Create PDF documents comfortably using the "Print" dialog

Use Z-ViPrinter to easily create PDF files from almost any document in any software. Z-ViPrinter is a PDF printer driver which installs a new virtual printer in your Windows operating system. You can then use it from any software which can print documents.

To create a PDF file, just select Z-ViPrinter as the target printer and a PDF document will be created. The new PDF document can even be signed with a digital certificate. Before the PDF is created, a dialog window is shown where you can specify the file name, location and other options, such as automatically attaching it to an e-mail.

Unlike many similar programs, our PDF printer software does not rely on GhostScript for PDF creation. Z-ViPrinter is freeware and can be used free of charge to create unlimited PDF files.

Sending PDF e-mails with the virtual printer

Z-ViPrinter has a built-in e-mail interface which lets you send e-mails directly from this program.

Using the default e-mail program is also possible. If you use Outlook or Thunderbird, for example, you can set up Z-ViPrinter to open that program when sending PDF documents.

Sending PDF faxes with the virtual printer

Faxes can be sent via internet with Z-ViPrinter so you can send faxes from any location where you have an internet connection. The only prerequisite is an account at SMS4. With this service, you can currently send PDF documents of up to 2 MB as faxes.

Signed PDF :: Digital Signatures :: Encryption

Z-ViPrinter is perfectly suited for professional use in companies and organisations. It is easy to encrypt PDF files so that they can only be opened with the correct password. Furthermore, you can digitally sign important documents such as invoices or business letters for secure communication via internet.

Digital PDF signatures are based on a certificate with which you sign individual PDF documents. Z-ViPrinter uses certificates in the widespread PKIX11 standard (X.509 certificates of class 1) which are widely available online. They come as a file which is stored on your computer, Z-ViPrinter reads the file once and can then sign your PDF documents automatically or manually.
