different than making a PDF for a 400 pages catalog printed in 2 millions copies... and will not need the same reliability nor the same quality, and for (at least) these reasons will not need the same PDF maker.

    (althought it is possible to use Acrobat Distiller to make à Christmas wish-list PDF... but using "MS Word 2013" () for a 400 pages catalog printed in 2 millions copies is so much far beyond stupidity that I cannot find words strong enough to say it??? please, help needed!!!)



    So, back to the question... the only good answer is: it depends of the use of the PDF!

    For Print PDF, professionnal or not, offset or digital or other printing techniques, there is no doubt and no other solution: to get PDF enough reliable to be printed in more than 10 copies you MUST use either Acrobat Distiller or the professionnal dedicated softwares from Adobe (InDesign, Illustrator) or QuarkXPress
    (I'm in a good mood today , so why not CorelDraw ???).

    For Office PDF, mostly made to be displayed on a screen, spread by e-mail (even to Santa Claus) or printed once or twice on a USB-desktop-50-bucks-inkjet-printer, it often doesn't really matter... So, you can use the export/save PDF fonctionnalities of your office software, or the first software (or piece of crap) downloaded for free from internet and claiming beeing able to output PDF can also do the trick... for exemple: NitroPDF, PrimoPDF, PDFcreator, MacOSX Quartz or even Preview!



    That beeing said, we are on a Print forum... and Print is normaly the most common use... so, "MS Word 2013" as a PDF editing software is either a joke (that made me laugh so crazily that I almost peed my panties ), or a completely stupid, insane and silly answer



    ***********



    And to finish, I find stupid this kind of threads, where a fuzzy generic question is asked without the needed precisions, mainly "What is the best something" (best imposition soft, best fonts manager, best layout soft...), without knowing what is planed to do with it...
    And then, instead of asking few more questions, trying to determine what are the needs, and which soft will match the best, most people "drop" laconic short answers, like "XXX is the best (for me)" or "I like YYY", often without any argumentation, nor explanation, nor context, for these reasons beeing in fact completely useless because matching ONLY their case, more or less far away from the original (still unknown) needs...

    Did you read my post??? probably not: your "answer", means nothing, has no argumentation nor explanation, is simply useless!!!


    (and, for your information, AI is of the worst softwares for creating PDF, unless you know perfectly how Illustrator make by defaut hybrid PDF containing .AI datas, which are mostly simply unuseful, just fatting the files, and can sometimes become quite dangerous )

    Acrobat Pro. But I've sometimes encountered problems with some fonts and therefore been forced to use some other (free) pdf creators.

    Becoming more professional and a little bit more in need, you will see as I saw that Corel does not fulfill all
