Win2PDF 10 has moved some of image-related file output options to a new printer called Win2Image. This feature is useful, for example, if you wanted to include a chart or graph from a proprietary program into another document. In this case, you’d simply print to a JPEG file and then insert the JPEG into the other document.
This new printer, which is installed by default and is included at no extra charge, also includes new image output options. It supports the following image formats:
Below is a short video that shows how Win2Image is used to create image files.
In Win2PDF 10, there is a new Add Win2PDF Printer option in the Win2PDF program group (which is accessible from the Windows Start menu or Start screen). This feature can be very useful if you want to dedicate a version of Win2PDF that has specific settings for a specific application, a type of company document, or a particular group of users.
For instance, consider if you were a Win2PDF Pro 10 user and you wanted to have special Win2PDF printer created that would: ALWAYS create a PDF file with a company watermark. ALWAYS password protect a document. Or ALWAYS save certain file types (e.g., invoices or weekly reports) to a specific folder location without any user prompting. And you could do all of this while still having the main Win2PDF printer reserved for normal interactive printing.
With Win2PDF 10’s Add Win2PDF Printer new menu item, you can easily make as many of these special-use PDF printers as you’d like. Here’s a short video showing how to add a new copy of the Win2PDF printer.
In an upcoming blog post, we’ll describe how to combine this and other new Win2PDF 10 features to automate tasks and improve your workflow with PDF files.
One of the most significant improvements to Win2PDF 10 is the enhanced Auto-name options. The Auto-name feature allows you to save a PDF file without being prompted for the file name. You can simply print any document and the file will automatically be saved in a location of your choosing, with a file name that you’ve customized. This Win2PDF 10 update improves the user-defined options that are available to use for the file name.
Here is a brief video that shows how to use this new feature.
