PDFCreator Review

Fernando Ortega
Virtual PDF printer can create PDF documents from most programs
A review of PDFCreator by Fernando Ortega

PDFCreator is a virtual printer with which you can create PDF files from any program. It installs in minutes and works just like a printer.

Creating a PDF with PDFCreator: To create a PDF with PDFCreator, hit CTRL P (or print) from any program like Microsoft Word and select PDFCreator as your printer. A dialog panel appears where you can fill in the details of the document title, author, subject, keywords, etc.

The buttons on the box allow PDFCreator print save the PDF, email it or put in queue. After a few seconds your new PDF document will be ready.

By default, PDFCreator will open with the default viewer, usually Adobe Acrobat Viewer or another if you have it installed. This behavior can be disabled by unchecking PDFCreator a box in the Print window.

Finally, in the PDFCreator options you can adjust the print quality, define actions to be executed before or after save or rename automatically define templates for printed documents.

PDFCreator is without doubt one of the best programs to print to PDF. Given the large number of existing PDF printers, PDFCreator is one of the best because of both its speed and configurability. If you're looking for a good virtual PDF printer, PDFCreator is definitely worth a look.

PDFCreator can encrypt PDF files, decrypt PDF files and install a virtual PDF printer.
