Still a very valid choice on Windows 10. Even with the Microsoft print to PDF function, Bullzip gives you more options and results in smaller files sizes. I wanted to export a simple word doc with custom fonts and no images. Words own export to pdf either changed the text to bitmap, or if disabled resulted in thick black lines. Using the print to PDF of Microsoft did result in the correct rendering, but the pdf was 900KB in size for just text. Trying Bullzip resulted in 47KB.
I also like that you can set the title and author and the default page view for the PDF. However it does take some time until the save dialog opens, so the program is not that fast.


Head line & footing line of pdf-files not OK

In the head line and footing line there should be the URL, date and "page X of N". The font of this information was defective, so that this information is not legible. In spite of some search I found for it no functioning settings.

On my desktop Dell, Bullzip PDF Printer installs itself smoothly (W7/64). On my HP EliteBook 2530p laptop I was never able ton install it. None of the solutions present on their forum was able to help me. I gave up.
So, try it if you want, but do not be surprised if it does not install without any solution (their install log file is useless most of the time).
When installed how ever it is a very nice PDF printer, works fine.


How can you say the install log is useless most of the time. You had one time it installed correctly and one time it didn't which means one time you may have read the install log. For all you know it was your computers fault.

Dear ruskelljd,
When I wrote I tried to install it on and HP EliteBook and said I was "never able" to install it it was clear in my mind, even if I did not mention it, that I tried many times, attempting to clean the registry from any reference to Bullzip in case that could have been a cause of the pb. I also made a thorough search of any possible file left during install and tried to remove all of them.
Each time the install log did not provide me of any clue why it could not install the product (no err msg nor code).

That is "How I CAN say..."

I could nevetheless install other PDF print and editing software as well as other Tools without any troubles. So I doubt that the problem lied in my computer's configuration rather than a case not tested by Bullzip. But you are entitled to your own opinion, for what it is worth.
