We have just released a significant new update (Win2PDF 10 build 116) to our Win2PDF download page. As with other recent updates, this is a FREE upgrade for all Win2PDF users using Win2PDF 7 or higher software.
While we’ve previewed several of these features in blog postings over the past several months, now they have all been collected into an official release with enhanced usability features, new and improved command line features to assist with automated PDF workflows, and bug fixes and performance enhancements. It includes:
Added support for directly converting image files and HTML files from a Windows Explorer Convert with Win2PDF context menu. To convert a JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, or HTML file to PDF, right click and choose “Convert with Win2PDF (see image above).
Added support for viewing PDF files from a Windows Explorer View with Win2PDF context menu. To view a PDF with Win2PDF Desktop, right click and choose “View with Win2PDF”.
2) Command Line Usage and Automation Enhancements
Added support for using web addresses (URLs) for input files in most command line features.
Added support for GETCONTENTSEARCH command line to return text after a search term in a PDF file. This can be used to rename PDF files based on the contents of the file in a Microsoft Power Automate Script.
Recent posts have focused on some of the new features in our Win2PDF 10 update. Now, we’ve created a tutorial that illustrates how you can use these new features to create a copy of the Win2PDF printer that is dedicated to a particular use. In our example, we’ll save encrypted business receipts as PDF files to a specific folder without any user prompting.
This is one example — you can use the same basic principles to set up multiple versions of Win2PDF that are streamlined for specific uses. It’s an easy way to quickly back up files to a specific folder with minimal user interaction.
Watch the following tutorial and then experiment on your own.
Win2PDF 10 makes it easier to add a new copy of the Win2PDF printer. Auto-name and other settings are stored separately for each printer, so you can create different Win2PDF printers for specific settings.
Win2PDF 10 improves performance and reliability.
Win2PDF 10 is a free upgrade for Win2PDF 7 users. If you purchased Win2PDF before October 2009, you can purchase an upgrade for Win2PDF 10 on the updates page.
We’ll be adding more updates on these new features in the coming weeks, but please download you copy today and get started.
