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 !.


Good alternative to Microsoft Print to PDF

about doPDF · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.


One of the best to personalyse your page size !

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 Encryption

No option to encrypt a pdf file.
There are other better free alternatives.


Like what?

Are there any pdf encryption apps without any crap inside?
