If you need to convert a single ODT file to PDF, or in any case you don't have to transform a huge amount of documents at the same time, I strongly recommend that you contact LibreOffice o OpenOffice.

The procedure you need to follow is very simple. After opening the ODT file to be transformed into PDF (by double clicking on its icon or selecting the item apri from the menu Fillet of OpenOffice / LibreOffice) and go to the menu File> Export to PDF format.
In the window that opens, make sure that in the field of Quality a value of at least 90% and that in the drop-down menu Reduce image resolution an option equal to or greater than is selected 300 DPI (otherwise the quality of the PDF will not be the best). Then he presses the button Export, select the folder in which to save the final document and click on Save but I will complete the operation.
If you want, you can also set a password to protect the PDF from unauthorized access (user password) or from changes and printing (owner password) by selecting the tab Safety e clicking on your button Set password.
