How to Convert to PDF with PDF Creator Plus

Download and install a free trial to try it out, or install and activate your purchased copy. The setup program installs the PDF Creator Plus app and  PDF Creator Plus 8 virtual printer on your computer.

PDF Creator Plus converts files to PDF by printing to the PDF Creator Plus 8 virtual printer instead of your regular printer.

Combining the virtual printer with the PDF Creator Plus app allows you to convert to PDF from a single document or many different documents from different applications. 

The PDF Creator Plus 8 pdf writer app and printer are added to your computer.

To start, open your document in its native application. For example, if it’s a text file, open it in Notepad, as shown below. You would open a Word document in Microsoft Word or an Excel spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel. In the same vein, open and print images with Windows Photos, and so on. Then, select File – Print from the application menu to start adding pages to your PDF.

Click File and then choose Print from the menu to print your file to PDF.

On the Print dialog, pick PDF Creator Plus 8 from the printer options and then proceed by clicking the Print button.

Select PDF Creator Plus 8 from the list of printers then click the Print button.

To add PDF files, import them directly into the PDF Creator Plus app. You can also drag and drop them onto the PDF Creator Plus app to easily add them to your new PDF file.

Working With Files in the PDF Creator Plus PDF

PDF Creator Plus will display the collected pages from PDF files and printed pages from your other files. Continue printing files or dropping PDF files to add more pages.

In the app, you can use the included tools to annotate the pages with text, shape, and images. You can also add, move, rotate, and delete unwanted pages before creating your PDF file.

Printed documents do not keep any outline or hyperlink information. See Creating An Outline/Bookmarks in PDF Creator to learn how to add outline information to your pages before creating your PDF. For hyperlinks, see our article How do I add a hyperlink to a PDF Creator Plus project.
