How to Convert CHM to PDF

Everyone needs help with their favourite application every now and again. When faced with technical problems or looming questions, you would naturally turn to help files for assistance.
Help Files usually come in the form of well-structured, easy-to-follow how-to topics in the CHM format. By clicking on a topic, you are transferred to a document with instructions or tips to help you with a certain task. At the end of each text, there is usually a list of related topics that also open up into other Help Files.

Each Help File is accompanied by an index, a list of contents, and a search engine for finding specific topics.
Like with most digital documents, you may want to save the Help File for future reference or for offline reading later on. Unfortunately, there is no Save option. You can, however, save the information and formatting by converting your Help File into the PDF format. To do so you need to download PDF Converter Elite here.
