This program lets you convert your documents to PDF, the most popular document format for portability nowadays. NovaPDF Printer Professional installs itself as a virtual PDF printer driver so you can convert your documents just by printing them. The process is extremely easy. If you know how to print you know how to convert any document to PDF. Just select novaPDF Printer Professional in the Print Dialog Box and press the “Print” button. Another window will appear asking for the name and location of the new file. The conversion speed depends on the document’s complexity but in general it is quite fast, you’ll have your new PDF Document created in few seconds.

With NovaPDF Printer Professional you can choose any resolution from 72 dpi to 2400 dpi and you can control the size of the page, for example, Letter, Legal or define your own. You can also include title, subject, author and keywords in your PDF file. This document information helps other software to catalog your PDF files.

You can save time defining different profiles for future use, each with its own settings for page size, resolution, fonts, compression, document info and save settings. With this Edition you can compress, down sample or convert text and graphics to reduce the file size. You can define multiple text or image watermarks and add them to individual pages or the entire PDF document, and of course you have more control over margins.

If you are concerned about security, you can encrypt your document using 40/128 bit encryption and set restrictions for viewing, printing, modifying, copying and annotating. Furthermore, you can add PDF hyperlinks and automatically generate bookmarks to facilitate navigation.

You can print PDF documents from Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Fireworks, even Notepad++. In fact you can convert documents from any application with printing support. This program works great with Windows Vista and can be installed on 64 bit operating systems. It doesn’t require any additional software and the files created are smaller than the ones created by other applications.

The driver interface is translated into English, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese from Brazil, Portuguese from Portugal, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

NovaPDF Printer is an alternative to the expensive Adobe Acrobat. NovaPDF comes in many different versions: the Lite Edition for starters, the Standard Edition with added functionality and the Professional Edition for power users. Each edition has a Desktop and Server version, the difference is that with the server license you can share it on your network. There’s even a FREE version named doPDF with basic functionality. By the way, if you just want to convert your documents to PDF and are not interested in formatting, security or sharing your DPDF printer, doPDF is by far your best choice. If you want all the functionality available to create your PDF Documents, you should buy NovaPDF Printer Professional Edition.
