Typora is a great competitor to other Markdown to PDF converter software in this list. Exporting a Markdown file to PDF is definitely possible here. But, it supports many other formats for Markdown conversion that make it a good alternative to other software present in this list.

Apart from MD to PDF and other format conversion support, it lets you view as well as edit Markdown file. However, it doesn’t let you preview the output, which is supported in other software mentioned here.
Some other unique features like different themes, focus mode (to blur rest of the content and show the current line in normal mode), add image, hyperlink, etc., make it a very useful Markdown software.

MDCharm has also easily managed its place in this free Markdown to PDF converter list. It supports feature to add multiple Markdown files on its interface that makes it special than other software. Thus, once you have added different Markdown files in separate tabs on its interface, you can export all of those files as PDF files, one after another.

Its interface reminds me of Notepad++ interface. When Markdown files are added to its interface, you can view them and also preview output of any Markdown file side by side. Markdown editing is also supported in this software. So, you can make necessary changes in Markdown file (if needed) and then save your Markdown file as PDF file.
Other features like take print of Markdown file, show/hide output preview, save Markdown in the original format, etc., also available that you can use.
CuteMarkEd is also a good software that lets you convert Markdown to PDF format file. It also comes with Markdown viewer, editor, and converter features. One of its features that caught my attention is its navigation pane. This makes adding a Markdown file on its interface very easy. You don’t have to use Open menu and Browse for a Markdown file in a separate window. Just use its navigation pane and select the Markdown file.
It shows Markdown file content and output preview within its interface side by side. You can first edit the Markdown file (if needed) and then export it as PDF format using File menu.
