NovaPDF Professional Desktop v7.4.367-DOA
novaPDF is a PDF creator for Windows that allows you to easily create PDF files (that are searchable). With novaPDF, everyone from novice users to professionals can create high-quality documents in industry-standard PDF format, by simply selecting the "Print" command from virtually any application. Once installed, this PDF creator lets you: add PDF bookmarks, insert PDF links, use it as shared network PDF printer, create public/private printing profiles, add PDF watermarks, reduce PDF file size, password protect PDF files, overlay and/or merge PDF files, convert to PDF any printable document and much more.
Using novaPDF you can create PDF files from virtually any application. Make novaPDF the default PDF printer driver and every time you print, a PDF file will be created. Works on both 32 and 64-bit Windows operating systems and doesn't require 3rd party programs such as GhostScript or runtime environments like the .NET Framework.
You can create PDF files (searchable PDF files) while maintaining the original layout of the document by embedding fonts and using different image resolutions (or you can reduce the size of the PDF by using text/image compression).
• Universality. Converts to PDF any type of printable documents (DOC, XLS, PPT, EML, HTML, TXT, PUB, ...) into searchable PDF files.
• PDF Security. PDF files can be password protected to control whether the PDF can be viewed, printed, modified, copied or annotated. 40-bit and 128-bit encryption levels are supported. For example, you can protect the PDF so that readers cannot copy the text from it.
• PDF bookmarks. Detects headings in the original document and adds corresponding bookmarks in the generated PDF file.
• Merge PDF files. You can append or insert the content of the document being converted, to an existing PDF file.
• Shared network PDF printer. nova PDF Server can be installed on one computer in a network environment, and used by any computer in that network (supports also Terminal Servers and Remote Desktop Connections).
• PDF Overlay. This allows adding the content of the document currently being printed via novaPDF as the background or foreground of an existing PDF file, with options to customize the position of that added content.
• PDF Watermark. Using this PDF creator you can stamp a PDF with custom text or an image and apply transparency, rotation, opacity, color variation or other effects.
• Standalone. Does not require GhostScript or other 3rd party software to create PDF files so you can make PDF files right after you have novaPDF installed.
• PDF links support. Any visible text that starts with "http://", "www", "mailto:", "ftp://" or "file://" in your original document can be converted to clickable active PDF links if you choose so.
• Document information. Possibility to set the title, subject, author, keywords for the PDF.
• Support for TrueType and OpenType fonts. To ensure portability you can embed fonts in the PDF file.
• Private profiles. Define profiles for future use, each with its own settings for page size, resolution, fonts, compression, document info and save settings.
• Public profiles. These profiles are created on the PDF server computer and are automatically propagated to all client computers.
• Import/Export profiles. The printing profiles can be exported or imported into different installations, so that you can easily transfer them from one computer to another.
• Multi-language support. The user interface is translated in more than 20 languages.
• Send PDF via email. Can be configured to send the generated PDF automatically via email.
• Reduce PDF file size. This PDF creator supports text and image compression, conversion and image downsampling.
• After save actions. Custom actions can be defined to be performed after the PDF was successfully generated, such as opening (or not) the PDF file with the default viewer once it's created, or running a custom application with given parameters.
