Make this page better by adding screenshots to doPDF.
Very buggy (on Win7). After installed i could not use it for printer replace because all the time failed. Finally, when i wanted uninstall it, again problems.
The good new is they achieved the Microsoft Certified Partner. Lucky of me !.
I wasn't able to attach a PDF directly to a email message (gmail) because of the size of the file (>25 MB). I found out that the problem was the Microsoft Print to PDF software that was creating a 28 MB file from a cropped 2 MB file! This program is definitely better: it generated a 4 MB file. I still don't know why the file size is increasing when I'm reducing the number of pages, but it's working.
I used this in Win7 a lot. But Win10 comes with "Microsoft Print to PDF", so it might not be as useful anymore.
The other thing about this program is that it likes to notify you of updates regularly and even if you turn it off, it will still come up. You have to disable the scheduler in startup.
On the contrary of what is stated, doPDF depends on .NET . At least on the most recent versions.
Most of pdf printers allow to print into A4/Legal/Lettre/etc but not into specific sizes.
=> doPDF can do that on a very easy way !
No option to encrypt a pdf file.
There are other better free alternatives.
Are there any pdf encryption apps without any crap inside?

PROs & CONs of Bullzip PDF PRINTER over CutePDF Writer and qvPDF

PROs & CONs of CutePDF
CON: Installation of Ask Toolbar is suggested, but can be hooked away
CON: Installation of Driver Updater is suggested, but can be declined by hooking it away
PROs & CONs of qvPDF
PRO: qvPDF is a PDF creator for Windows, but you can also merge & split pdf-documents.
CON: it is difficult to select the folder and name of the printed PDF-File
CON: No complete uninstalling with deleting all files and folders . In case of a reinstallation because of a printing problem, you have the problem again because the old settings are used again.
