Get My Ancestors Now works great. It is a little slow creating the file but the resulting file is a complete data base you can use with your PAF program.
One thing to beware of is that if the ancestry or descent you download hasn't been cleaned up by someone previously, you may get data that is incorrect or incomplete. Possibly even a false ancestral line. The program takes the showing data on each person it is asked to collect - not the complete data in the person's folder in newFamilySearch.
Otherwise it will be a great program especially for those who don't already have a family tree on their machine.
