Editors' Review

PDFCreator is easy to use yet creates high-quality PDFs and many other document types from the Print command or shell menu, for free. If that sounds like a recommendation, it is.

Tools for creating PDF documents tend to fall somewhere between do-it-all packages with big names (and price tags to match) and freeware stripped down to the basics. But simple is good, which is why PDF tools that install themselves as print drivers may be our favorite of all. That's how PDFCreator from Pdforge works, though that's not all it does.

PDFCreator's optional server installation mode can act as a network printer, but we chose the standard installation, which includes some optional downloads such as Images2PDF and PDFArchitect, plus some sample files and our choice of language and Help files. We chose all the extras and opted to add the tool to context menus as well as the Print menu. If you can print a document, you can use this tool. The steps are the same, with a screen full of fields to let us easily add Title, Author, Keywords, and more. You can also edit a document's Creation and Modify dates or instantly add the current date and time. Once you're finished, you can save, print, or e-mail your newly created PDF. PDFCreator creates more than PDFs, though, with the option to convert and save files in 13 formats, including bitmap, PostScript, and others.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 3.2.2
Since the beginning of May, we have seen an increasing number of one error type (called TaskCanceledException) across all versions of PDFCreator since the 2.x versions. As these versions have worked for years without this error, it seems that this is caused by a bug in the .Net framework that was introduced with a Windows update.

PDFCreator crashes with this error when the application was closing. Everything was processed and saved successfully, but at the end there was this exception. As a workaround, we are now catching and hiding this error when it occurs and hope that Microsoft will be able to fix this in the future.

We'd like to thank all users for submitting the error reports and helping us narrowing down this strange error.
