    "Simple and does what it's supposed to do"

    April 3, 2005  |   By Scott Gardener


    This is a simple virtual printer program, that allows you to "print" via your standard print commands to PDF rather than to an actual hardware printer. Though a number of other freeware virtual PDF printers were available, I chose this one based on prior reviews posted here.

    The installation process was smooth and uneventful, and test-runs went flawlessly. So far, it has performed well. It is stable and doesn't crash. It's also easy to use and to the point.

    Though the program is lacking in some features (see cons below), a professional version is available. The free version does not nag you in any way into buying the upgraded version--this is a welcome plus! It is also free of spyware and indeed shows the GNU license agreement, indicating it to be open-source.


    The only drawback noticed so far is that documents such as printed to PDF lose hyperlinks and any graphics used as a background. This is a small price to pay for something with no price.

    (Though it may lack other advanced features, I do not see this as a major drawback, as I downloaded it while looking for a "point-and-shoot" program for capturing downloadable forms and certificates.)
